Have you ever been to a site where they ask you to register and log in before seeing any of their content?
Here’s why they might allow that. First, any site with extensive content that wishes to “sign you up” obviously has an ulterior motive for doing so. They attract you with the content, and then they would like to track you as a visitor, for the purpose of serving ads to you, which is one of the ways they make money. The more visitors, the more they can charge for ads. Plus, the easier their content is to find, the more visitors they will get. Ergo, they need their content to show up in search engines.
