Great forum and great information here, have lurked quite a while and picked up lots of great advice.
I know I am new here and I hate my first post being of this nature but I am in a position that the client is now converned that the work I have done could be detremental to the performance and rankings of the site. So i was hoping if Jill or someone suitably qualified can confirm if I am correct in what I have done or if infact I have made a mistake.
I have been doing web development work and some onsite SEO for a client with a site in a very competititve industry and was recently asked to put some sort of notification for site visitors to read about the delivery of their items.
The basic idea was a "one time" message that would tell every new visitor this one piece of important information and then once they click the area it would dissapear forever.
The information box is a Div with a class:
It sets a cookie to know that the user has seen the content and then will not show that information to them again once closed (unless they delete their cookies)
Because the content is not spammy or using any keywords that the target page is competing for that this would not be the case.
Whats your thoughts on this, do you see a problem or is this just panic over nothing?
