GOOGLE scored 9 out of 10?

google-pagerank

Here is a list of websites with a PageRank of 10 out of 10. You guessed it! PageRank was named after one of the founders Larry Page. PageRank works by counting the number and quality of links to a page to determine a rough estimate of how important the website is. The underlying assumption is that more important websites are likely to receive more links from other websites.

This is an honor because Google themselves, along with Adobe, Apple, Facebook have only received a 9. Microsoft only got an 8…What is it about this list that gives them a 10?

5 things to help your landing convert?

Most people assume that building a website is a straightforward process. You select a name, decide on the host and publish your website.

Unfortunately, it never seems to work out that way. Here is an article from Forbes, where a few things to think about are listed.

1] Using an image slider. I think this is a great tool, however, the argument for banner blindness can be used here. If you do not use very straightforward images in your slider, the information can be an overload.

2] How intentional is the content on your landing? Content is key, YES! However, filler content, is Killer content…

3] When you are looking to convert, as previously mentioned, do not confuse the visitor with extra content. Use every opportunity to convert them, especially an email.

4] If you do decide to use large blocks of text, make every word count. Just like any story, create a hook thesis and conclude the piece with your answer. If the body of your text is going to be long, just make sure that it is all relevant.

5] Finally, since mobile conversions are ever growing…make sure your landing responds to the mobile devices.

YES, “Build it and they will come”, but will they stay? Please let us know what other Conversion Killers we have missed.
