May seem like a stupid question, but I'm trying to learn

    One thing I've wondered about on page SEO is, some pages like landing pages with hardly any text on them are only optimized in the title, description, tags etc

    But other sites have pages that are optimized in the articles as well as the meta data.

    I'm just kind of confused. If landing pages that are only optimized in the meta data can rank in search engines, why do sites with articles need the articles/content optimized for keywords as opposed to just in the meta data?

    May seem like a naive sort of question, but you've got to start somewhere..

    Maybe those landing pages have better backlinks?

    I would say that optimized meta data is largely all you need to rank (disregarding links). However, in a large article, more relevancy/optimisation certainly helps and would actually make sense as you would naturally expect it to have more words related to what the piece is about, right?

    Those case you telling because they might have concentrate in, off page optimization.

    Articles & content optimized for keywords will decrease your bounce rate. It will give you traffic & rank .

    there are too many reason for rank those site which is only optimized meta. they rank because his design is unique and responsive, also have great page authority and trusted and high da inbound link. it is not about if you add good content and good optimize your meta with content and you achieve high rank no it is not possible. recently one of google's webmaster says there are 200+ factor we check for better ranking of any site.

    With Google these days, it's all about authority. Good content is still very important for highly competitive keywords, but domains with high authority can rank for any random keywords.
