I'm sorry to say, that yesterday i received another message from Google about doorway pages, but this time they listed some pages in the message.(Few hours later we are totally removed from index - all sub domains all folders!).
From the type of links they provided i think the problem is as the following (i wont post the website link since its prohibited, if allowed i can post it as a text not a link).
We are a chatting website, where we have 3 chat groups, Ar, En, Es, each group have a number of chat rooms.
the Ar group for example has 30 rooms, each for an Arabian country, like Egypt chat....etc.
We created a web page, for each chat room (each country), when u open the country chat room link you will see all chat rooms list (where the room you want listed with them), u click the room and ur in.
This is a flash chat, so basically, the chat server works like this, we dont have the option (at least for now to get u into the room directly (i asked for a customization for that already).
So do you think Google considered us as doorway pages because we are showing same rooms list? (we show different rooms list for different languages, and some times different chat skins too).
Pages consists of some navigation plus the chat rooms flash code, with a download flash player in /noscript part.
So what is the solution now? im thinking of the following:
1- On the flash side, to popup login box when chat load, then after sign in get you directly in the room page of the web page you entered from.(not to show you the chat rooms list)
2- change the design of chat pages, include some more html content, describing each chat room, list the room admins, and rules.
I know hundred of chatting websites use same navigation style, but they are still in the index, so to be honest im confused what shall i do next!?
Any comments or suggestions appreciated.
Thanks in Advance
