Don't Use Doorway or Splash Pages

Doorway pages (also known as splash pages) contain a graphic or limited web page content. These type of pages are used as an entrance to a website or to redirect the visitor to another page.

Doorway pages (splash pages) do not contain enough text for search engines to read.

Some doorway pages (splash pages) will get you banned from the search engines.

Websites that use cloaking pages, hidden links and other sneaky techniques to try and fool the search engines will get the website banned.

Read Google's Cloaking, sneaky Javascript redirects, and doorway pages article to see if your home page falls into this category.
