I tried GoTo for about a year, thought it was pretty
useless for a B2B site (lynch mob, hold back!), but
that's neither here nor there I suppose (for those
ready to lynch me, yes, I definitely was very
careful in the titles and descriptions to ensure
that I only received visitors that I wanted).

You can assign internal pages to various keywords
or key phrases if GoTo's only objection is your
main page that locks visitors in your site.

You may want to ask them if you absolutely must
refer visitors to your main page in any of your
purchases -- if not, they should be able to accept
your site.
