Premise – WordPress Landing pages made easy

premise landing pages

According to Wikipedia, the definition of a landing page is:

….. a landing page, sometimes known as a lead capture page, is a single web page that appears in response to clicking on an advertisement.
The landing page will usually display directed sales copy that is a logical extension of the advertisement or link.
The general goal of a landing page is to convert site visitors into sales leads.

In short, a landing page is a page where you make the sale, clinch the deal, get the subscription or whatever else you’re trying to get visitors to do.

“Evolution” – the Ultimate Responsive Theme

evolution theme by elegant themes There was a time when all you had to think about, when deciding on the layout of your website, was the most popular screen resolutions.

But now, you have to consider mobile devices… phones, tablets, netbooks and anything else that lets you browse when you’re on the move.

Fortunately Elegant Themes has brought out Evolution a responsive WordPress theme that adapts to your user’s screen size automatically and instantly.

Now your website will display beautifully on whatever device is being used to browse.

Evolution uses CSS3 media queries to trigger different layout sets at various screen sizes.

This provides a seamless way for the layout to degrade at smaller sizes, as the design can change on the fly without any page loading and without any tricky javascript.

If you want to know what mobile devices are accessing your site, take a peek at your Google Analytics and check out Overview > Mobile > Operating system.

This is a list of mobile devices taken from my Google Analytics for this site…
Apple iPhone, Apple iPad, Apple iPod Touch, HTC Desire, HTC Desire Z, Samsung GT-I9000, Galaxy S, Samsung GT-I9100, Galaxy S II, SonyEricsson LT15i, Xperia Arc, Verizon Droid.

Looks as though more and more of us are browsing with our moble devices… and the numbers are about to really take off.

Scribe SEO – the SEO Expert at your side

scribe SEO software by Copyblogger

Search engine optimization can seem pretty complicated until you realise that it can be broken down into three key elements:

  1. The right keywords – what keywords and keyword phrases are people typing into the search engines and which ones should you be including in your content?
  2. Content that appeals to both people and search engines – you need to write for people, but you need to add a few tweaks that will appeal to the search engines.
  3. Incoming links – incoming links from trusted and relevant sources means that Google, Yahoo and Bing will treat your site as a trusted source and rank you higher.

Scibe is a plugin for WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal that allows you to manage all three key elements from within your dashboard.

Let’s see what Scribe SEO can do for you.
