slamming doorA little over a month ago, Google announced they revised their doorway algorithm and updated their guidelines around doorway pages.

But watching the space for a month, all I see are webmasters asking if it really launched or if it was still in the queue to launch.

Google's John Mueller was asked if it launched by Joshua Berg in a Google+ hangout this morning and John Mueller said "I believe that has rolled out, yea."

He basically did confirm that the doorway algorithm did launch.

He said this at the 18:55 mark in the video, here is the embed with the question and answer so you can watch yourself:

I should note, I track a ton of forums and all the threads I've seen on the doorway pages, both in whitehat and blackhat forums, still have people asking if it really launched.
