I like the idea of having everything in one place without the need for constant integrations, however, I do have one concern that is preventing me from making the switch.
Gated content without full indexing is really not ideal, it would cause more harm than good, especially for a publication with decent SERP authority. We currently use a system (without name dropping) that allows all articles to be fully indexed. It detects all search crawlers and disables the wall for them to allow a full index.
A couple of other options that we would miss is the ability to allow a number of free articles before asking the user to register.
Are there any publications that have had success using Ghost with the restricted indexing?
