Re: annoyed at a doorway site
In looking at the site above I would have to think that Google must have
tens of thousands of items on their "to do" list that have a higher priority
than this... and thats assuming they would even consider removing that site
from the search results.
Yes it is a "doorway" or "splash" page... but the content is small and to
the point. Its not just ramblings going on and on to stuff keywords like:
"buy silver jewelry or jewellery or jewelery online at our online silver
jewellery store - we have gold, silver, platinum, gems, diamonds, emeralds,
rubies, or whatever you want in the way of rings, necklaces, earrings,
chokers, anklets, toe rings, " etc, etc
Then Google would need something to actually act upon... in looking at their
FAQ at: http://www.google.com/intl/en/webmasters/2.html
1. Reasons your site may not be included.
You employ doorway pages. Google does not encourage the use of doorway
pages. We want to point users to content pages, not to doorways or splash
thats what it says... it does not say:
1. Reason your site will not be included.
You employ doorway pages. Google does not allow the use of doorway
With the key phrases there being: "MAY NOT be included" and "DOES NOT
ENCOURAGE the use of doorway page". I read that and it doesn't come across
to me in anything that would give you grounds for asking Google to remove
these guys from the search results.
Then when you consider that their actual website is done up entirely in
flash... all you really have is something that pretty much every flash site
before them has: a splash page to give the search engines content to grab
I seriously think that no matter how much you complain they will never
remove that site from the search results and you'd be better off spending
your time doing something to improve your own ranking instead.
