Doorway pages are defined as low-quality pages optimise to SERP well for specific keyword that act as a door between users and content. Characteristically, they offer small value to visitors and serve the sole purpose of increase SEO value.

•Substantially similar pages that are closer to search results than a clearly defined, browseable hierarchy
