Law Firm SEO & Local Optimization Experts
Search engine optimization, more commonly referred to as SEO, and local optimization are the two building blocks of all websites. These two strategies are crucial to draw in qualified searchers to your law firm, and our law firm marketing company knows how to effectively use them.
There are billions of unique searches performed in the United States every month, the majority of them are to find local businesses. Why is it only a small percentage of organizations put thought into search engine results, or even claim their online business listings for minimal effort? Our law firm SEO experts have years of experience specifically marketing attorneys and law firms in the legal industry.
Making sure your firm is visible in organic search results is critical to remaining competitive in today’s online landscape, and just as much so with local results and Google Maps. With Google and Bing now prominently featuring local results and maps in the majority of search engine result pages, local search is now more important than ever to ensure potential clients are finding your firm. By optimizing the website and keeping local citations correct and consistent, you provide an opportunity for prospects to find and select your firm locally and organically. Our law firm SEO experts also ensure correct information on major social media networks, creating the strongest overall brand view for users and search engines.

Content Tailored for Clients
Someone said years ago that content is king and that holds true today. Good content that is well-researched and professionally written is the key to ranking high in the search engines and giving potential clients what they are looking for. Without outstanding content, your bounce rate will increase because readers will not stay on your site, and your ranking will drop.
On-Site SEO Strategies
There are many on-site strategies you must consider when implementing lawyer SEO techniques, but one of the most important is the usage of keywords. The keywords on your site must match users’ inquiries, and they are highly competitive in the legal field. You must use keywords appropriately, making sure to incorporate them naturally into the content but not include so many that your site is marked as spam.
Links Strengthen Your Site
If you are not adding helpful, authoritative links in your content, your site becomes less useful for readers, which also lowers your search engine ranking. As a lawyer, it is important to link to the appropriate statutes, landmark cases, and other research that can provide the user with even more information. Again, you do not want to add so many links that they become distracting to users, or that take them away from your site for too long. Using links appropriately can make all the difference in your lawyer SEO efforts.
You likely serve clients in many different areas, even if your firm is located in a certain region. Local lawyer SEO is a strategy that incorporates geographical keywords for the areas you practice in. Local SEO has many benefits. Not only does it narrow down the vast online world and bring in clients that are right outside your door, but it will also help clients in areas other than your main location find you.
