I usually use my doorway pages to check the user's browser for plug-ins then direct them to the main site. With a faster connection users barely see the doorway page, even though it's the page they followed from a search engine. A piece of JavaScript takes them right to the main site but, the search engines see the initial page and index it, so I usually load it with keywords, which gives the user something to read while the site is redirecting and gives the SE's good keyword density to improve your ranking. An english teacher would love those sentences. I have a bad tendency toward comma splices....sorry.
