Don't rely on them either......try to optimize for a keyword without them
Ideally all of your pages should in a sense be doorway pages.
That is a very powerful statement, as all pages should be in a sense doorway pages.
Ok, lets say with careful navigation planning and keyword optimization you achive some what of a doorway (I still think it is not easy to do). But then to really pull traffic into each of your pages you need in engines that rely on link popularity a number of links pointing to each of the "doorway" pages. Then the links and pages from which they come would ideally be themed. Wow you are talking about a lot of work there :)
Well!!you could say that, but!!
In my world, a doorway page is a page optimized for one keyword and one SE only. You use the content pages of your site to create pages customized for a specific keyword on a specific SE. Each page should be readable and viewable by humans.
If you are carefull when you creat your content pages, they will work as "broad/average" Doorway pages on the most important keywords/SE
