I am going to explain why and if a squeeze page can rank #1 on the search engines such as Google, Yahoo or Bing. After reading this, you will have the truth as to whether or not the search engines like squeeze pages. Let’s begin…
The short answer is – No! Search engines like squeeze pages as much (or as little) as any other website. That is a fact no matter what the uninformed on the forums will say. I am out here in the trenches earning my full time living doing this stuff – so I track everything.
I have found that search engines often rank squeeze pages pretty quickly. Why? Because they often force the web master to FOCUS their website around one primary theme, or keyword, which ironically makes it far easier for Google, Yahoo and Bing to determine what the site is about – and thus it tends to rank very well!
Weird, I know. But if you look at typical websites that are “all over the map”, this really makes sense. The search engines aren’t out to get you – just the opposite! They need our help to determine where our site fits! The nature of the squeeze page makes you edit yourself carefully and get laser focused, and so I often find squeeze pages rank faster than other websites that don’t have this degree of focus.
For evidence just open your eyes when doing Google searches. Nearly every for-profit website has a squeeze page for their home page OR what I call a “modified squeeze page.” I carefully track my rankings across over three dozen websites that I own – and there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that a squeeze page ranks better or worse than any other website.
Let me give you proof.
This website ranks #1 for the VERY competitive term “squeeze page software” and “squeeze page.” This is my very own site at www.SpeedSqeezePages.com! You can see it is a squeeze page built using my very own Speed Squeeze Pages Software. Take a look:
Here is the Squeeze Page that is ranking #1… it should look familiar (hee hee)
Above I mentioned the “modified squeeze page.” Would you like to see an example of this? I will warn you that this site is too “corporate” for my taste. But I have to give them credit for utilizing the “above the fold” principle on their squeeze page. Check it out:
This is eHarmony. You should go take a look at their modified squeeze page. Same thing that I’m doing, only different market. Hint – Their squeeze page ALSO ranks VERY well.
Here is another racy example from the dating market of a site ranking VERY well in rankings and notice once again the “above the fold” in use:
This is the squeeze page used by Passion.com
The bottom line is that squeeze pages can be seen ranking #1 ion the search engines all over the place. Be careful what you read on the forums – because opinions are the cheapest commodity and everyone has them (even if they haven’t a clue what they are talking about:)
If you think that it is too complicated too build terrific looking Squeeze Pages… well than you must watch my instructional video. You get an “over the shoulder view” of how I built a killer squeeze page in under 3 minutes. To watch it go here and optin…
