Hi All,

My companys ranks high in SERPS for some of the keywords related to my products. Now my company is launcing a new service and wants to display a modal window in the homepage which will occupy the full page for a few secs and then dissappear.

Is this safe and will it have any impact on my prior SEO efforts

the script my techies are using

<script type="text/javascript">
var agreewin=dhtmlmodal.open("agreebox", "iframe", "Splash-quickstart.html", "", "width=860px,height=447px,center=1,resize=0,scrolling=0", "recal")

Let me know your thoughts

It's JS so unlikely to even be triggered by the spider.

It also isn't modal, as no user intervention is required to close the window.

it will have no seo impat has the javascript link wont be spired by search engine bots. if you the contents of the window to be indexed you need to create a regular anchor link to it somewhere like in the sitemap..
