Thats the thing jeff, i never say you have to do this or that.
I start threads like this to plant the seed and give us ideas to research, which ones are best for you is none of my business.

Once in awhile a troll like figgy comes around who doesnt believe in something.
Why is beyond me.
Dont post if you cannot respectfully debate an opposing viewpoint

You could just create a page on your website cactus carpet cleaning. So yes

Then if you did adwords campaign use that as the link
Except for the no distractions thing. Martin pointed out. Cause I always thought to just rank each page from site as well, but it wouldn't really be a true landing page. In every since of the word. Just a thought. I know it would be cheaper, but still.

. He explains it better.

Let me make this clear and I hope @shane deubell and the ones who care help on this to keep it viral.

a landing page is not necessarily made to execute sales. It is meant to attract prospects and keep them focused on whatever the objective is. Whether it is to collect e-mails or names or anything to eventually turn this prospects into buyers or permanent followers. That is the purpose of a landing page.
@Ryankettering I say it is a viral piece because on any campaign. One will be directing the readers to a certain url. If that url happens to be you website, That becomes your landing page. However, it is been proven that a dedicated page focused to your specific "offer" with no distractions will increase the number of conversions by huge percentages. That is the reason they created "landing pages:" which is nothing else than "dedicated Pages"

In short, it is best that people land on a dedicated page than on a home page full of general and most times, boring , dated, and useless information.

Okay.

I can respect that. And lord knows I respect Martin.

My point has been from the beginning that this landing page thingy @shane deubell has finally discovered is beyond overkill.

Hay...If you've got time to burn, have at it.

But Most here don't have the want, need nor luxury to fiddle around with this outdated landing page thingy

I don't use one either. And really just read a few lines. But what Martin said made sense. I hear ya on the time restraints. I have a list a mile long. And this just wouldn't be pushed to the top. But cool for those looking to try it out and let us know.

It's not outdated buddy. In fact, with the monopolization of the first page by the directories like yelp, angies list and such, I really think that
PPC will skyrocket again. Most people think that all landing pages a big ass "sales" pages which is not necessarily true. Here is a landing page we did for a BNI friend designated for one campaign on a special she has going for BNI memebers and friends. link not valid

How is yelp and angies list getting on first page everywhere. Just because they are gathering clicks nationwide making them more relevant to google? I am still ahead of both. They used to and still do sometimes do a ppc here. But they are coming up organically on first page at the bottom on my keywords I use.

they are seen as trusted giants by google. therefore, they get priority before anyone else. They are not dominating all areas as they are still growing but soon you will not be able to rank anywhere near them unless, you advertise with them. Money talks and google is money hungry.

I agree that landing pages can very useful but with the little effort most of us put into marketing, I can agree with 6' that there's hundred other things we have to be doing before spending time on building landing pages.

Most of us don't get that far...
