    I'm Not an English native Speaker. So In this BlackHat World (or we could say Universe) with all of this specific terminology/glosary ends confusing me a bit... I've been reading for some time and saw people refering to "Landing Pages" and "Money Sites".... And they are different terms for the same thing ? Or are separate things ?

    I know that the Landing Page is the one where you put your "Call to action". Or Where you drive/Focus the user to your ads... But I can't figure out the difference between Landing page / Money Site, could someone explain me ?

    They can mean the same thing but don't have to. A landing page is a page designed to capture people email addresses or make sales. A Money Site is usually used in an SEO context and just means the mains ite that they are trying to promote.

    A money site is the site where you make money, usually referred to as such to set it apart from your quality and/or spam websites that point to your money site (which usually are not monetized). Money sites sit as a focal point of all your SEO backlink endeavors. A landing page is a page that is optimized to convert an offer. It may or may not be SEO optimized, if the goal is to drive traffic via SEO it will be optimized, if the goal is to promote it via PPC then it usually won't be optimized for SEO, if the goal is to promote it via social then it wouldn't be optimized. They are virtually the same thing, with "money site" being used typically in a SEO sense and "landing page" typically being used in an offer-conversion sense.

    A landing page is any web page that a visitor can arrive at or "land" on. And a money site is a place you core focused for making money. It can be a site with AdSense ads, an amazon affiliate site, a clickbank review + affiliate site, your product sales page etc. Any site that can generate income in any form is a money site.

    you are supposed to have several or a few landing pages on a money site.Since google will penalize a website for thin content if it only has few landing pages so people tend to add filler content or content to target LSi keywords .
