Traditionally (and what will get you banned), a doorway page is a page that is created with the sole reson of ranking. It is an invisible page that no one but the spiders is meant to se. The reason humans don't get it is athat a doorway (or gateway) page has an instant redirect that delivers a different page.

Sort of like low level cloaking

I think these days as a doorway page being a page that concentrates solely on one keyword on the page for the purpose of attracting more traffic to your site. Pages are seen and are part of the site. I would use a page for related infomation. For example, if I had a site selling expensive clothes, i may dedicate a page to how you should care for different fabrics. Once the searcher is on our site they are a potential customer and should be able to navigate round the rest of your site from this page.

A doorway page is a page that send search engine bots to one page, and send human to another, as a way to manipulate search engine ranking. In which, is highly NOT recommended.

I think Doorway Pages are web pages that have been created for the sole purpose of ranking highly in the search results for one or two searchterms or getting more traffics.They are also known as portal pages, jump pages, gateway pages, entry pages and by other name.

Default hi

A gateway page is a low quality web page that contains very little content and exists solely for the purpose of driving traffic to another page. This is done through spamdexing, spamming the index of a search engine. Gateway pages are often easy to identify in that they have been designed primarily for search engines, not for human beings.

Doorway page is basically a page optimized with targeted keywords to rank in SERP then redirect to another page. Doorway page is full of keywords and try to trick search engine.

Doorway page is also called entrance page, or information. Generally what it means is a web page that specifically designed contains more relavent keywords in a single page in order to rank higher in the spider search engines.
