Stay Away From Auto Generated Doorway Pages

July 8, 2006 by  

This might be obvious to some people but to those who are not familiar with doorway pages, they are created to attract traffic from search engines.

Doorway pages are created to do well for particular phrases. Problem with this is that most of them may be so similar to each other they are considered duplicates by the search engines.

For an example, check out this reminder from Matt Cutts: If your website isn’t showing on Google, you should check your own domain.

He caught a guy trying to rank for the phrase “madonna star sex porno”, using doorway template. Funny thing is even the copyright says “Copyright 2004 madonna star sex porno Company. All Rights Reserved.”
