The BIG List: PPC Landing Page Guides & Resources


In PPC, so much focus goes into the front end of channel selection, campaign creation/targeting, keywords, ad messages, etc.

Often, the landing page and its performance are often neglected. Sometimes the client doesn’t see the value. Sometimes they are too small to have the resources to invest in landing page creation. Other times, landing pages suddenly come under scrutiny if performance goals aren’t being met.

Regardless, landing pages can make or break any PPC account and deserve your time and attention. To help you along the way, here are some fabulous resources for you, your client and creative teams.

Landing Page Testing

In conclusion, you can build what you think is the best page, optimize it based on the tips above and launch it, but you’ll never know if it outperforms your control. Google Ads makes it easy for you with experiments. If you haven’t set up an experiment yet, learn more in How to Run Split Landing Page Tests with AdWords Campaign Experiments.
