    20 Ideas for creating traffic rich, search engine friendly pages


    (Page 1 of 6 )

    Sometimes questions will arise around the subject of gateway information pages or doorway pages. People have heard that "doorway pages" are BAD and some have stated that search engines "hate doorway pages".

    For clarification on these type of issues, let's start by explaining some simple ground rules looking beyond the jargon and terminology.

    Do Search Engines Hate Doorway/Gateway Pages?

    To answer this we'll examine it in two steps.

    Let's understand:

    1. What it is that the Search Engines "HATE"?

    and then...

    2. What type of pages the search engines "LOVE"?

    With this approach it will help us gain some understanding of the criteria that is most important.

    1. What the Search Engines HATE:

    a) To put it simply, search engines despise low quality doorway pages that contain little or no useful content. A few years ago these type of low quality doorway pages were rampantly produced as a means to try and trick the search engines. Looking at it from the search engines point of view, why even publish a page if all it contains is a couple of lines of text and an "enter the store" link. Pages with VERY LITTLE VALUE to the reader, do not belong in a search engine's index.

    b) Search engines also despise any kind of duplication or use of mirror pages. Again, little or no content (often just garbled text or keyword rich paragraphs that have no real value) were reproduced over and over and cluttered up the search engines. These pages were supposedly going to bring great traffic but the bottom line is that they were and still are all labeled by engines as Spam.
