Landing Pages: Best Practices for Successful AdWords Campaigns

Landing pages that correspond with your Google AdWords keywords and ads are essential to the success of your campaigns. When someone clicks on your ad, they expect to be taken to a webpage that directly relates to the ad. If your landing pages don’t correspond to your ad, visitors are much more likely to leave your site.

Recently, we redesigned the website for our client, AutoMobilitySales.com (AMS), making sure landing pages were optimized with related, relevant keywords. Take a look below at one of our PPC ads and the corresponding landing page for AMS:
