Law Firm SEO Services: How to Boost Your Legal Marketing Success Rate
What is law firm SEO?
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for law firms is a strategy using specific keywords to attract the most traffic of potential clients to your website, resulting in successful conversions. It is imperative for a legal website to contain thorough content that is well-optimized so Google will direct anyone searching for your practice areas directly to your website.
We consider law firm SEO to be art, with science and technology mixed in too. SEO is the art of understanding how people think. When people are looking for you without knowing your brand, what do they search for?
The science portion of SEO is getting the search engine to value your online presence over your competitors. The science is technical, including reporting, tracking, and testing. The result is organic traffic to your law firm’s website.
