What is a Squeeze Page?
A squeeze page is a landing page similar to the one you will see on this blog. Go to the homepage – www.bloggingtips.com – the page you see is a landing page intended to build a list of potential subscribers. These potential subscribers can become business customers in future through various direct marketing strategies.
Four Major Uses of Squeeze Page
There are four major purposes of creating a landing page:
(1) You want to monetize the website by selling products and services, and you need a leads or subscribers.
(2) You want to connect with readers on a personal level and hence, you want to build a subscriber list.
(3) You want to create business leads.
Typically, a squeeze page will consist of:
(1) A form to capture email id and name of the subsciber;
(2) A policy / privacy statement
(3) Call to action
(4) Highlight the list of benefits on becoming a subscriber
(5) Killer eye catching graphics and content
Squeeze Page and SEO
After the Panda and Penguin updates, Google search engine has become too strict with their penalties. Before these updates, it wouldn’t have mattered if you had only a squeeze page detailing the bare minimum necessities. It would have been highly optimized to rank on search engines.
BUT, today having a squeeze page is not that advantageous if it doesn’t contain relevant content. A domain name that is only a landing page will most probably rank lower and be considered as spam by search engines.
Therefore, online marketers need to create content rich landing pages. For instance, you can create a blog along with it, like we have on Blogging Tips or develop linear sales pages with squeeze pages.
Lastly, don’t forget the privacy statement because you need to convince the subscribers that their details would not be misused ever.
