In this article, I will be looking at the landing pages in PPC campaigns which, if you read lots of my articles here on, will have heard me say a thousand times that, in my opinion, one of, if not the, most important aspect to a PPC campaign is the landing page (as this is where the conversion takes place).


The landing page in a PPC campaign is a web page which advertisers direct traffic to from their PPC adverts – the web user sees the advert, clicks on it and ends up onto it.

To finish this article off, I think it is also important to install Google Analytics onto the landing page. PPC programs such as Google AdWords don’t provide much support for analysing the landing page when compared to what Google Analytics offers. If you truly want to learn about your traffic and your landing page’s potential, install Google Analytics or a similar coded analytical program.
