Does Pay With a Like have any impact on Search engine bots like GoogleBot?

Does this impact what googlebot or others see? Will this scale to a site with over 4 million posts? How does it specifically work?

    Hey there Candace,

    hope you're doing good and thanks for reaching us! :slight_smile:

    Does this impact what googlebot or others see?

    By default, Google and other crawlers are able to see only content which is publicly available.
    So if you "hide" it behind a membership plugin or in a kind-of content protection plugin with a social share paywall like Pay With A Like, it shouldn't be visible.
    Despite that, there's an option in Pay with a Like -> Settings -> Button Visibility Settings [box], called "Search bots see full content". Turn this to "yes" and your posts should be available in search results.

    Will this scale to a site with over 4 million posts?

    I can't see a reason why shouldn't be. You won't display 4m posts in a single page, right? :smiley:
