Webmasters are sometimes told to submit "bridge" pages or "doorway" pages to search engines to improve their traffic. Doorway pages are created to do well for particular phrases. They are also known as portal pages, jump pages, gateway pages, entry pages, and by other names as well Doorway pages are easy to identify in that they have been designed primarily for search engines, not for human beings. This page explains how these pages are delivered technically, and some of the problems they pose.

Doorway pages are typically large sets of poor-quality pages where each page is optimized for a specific keyword or phrase. In many cases, doorway pages are written to rank for a particular phrase and then funnel users to a single destination.

Hi,
Doorway Pages are those web-pages that are created for spamming the the index of search engine. These pages are simple HTML pages and are customized to a particular keywords. The main purpose of creating such pages is to trick the search engine's spider into giving high ranking to the site.

It doesn't direct you to another site, it is a special page you create in order to get visitors using the search engines to find your site.

Google doesn't like doorway pages; it sees creating doorway pages as deliberately trying to cheat on your positioning in the search engines.

In nutshell doorway pages are used to show two different images of a web page. One is to search engine at the time of crawling and another one is for the visitors. Intention behind this to play safe as well as to rank better in search engine result pages.

I don't think we need any further explanations of what doorway pages are, so would anyone now reading this thread please be sure they are adding something new before posting a comment.
