Should You Gate Content? The SEO Implications

A few members on this forum really need to read this blog post.

Content marketing is the hot topic these days, but lead generation marketers are faced with a conundrum: How do I get the visibility for my content via organic search while at the same time capturing leads?gates-shut--closed-shutterstock

I have seen last part of Blog. In that she mentioned that for gate content you have to add one form per sessions, also adding social buttons, and etc.

So as a user point of view user want direct point of view why he/she wasting times for login or fill up the form. For viewing content user must have to fill up the form than it is worthless.

So this is mine opinion i don't know it is good or bed....

Surely if you gate content, you wouldn't want those pages appearing in the search results anyway?

Simple. Create content that isn't gated which will entice users into signing up to access the gated content. This content will also be visible to the bots.
It's up to you whether you think the benefit of gating content outweighs the losses of not having those pages visible within the SERPs.
