Conversion Science: New Column From Search Engine Land

Our newest Search Engine Land column, Conversion Science, launches today. Conversion Science focuses on that all important aspect of search marketing, persuading users to take action. Columnists write about ad and landing page testing and tuning, techniques for moving searchers through the conversion funnel, and more. The Conversion Science column appears weekly at Search Engine Land.

In today’s debut article, Scott Brinker takes on the notion that landing page testing and tuning is really more science than art and shows why marketers have a far greater advantage in this arena than you might realize at first. Read on in Conversion Science As A Creative Mission.
