Therefore, the goal of each landing page is not to be a complete website. Instead, the goal is to give those searching quick, relevant content for the subject they were searching. The landing page will then to re-direct them to the church’s main website for more information.

Church Landing Pages and Online Ads
Church landing pages connect with online church ads for optimal effectiveness. The way it works is a church will post an ad built around a specific keyword or church ministry. But, instead of directing those clicking on the ad to the main church website, the ad will direct people to a landing page. Those searching for that specific subject will find the content on the landing page relevant and hopefully head to the church’s main site to find out more.
Google will then increase your church’s Google Quality Score, sending more searching souls to your site. The more site visitors your church receives, the higher the chances those individuals will want to attend on a Sunday for the first time.
