    Doorway question

    A doorway page or gateway page is a page optimalised for one keyword and then redirecting this visitor to another website.
    If this correct what in following assumption.

    Site abc.com is reaching some high ranking for his main keywords.

    Keyword "new key" is nowhere to be found but the webmaster is adding a page to his site and is optimalising the page for this new keyword.
    Once he achieves the top he then can redirect to the highest bidding site for the keyword "new key".

    Is this a spam doorwaypage or can this be done?

    Hope I won't burn on this one :-)

    Due to link popularity doorway pages are useless.

    Instead treat every normal page as a "doorway page."

    If you only think people enter your site from your front page, and so you only optimize your front page, you won't get near the potential traffic as if you optimized and submitted (to directories) every appropriate section, area, or article.

    I just realized this in the last couple of months as google has been slowly deep-spidering my sites.

    *shrug* I'm still confused.

    Lets say that the general hypo site abc.com is being optimised for 'internet business'.
    * Adding a page to that site about monkeys and optimized for monkeys will not work because the main keyword mushroom is 'internet business'. => no correlation
    * Adding a page and optimizing it eg 'e-business consultancy' => this will rank highre because 'e-business consultancy' is closer to 'internet business'.

    Am I still right here?
    So adding a 'site related' 'sub page' or 'portal page' highly optimzed with RELEVANT information about a topic (eg accountancy). This page could be ranking high and be sold to the higest bidding?

    This is something I have in mind and donno if it concept already exists... :-)

    Thx 4 your reactions!

    No. You can't get a page high on the search engines by just putting keywords on it. You need incoming links.

    Unless you get substantial numbers of people to link to your doorway page it will not bring in much traffic at all, if any.
