Creating Keyword Specific Doorway Pages
By Unknown


One of the things you should learn to master when you are doing business on the Internet is to get high ranking in the Search Engines. The competition is hard, but it can be done. What I am about to reveal to you will increase your traffic ten fold, but it must be done correctly. The goal is to create powerful doorway pages that not only rank high in the Search Engines, but are Search Engine friendly and provide some valuable content for your visitors.

What is a doorway page anyway? A doorway page is a webpage specifically designed to rank high in the Search Engines for a specific keyword or keyword phrase. Not just a blank page with a link that redirects to your main page, but a powerful, content rich page packed with your keywords.

First of all, select three of the most specific keyword phrases that best describe your website. If your website is about home business, then your keyword phrases might be: home business, home worker, work from home.

Type your keywords in three different text styles to accomodate the different styles that may be used in a search query. Place these keyword phrases, separated with a comma, in your KEYWORD meta tags between the HEAD tags of your HTML.

Example:

<META name="KEYWORDS" content=" home business, home worker, work from home, Home Business, Home Worker, Work From Home, HOME BUSINESS, HOME WORKER, WORK FROM HOME">

Next, write a descriptive sentence about your website packed with your keywords for your DESCRIPTION Meta tag.

Example:

<META name="DESCRIPTION" content="Home Business Tips From Top Professional Home Worker That Work From Home">

Write a descriptive TITLE for your page that includes your KEYWORDS.

<TITLE>Home Business Tips: Home Business Tips, Work from home and more</TITLE>

Your doorway page should load very quickly, so keep your graphics to a minimum. Make sure you don't include any banners and place your main logo at the top of your page. Place your keywords within the image tag using the ALT tag. Below your logo, include an intriguing sentence and link it to your main page.

Example:

<IMG SRC="yourlogo.gif" WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="60" ALT="home business, home worker, work from home" BORDER="0">For More Professional Home Business Tips, <A HREF="http://www.yourgateway.com/Your_ID/FREE">Click Here </A>

In addition to placing your keywords in your Meta tags Title, and Image tag, you can also use the Comment tag. Comment tags can be used throughout your page to organize your content and make updating easier. They also provide another great way to place your KEYWORDS. They won't be visible on your webpage, just in the HTML

Example:

<!--Begin Home Business Navigation-->

<!--End Home Business Navigation-->

The key to creating powerful, keyword rich, Search Engine friendly doorway pages is to provide some valuable content. In the body of your webpage, provide your visitors with a free article or report with your keywords listed throughout. If you create more than one doorway page, you'll need to provide a different article or report for each page. Make sure you don't go over board with your keywords, as you can be penalized. In addition, make certain that your article or report sounds good and not just thrown together to get your keywords listed.

Here's the basic HTML outline for your doorway page:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META name="KEYWORDS" content=" home business, home worker, work from home, Home Business, Home Worker, Work From Home, HOME BUSINESS, HOME WORKER, WORK FROM HOME">
<META name="DESCRIPTION" content="Home Business Tips From Top Professional Home Worker That Work From Home">
<TITLE>Home Business Tips: Home Business Tips, Work from home and more</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

<!--Begin Home Business Navigation-->

<IMG SRC="yourlogo.gif" WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="60" ALT="home business, home worker, work from home" BORDER="0"><BR>For More Professional Home Business Tips, <A HREF="http://www.yourgateway.com/Your_ID/FREE">Click Here </A>

<!--End Home Business Navigation-->

After you've created your doorway page, save your page using one of your keywords.

Example:

home_business.html

If you're creating many pages, simply add a number to the end of your page.

Example:

home_business_1.html
home_business_2.html

home_worker_1.html
home_worker_2.html

work_from_home_1.html
work_from_home_2.html

When you're ready to submit your pages to the Search Engines, submit only one page each day. If you've created several pages you'd like to submit, you may want to create an additional page that contains links to each of your doorway pages. That way, you can submit just your links page and let the Search Engines crawl the rest of your links.

Creating doorway pages is a powerful way to increase your website traffic, but don't stop at just one. Imagine how much traffic you'd receive with 100 keyword packed, doorway pages all pointing to your website...
