Home or Blog Page for a Website's Landing Page?

Last Update: April 20, 2014

I want to create a page that reduces my current bounce rate, but not sure where to start!Is it better to create a specific landing page for your site rather than relying on the Home or Blog pages?

If so, are there any guidelines to follow about building an effective landing page?

Google has a free guide but I think put yourself in the place of the person landing on your page. Capture their attention and give them a reason to keep reading. As a guide look for sites that capture your attention and see why. I suggest Neil Patel is a good one to check.

What I would say is write about 7 or 8 Good solid articles/blog posts of interest that gets the traffic then when you get hits then change to a website PAGE but to begin I would say blog posts

That sounds like a good idea. I was concerned that if you have a second rate home page, visitors will bounce off before they see any of your posts.

Interesting, I'm also thinking of making one landing page. More of a test, to see what happens. It's a domain with high potential keyword.

Here at WA they recommend to use a blogroll as landing page. I personnally use a homepage where I do integrate my latest posts using a plugin post on page. I did use for other websites a squeeze or landing page without great success. You can find some free sites where you can create free landing pages or you can use some plugins to create squeeze pages. You can take a look at my WA site: mybestinternetmarketingtools.com.

Guy, thanks for this. I feel a special page is better than the blog roll, but that's a personal opinion. But I have no conversion evidence.

I like what you've done on your site, especially the great video. Couldn't get the squeeze landing page to open - says it's parked at GoDaddy!

I guess it can be very effective for building email list. What would happen if I put my email in?
