To get started with website testing and landing page optimization you need something to test. In the old days (2009) we would look for landing pages with a high bounce rate and test those pages.
But that's a very one-dimensional view of the world. External traffic sources land on different pages. And we need a better metric than just bounce rate. Let's also consider conversion rate to help us understand the impact of a landing page. We need a multi-dimension, multi-metric approach.
I created a custom report that shows landing page, conversion rate and, if you're an ecommerce site, transactions and revenue.

You can view the traffic sources for each landing page a couple of ways.
1. Start by adding a secondary dimension of source/medium (or campaign).
2. Look for combinations that have >30% bounce rate and low conversion rate
Or, you can click on the name of a landing page to view the traffic sources for each page. (You can continue to drill deeper and look at referring keywords as well).
Remember, change this report to include your specific conversion events.
