I can hear a few of you freaking out going; this is looking complicated already, though it needs to be done. It's not complicated. I am going to walk you through it, and it is essential. It is known as Google Analytics tracking and you simply must install it into your web site.
It's a little piece of code; your web developer, your web guru, or your I.T. guy will know exactly what to do. Get your web designer to install tracking on your site, just a must-do, no questions asked.
Once Google Analytics tracking is installed, it will tell you everything you need to know about your site's effectiveness, and without this knowledge, you're simply on the road to nowhere.
Among other things it’s going to tell you who your visitors are, where they arrived from, what pages are being visited the most frequently, the length of time visitors stay on each page, and how quickly they leave your page, and really how can you measure a website success without knowing the behaviour of...

Pay-per-click (PPC) ads that appear in Google search results pages can be an effective way to generate traffic—particularly traffic that converts into customers—by jumping to the top of search results.

This means that your landing page should have no global navigation to tie it to your primary website. The main reason for this is to limit the options available to your visitors, helping to guide them toward your intended conversion goal.
Types of Landing Pages
There are two basic types of landing page, "Click Through" and "Lead Generation" (also referred to as Lead Generation or Lead Capture pages).
Click Through Landing Pages (as the name implies) have the goal of persuading the visitor to click through to another page. Typically used in ecommerce funnels, they can be used to describe a...
