Doorway pages are easy to recognize in that they have been designed mainly for search engines, not for human beings. This page explains how these pages are delivered technically, and some of the problems they pose.

Cloaking is a synthetic methods used for boosting rankings and many a time website are penalized by search engine doing this activity.

Hello Good Eve,

The major difference between Doorway page and cloaking pages is:

Doorway pages are set of multiple similar pages created in search engines and redirect to the similar destination.

Cloaking pages are different URL pages for human  users and different for the search engines. They violate the Google's Webmaster Guidelines as they mislead users on different pages than desired by the users.

Hope this brief description shows the difference...

Doorway page is a keyword stuffed page which after a few minutes redirects to another page.This is for spamming the index of a search engine by inserting results for particular phrases with the purpose of sending visitors to a different page.


Cloaking is a search engine optimization (SEO) technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's browser.

Cloaking is presenting different content for search engines and users.Content is for search engine purpose not for user.Doorway pages are creating more pages which redirects irrelevant content to drive more traffic.Both are black hat seo techniques and not recommended to follow.

Both are black hat seo techniques. In cloacking the content presented to the search engine's spider is different to that of the users browser. Whereas doorway pages are the low quality pages whose main purpose is to rank a website as per some specific keywords which mainly acts as a doorway between the users and the content. This is basically used to boost the SEO tactics only.

Both techniques are similar and both techniques are black hat seo.
Clocking: A Web Page with two different formats, One is for Search Engines and One is for Web users.
Door Way Pages-: The pages redirects from the actual source of Knowledge, which a user actually looking for.

Doorway page as well cloaking both are the part of black hat seo, and we should not used these two things will doing the seo.

Doorways page are simple HTML pages that are customized with few keywords or phrases and they are programmed to visible only few search engine bots. Easily you will come identified the doorway pages, it will redirect to another page.

Cloaking is the method where the content is presented to search engines spider it will be different as compared to the content present to the human visitors

A Doorway page is a keyword stuffed page which after a few minutes redirects to another page by using meta refresh. But this is consider as black hat technique.
cloaking is also consider as black hat technique. in cloaking bot sees different content whereas the visitors see a totally different content, It may refer to hidden text in a web site i.e. by font size or hidden text and there are many other technique.
