Now I know Hubpages has something to say about doorway pages - but I forget where ( does anybody know the reference?)
However it's worth noting that yesterday Google also spoke on the topic of Doorway Pages - see An update on doorway pages - just to reinforce the point that they don't like them
The link above took me to the Google Webmaster Central Blog, but said the page was not there. I simply clicked on the Webmaster Central Blog at the top, and then was able to scroll down and read it. Very interesting.
I hope I'm not misunderstanding you, but 'Doorway Pages' is the subject of the most recent HubPages Weekly.
I raised this thread before they wrote their post.
As in I wrote the first post in this thread 2 days ago on 17th March, soon after Google published the post on their blog post on Monday 16th March. Who knows - maybe they raised the issue because I started this thread?
Here's the original if you'd like to see what Google actually said on Monday, March 16, 2015
I think it's a bit different to how HubPages has interpreted it (16 hours ago on 18th March). Others may have a different view.
Thanks - I've now corrected the link (there was a small error)
I do know that Relache!!
The point of the post was to highlight the fact that they have now said something NEW about Doorway Pages! As in a brand new post on the Official Google Webmaster Central Blog.
The clue that I already knew they didn't like them came in the phrase just to reinforce the point that they don't like them
I don't know about you but I always pay attention when Google has anything NEW to say about how it is operating.....
I wonder if this will fuel outright copying of content instead of pointing to it.
I wonder if this is why the Google offices are mainly open plan.

I am a photographer and use some of mine on my hubs too. I usually credit myself with my hub name and haven't had any issues so far.

In his hub 'What We Don't Know About Google Panda?', Paul Edmondson points out that Google seems to expect sites to leap high above any bar that might reasonably be set for quality purposes.Paul seems less than happy with Google's attitude. He seems to think that if a page can somehow limp over...

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were very successful and even now still have scores above 70 or higher.One of the hubs...

I have been on Hub Pages about a year and I have written about 27 Hubs and they have received close to 5000 views, which I felt was not bad and my status hovers between 82-88. Last week I had about 8 of my Hubs featured, which again seemed ok. Now magically overnight, I have all these codes now...

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the reality proved me I was wrong. My Traffic Is Constantly Going DownI did complain a...
