1. Page Title SEO Tips for Landing Page

The below landing page image has a Title - which is a targeted keyword phrase if you type in "Website Design for Business".

Previously it was the "Corporate Website Development" keyword which is currently ranked on the first page in Google index in Ireland nd it took 2 months which is usually about 3-6 months.

You can use Ubersuggest to find keywords for your website.

3. Call To Action (CTA) SEO tips for landing page

You have to tell the users what they should do on your website if you want them to do something - in this example I wanted people to get in touch with me so I have a button placed "Get In Touch" in the middle of the screen, once the user clicks it will bring to my contact information.

The call to action can be the 'Try For Free' button if you are offering a trial of a product or a service, it can have the ' learn more about us' button if want to increase brand awareness or the 'get in touch' button which leads to a contact page where they can contact you by phone, email, or contact form.

You can have more Call To Action buttons trough out the website, a great idea to have CTA at the end of the page.

When naming a button, the first word should be a direct command to the user such as "Get", "Join", "Subscribe", "Try", and so on, this will increase a higher chance of users clicking to where ever you want them to land on your website.

4. Include Services or Products

In this section, we can showcase some of the products and/or services by adding a quick summary and another Call To Action button.

The user can clearly see straight away what services or products your business offers, below is a bad example for Learn More, for SEO it would make it better to have a descriptive button explanation. For example E-Commerce button instead of "Learn More" would be more appealing to have a "Let's create online E-Commerce" button, sometimes long text won't be possible due to design and we will try to shorten it down for example to "eCommerce Website".

5. Service or Product Benefits

This SEO tip for the landing page should be focused mostly on the business culture, and explain WHY to choose your business over another business.

Examples of success stories that can be added to the landing page are:
