    Could this hurt SEO


    I am working on a website that is really great looking but the only thing I was kinda wondering about is their homepage.
    deschamps-braly.com
    Visually speaking I like it a lot (also because it conveys a nice sense of anonymity which is something appreciated given the industry), but it does not have a word on it, just a phone number. So I guess that's not helping. Do you think there would be a way to accomplish having anonymity, good design and something Google would count?
    Thank you for your opinion

    By the time it turns to black and the visual component is removed, I don't see why you couldn't have text. Keep in mind, the current text - sans the phone number - is an image, and you need readable text.

    Hey,
    thank you so much for your reply.
    Yes having some text when the video is over could be a good approach.
    We could try something that goes well with the visual

    man that phone number needs to go ASAP IMHO... looks very odd on such a nice homepage.

    Google analyzes behavioral factors. If users come to your site and immediately exit, this is a bad sign for google. I would in your place have placed some kind of survey or game on the site, if you want to maintain anonymity. You can think of another way to keep the user on the site.
