Back for another year and opening the door to all-new insights.
How do your conversion rates stack up?
Almost every industry we analyzed saw a higher median conversion rate than last year—but the gap between the top and bottom performers is growing. See if your landing pages have a spot on the podium.
What resonates with your audience?
There were big increases in emotional language on landing pages in 2020, especially for negative feelings like disgust. Find out whether the sentiments on your page are winning visitors over (or scaring them away).
Where are your best visitors coming from?
New for this report, we’ll show you which traffic channels are sending the highest-converting visitors to your page—so you can be sure that you’re spending your ad budget in the right place.

With more specific insights and observations than ever before.
New this year, we also look at the median rates of click-through and form-fill landing pages specifically (so you know precisely how your page stacks up).
Running a sales campaign and sending people through to your online store? Trying to register visitors for a trial or consultation? Use these goal-specific benchmarks to gauge your landing page performance.
Landing page optimization is critical, but it’s over-complicated. Companies will often replace a page without first understanding what was working on the original. Data insights like these help marketers improve their pages at a fundamental level, rather than focusing just on the aesthetics.

Yep—we’ve got data findings from the pandemic, too.
We didn’t want this to become a “COVID-19 impact report.” That’s partly because insights around the pandemic aren’t especially actionable for marketers today, and partly because… well, we’re all just really tired of talking about it.
Of course, we can’t avoid it entirely—but we can quarantine it (so to speak). Take a look at our COVID-specific traffic insights.
Start optimizing your landing pages with conversion intelligence.
Conversion intelligence is all about creating the highest-performing campaigns by augmenting your marketing expertise with data-powered insights that’d be really tough to get on your own. (Heck, we needed to use AI to do it.) The Conversion Benchmark Report simplifies all that data complexity and just tells you what you need to know: How to optimize your landing pages and get more conversions.
Learn all about your industry-specific insights.
Read what’s helping marketers in your industry (or one like yours) convert more visitors on their landing pages. Say you’re in SaaS: We found that words evoking anticipation and joy tend to increase your conversion rates.
Build new pages using what you’ve discovered.
Create a new landing page (or a variant of an existing page) following the insights from this report. Using the SaaS example, you might want to create a page variant that has more positive, value-focused language.
Optimize your results and keep on iterating.
Run an A/B test to validate the impact of your changes or—better yet—use Smart Traffic. With Smart Traffic, you can keep both versions of your SaaS page and automatically send visitors to the one that’s best for them.
