    Hello,

    I have a quick question.

    Is it easier to rank in SEO for :

    A landing page which manually updates with an article every 2 days or

    A static sales page?

    In my personal experience, static sales pages have good conversion, but I'm willing to stick with a blog if I can't rank top with a static sales page.

    This is assuming that the keyword density is there, the site is optimized, and all else equal for these two type of sites. (Ceteris paribus for all you econ or science nerds out there :) )

    Thanks in advance, and any help is appreciated!

    From our personal experience, we found doing both works.

    The top half of the page is static/sales - the bottom half has rotating content such as recent blog posts/news etc.

    Code:
    SEOMoz.org
    does a good job of that

    yes do both. fyi reason dynamic pages index well is cause g shows love to new pages eg new sites often get good ranking at first. also have the updating content link to home/sales page to drive the link juice to that page.

    I built a big static page about 2 years ago for one of my companies, it ranked really well at the time, but as it seemed google started placing more emphasis on fresh content, we slid down as a competitors with blogs and CMS started to take over.

    We tacked a WordPress section onto the bottom half of the site, and it has been unbeatable since!
