One of the most common things mentioned in articles on building successful PPC campaigns is landing page optimization. And rightfully so. The quality of a landing page can have an impact on Google’s weighting of where a paid ad will show and how much each click costs. But what about landing page optimization in articles on SEO? You don’t see it very much. It’s considered stuff for ads and instead you find information on optimized pages.
Why should there be two types of pages? We really shouldn’t be thinking of them as two separate types of pages or actions being taken to a page. In my latest blog post on Search Engine Land, I take a look at how to merge these two types of pages into one optimized landing page. The optimized landing page works great for both PPC and SEO purposes and provides twice the performance.
