Digital Marketing - Study Notes:

Optimizing landing pages

A core component of SEO is to create landing pages for different users and to optimize those pages with content or appropriate conversion mechanics and calls to action.

In the world of conversion rate optimization, landing pages can vary depending on the channel through which the users arrive. But in the case of organic search, it’s best to create a landing page per keyword or keyword theme for which you are trying to rank. This makes it clear to the search engine that this page is specifically focused on one topic. When implemented correctly, you are more likely to appear for searches for the keywords contained in these pages.

On the page itself, you can include CTAs to drive action or adapt the tone of the page messaging to bring people along the conversion funnel. As people arrive on the landing page from a particular search theme, you can harness their search intent with your CTAs and specific text or copy to take them to the next step and closer to your business objective.
