Difference between homepage and landing page

An example will illustrate this point well. Lets say there is a website that sells furniture. There are hundreds of categories and products on the website. Now lets say you are running an ad campaign for selling sofas online. Your landing page will be sofa category page where there will be different categories of sofas listed for example round sofas, L shaped sofas, foldeable sofas. So you see in this case the home page is different from the landing page. Your ad campaign will redirect users to category page which will be used as a landing page.

But if you are running a campaign for buy furniture online- what should be your landing page ? you guessed it right it should be the home page because the homepage would be the most apt page to redirect the visitor. This is because you do not know the intention of the visitor whether he intends to buy sofas, chairs or cabinets. In this case your homepage is your landing page.

So you see, landing page can be any page that can lead to a conversion. It can be your homepage, your category page, product page any thing that brings your customer one step close to conversion.
