All suggestions will be appreciated.
The warning page gives the person a choice of links, one link for 18 and over takes them to our site, and the other links to a non-profit organization that provides the same type of information but addressed to teens.
As far as links, we have received a number of links from major, quality companies in our industry, sites with excellent PR, even so, as far as Google seems to be concerned, we do not have any links (but this is another issue). The links that we do have go to our warning page. If we bypassed the warning page this would defeat our purpose of giving a warning so how do we get around that?
We have only been online about 4 months and at least as far as Alexa is concerned, during the past couple of weeks our traffic has been ranking near or even ahead of some sites in our field that are operated by people with big bucks including television. Our own statistics show that we are growing rapidly even though we spend no money on advertising. Naturally we do not want to make changes that would mess the present growth up. We do want search engine traffic so we need some type of balance. Any additional advice would be appreciated. By the way, the we is me and the mouse in my back pocket!
Be sure that the link from the warning page to your site is HTML (no flash, etc.) so all spiders will be able to read it.
Inside your site, have a sitemap that links to every page on your site.
And one comment - Of course, if the spiders do start crawling your entire site and indexing more pages, you're going to have people entering through those pages. It sounds like you want to avoid that.
