Editing to shorten the answer some.

Ok, I showed my friend from Google this pic over the Thanksgiving Holiday and this is what he had to say.

Simply put a Landing Page is any pageYou have a visitor first lands on your sitewebsite. It does not matter where they came from or how they arrived The website has 5 pages and the following are the names of the pages. Home, whether organicAbout, PPCServices, shared link or any other methodQuote and Contact.

TheOf these 5 pages, what is considered to be the Starting Pagehome page just like, the Landing Pagemain page can beor the Same Pagestarting page and you will see why.?

This is whereI think we all can agree it gets tricky. Just keep in mind, a Home Page/Main Page are the same and often viewed as the official starting point and is usually entered first, essentially a Starting Pagethe page named "Home Page".

So for instanceWith that just keep in mind, let's say you havethat a 5Main page website, with Home, About, Service, Quote and Contact. Which does a visitor and developer consider the Home/Main Page page, in other words the and a Starting Pagepage? Most of the time the are Home Pagedescribing the exact same thing but using a different name.  

So now, what if you have a large website that has hundreds or more pages. Although thereThere is a Main/Home Page from a designone exception and URL point of view, itthis is not necessarily the official Startwhat makes the term Starting Page different based on visitors behaviour.,

In this case, you can see thousands of visitorsshort, have a LandingStarting Page of Inventory D andis the Inventory Wactual Home Page and also have, a Starting Pagesecondary page ofor a Inventory Dset of pages andnow being Inventory Wconsidered a Home/Main Page.

So what is happening, based on visitors Landing on those pages at high volumes, they are now considered a Main/Home Page*visitors behavior, essentially a *Starting Page**.

 

When I was looking for a Camry this past year, I would enter Toyota on their Camry pages which was my Landing PageIn the green column - The Starting Pages, also Leasing, which also was my Landing You have the number of user sessions for the Home Page so we can say Inventory C was being treated by meand other pages that are viewed/used as a Home Page even on revisits essentially my Starting/ Main Page and Landing. The most visited being the Home Page (as far as sessions and revisitsroot domain name). With many other visitors having followed by the sameother pages named.  

Landing Page patternIn the white column - The Landing Pages, You have the Inventory C pageuser sessions and the pages they first entered the site no matter the source of entry.

So now that we know the Starting Page is considered athe actual or conceptual Home/Main Page a "Starting Page" and how it is the entrance Landing Page for thousands of visitorscan be one page or many pages let's view this sites data.  

This car lot exampleDue to users flow, obviously has enough visitors Landing onit is deemed that the Home Page, Inventory W and D, Car, Specials, are all considered a Home / Main Page and Service. Based on visits pages are now viewed as Home/Main Pages which again is just being called aalso Called Starting Pages.

Keep remembering Starting Pages, are just different names for my Home Pages because users treat them as such.

For this Car Lot, 36k visited the actual Home Page(A Starting Page) and 30k of them did so at entry Home Page = Starting Page and Landing Page.

Of the 5.3k that visited the Inventory D page(Named a Starting Page because it is used like a Home Page), 4.9k of them did so as their Landing Page. (reconfirming its being used like a hypothetical Home Page, Landing Page /Main Starting Page based on visitors usage of the page.  )

In the end.

  • A Home/Main Page - domain root URL ie. Example.com

  • A Landing Page - the page a user enters and first lands on your website.

  • A Starting Page - the actual Home/Main Page or a page used so often as a Home/Main Page, that it is now considered one it is simply called a Starting Page.

To me,I think by this time it makes perfectshould be making sense and you can see how the numbers do add up when all things considered.

It's kind of weird. Anyhow that is what I learned and wanted to share it.

Simply put a Landing Page is any page a visitor first lands on your site. It does not matter where they came from or how they arrived, whether organic, PPC, shared link or any other method.

So what is happening, based on visitors Landing on those pages at high volumes, they are now considered a Main/Home Page*, essentially a *Starting Page**.

You have a website. The website has 5 pages and the following are the names of the pages. Home, About, Services, Quote and Contact.

Of these 5 pages, what is considered to be the home page, the main page or the starting page?

I think we all can agree it is the page named "Home Page".

With that just keep in mind, that a Main page, a Home page and a Starting page are describing the exact same thing but using a different name.

There is one exception and this is what makes the term Starting Page different,

In short, a Starting Page is the actual Home Page, a secondary page or a set of pages now being considered a Home/Main Page, based on visitors behavior.

 

In the green column - The Starting Pages You have the number of user sessions for the Home Page and other pages that are viewed/used as a Home / Main Page. The most visited being the Home Page (root domain name) followed by the other pages named.  

In the white column - The Landing Pages You have the user sessions and the pages they first entered the site no matter the source of entry.

So now that we know the Starting Page is the actual or conceptual Home Page and it can be one page or many pages let's view this sites data.
