This is my first post on this forum so please go easy with me.
Maybe this has been asked before but I couldn't find any answer. Sorry if so. Please direct me to further reading.
How could this practice affect the SERP?
Does the google bot follows the redirect?
Will the ranking of my popups be transferred to the home-page? I mean if i search for my important keywords and land in a certain pop up, what will be displayed in the Search Engine Result Page? The home page (that displayed after the redirect) or the popup itself?
If the google bot follows the redirect, will the pop-ups be indexed?
Will this be seen as doorway pages?

Is the site map a viable solution?

A sitemap and the <noscript> tag are viable options.

I agree with all of the above.
The JS popup script is probably going to stop the spiders in their tracks. Our own Torka has provided a link to some code that is SE friendly for popups previously on the forum. I don't have any of those handy right now, but if you do a forum search for "perfect popup" I'm sure you'll find one of her posts.
My concern is different though...
Even if you used the perfect popup, noscript or site map method to get the pages indexed you're still going to run into visitor issues. You mentioned that there are no navigation links in your popups. So even if you get those indexed and get traffic to them, your visitors will have no way to get to the parts of your site that are important to you.
Meaning the parts that will allow you to convert them from visitors into buyers.
So if you go any of those routes you're going to need to give them a way to get back to your main site. There are scripting ways to do that with your popups of course, but you'll want to implement those at the same time if you want to make those popup pages available. Which approach to take is going to depend upon what you're currently using and what your server supports.

If the pop-up was opened form another page (like the SERP) I was planning to redirect the user to the main page.
This may sound silly and I see myself kind of "forced" to explain what's with this strange pop-ups I want to use .
Soooo, I have a site with a lot of options in some pages and I need some kind of help pages that should guide an user to what he can do in a certain page. This is what the pop-ups are for . There is a lot of text in many of them, and some are dinamicaly generated and this is some kind of try to optimise the loading speed.
Thanks for the hint.. I will search for the "perfect pop-up"
P.S. Have I mentioned this before? GREAT FORUM

Even if the onload worked with the SE's (doubtful, though I've not tested it recently) they would get sent to the main home page, not the popup page.
If you're using one of the dynamic, server-side scripting languages I can think of ways to possibly pull it off, and load a page that has the navigation structure into it that anybody lands on. But that's going to depend upon your coding.
If you want to try something like that, are you using HTML, PHP, ASP, CFM or what exactly?

I don't want the spider to folow the redirect and then the SERP to point to the Homepage... I want the SERP to point to the page it found the keywords in.
The popups will be listed in the Site map so will get indexed (I haven't looked at the "perfect popup" solution, yet, will look into it tomorow)

Just like a TP doorway page then
