When advertising cosmetic surgery or any business on the Internet, using gateway pages can be very beneficial. Carefully selecting and using keywords on the pages of your website is essential to earning high rankings in the search engines. By using more keywords, however, you run the risk of diluting the relevance of any one keyword. One effective way to contend with this problem is using gateway pages.
A gateway page is a page designed specifically for search engine submission and is created around a specific set of keywords. With these pages, there is a greater chance that the keywords will be given more relevancy and thus the page will perform better in the search engines. These pages offer good content but are also keyword-rich, appealing to both visitors and search engine spiders.
In essence, gateway pages act as an entry point, helping people to find your site. Because they do not need to fit into the normal structure of a site, the site architecture need not be redesigned to accommodate them. Further, because different search engines follow different rules for ranking pages, gateway pages can be created to specifically target a single search engine.
