When someone needs legal services, the first place they turn is a search engine like Google. Since 90% of people won’t go past the first page of search results, your law firm needs to rank near the top. How you get there is with search engine optimization (SEO).

How Attorney SEO Marketing Works to Grow Your Law Firm

Each month, consumers in the U.S. perform more than 2.9 million online searches for legal services. About 90% of them will choose a lawyer whose website is on the first page of Google (or Bing, or Yahoo).

If you want to outrank your competitors in search engines, you need to accomplish three things: First, your website code needs to be easy for search engines to find, read, index, and rank. Second, your onsite content (copy/text) must establish your company as an authority in the legal industry. And third, your offsite factors (ex. links from other authoritative sites) must be optimized to reinforce your site’s authority.

To accomplish that, our SEO specialists focus on:

Blue Corona specializes in law firm marketing and has a formula to measurably improve the ranking signals above. The end result, for many of our law firm clients, is an exponential increase in website traffic, leads, and sales!

Our Lawyer SEO Process in More Detail

Step 1: Comprehensive Website Tracking & SEO Audit

The best SEO services for attorneys start by diving into your data. You can’t maximize what you don’t (accurately) measure. Accurate tracking is the foundation of every lawyer internet marketing service Blue Corona provides. We market our clients’ businesses as if we owned them ourselves. In order to provide you with intelligent decisions about your advertising, marketing, SEO, and website, we must first review your marketing the same way a great accountant would evaluate your financials.

Most attorney SEO companies brag about rankings and traffic. Guess what? Neither of these metrics matters if you’re not seeing increases in profit, revenue, and clients from organic searches (for terms other than your firm’s or partners’ names!).

SEO is a zero-sum game which means that in order for your website to move higher up in the organic search results, you must leapfrog websites that are currently perceived to be better optimized than your site. One of the most common questions business owners ask us is, “how much SEO do I need?” You can’t (intelligently) answer this question without first doing a thorough analysis of the other lawyer websites and firms in your area.

A typical lawyer SEO audit includes:

  • A business intake so that our account managers see your business from an owner’s perspective
  • Analytics and SEO software implementation (we use a set of tools no other SEO company has)
  • Keyword research and identification
  • Competitor analysis
  • Analysis and evaluation of your website code, structure, and content
  • Analysis and evaluation of your company’s presence online—linkscape, social media, and more

The output of our SEO audit process is an overview report and SEO strategy, which our team will present to you (allowing time for extensive Q&A).

Step 2: Foundational Improvements to Your Law Firm’s Website

Armed with the data derived from the SEO audit process, the second step in our lawyer SEO process is to make any foundational improvements required to facilitate your ongoing SEO success. For example, to rank well on Google you need well-optimized onsite content; however, if your website is not coded and structured correctly, the search engines will never see the great content you create. If code and site structure issues are identified during the SEO audit process, you must be fixed before any content optimizations occur.

Although every situation is unique, typical foundational improvements include things like revising your website’s title and meta tags, renaming various web pages, giving your website files a more logical structure, improving your website speed (load speed is a known ranking factor), enhancing your local SEO by creating more geographically relevant content, and even recoding your website onto a content management system (CMS).

Step 3: Content Creation and Lawyer Marketing Strategy Execution

With the right foundation in place, and armed right keywords, the next step in the SEO process is to update the content on your website and, when necessary, create new website pages. Contrary to what you might think, Google doesn’t rank websites—it ranks web PAGES. Each page of content on your site gives you an opportunity to rank for a specific set of relevant keywords.

It might be helpful to think of your website as if it were a fishing boat—each page of content is like a baited line thrown into the Internet sea of fish. More lines in the water (pages on your website) equals more fish (visits, leads and new cases!)! The content of your website must be targeted to your top keywords, but it also must establish your firm as THE authority for what you do in markets you do it (whether that’s elder, family, divorce, or another specialty law category).

Most lawyers hate creating website copy! That’s okay—Blue Corona has professional copywriters (in-house, U.S.-based employees that work directly for Blue Corona) that specialize in creating unique, original, relevant and authoritative content specifically for the legal industry. 

Step 4: Optimization of Off-Site Attorney SEO Factors

The final step in the SEO process is to optimize your overall footprint on the web. Think of links from other authoritative websites (directory pages, local chambers of commerce or the BBB) as votes of authority or digital recommendations. More links from high-authority sites equal more search engine visibility; however, you must recognize that not all links are created equal!

Buying links with the intent to manipulate Google’s ranking algorithms is forbidden and doing so can get your website banned from the search rankings. The right way to attract links to your website is to earn them by creating unique and remarkable content—content that is truly valuable to your prospective customers!

Top Company SEO FAQs

What is SEO?

SEO is the process of editing and creating website content and code that ranks well on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. First, your website must be coded so search engines can find and crawl it. Your website also needs to be fast, secure, and mobile friendly. Second, you need web page after web page of unique, remarkable, and optimized content. Third, you must gain citations, links, and references from other relevant and authoritative websites.

What’s included in SEO services?

In all SEO packages, we include:

    1. A digital competitive analysis
    2. Website content and code optimization
    3. New website content and creatives
    4. Local citation optimization (local SEO)
    5. Measurement and analytics reporting
    6. Continual tracking and tweaking of your campaign

Should I hire an SEO company?

An SEO company handles the day-to-day tasks of monitoring your online presence so you can focus on other aspects of your business. If you don’t have the time or resources to comb through pages upon pages of analytical data, rankings, and traffic patterns and then have the means to optimize accordingly, you need an SEO company.

How much do SEO services cost?

Blue Corona’s SEO process starts with a website audit – an ongoing SEO campaign may or may not follow (ongoing SEO occurs approximately 85% of the time). Website audits are customized for individual businesses, so the prices vary, but the typical range is $2,500 – $3,500 (audits for larger “enterprise” websites can be considerably more). Ongoing SEO ranges from consulting to “do it for me” SEO services where Blue Corona’s team acts like your own in-house SEO department (for a fraction of the cost of having your own SEO team). Ongoing SEO ranges from $2,000 per month on the low end to $10,000 (or more) per month on the high end. What should really matter is your return on marketing investment (ROMI). Sure, $5,000 per month may sound like a big investment for a local business, but if your ROMI turns into $50,000 per month, it’s worth the investment. A word of caution: you get what you pay for. If you sign up with a cheap SEO company that offers low monthly payments and includes a “free” website, you may be leasing a space on their proprietary platform, meaning you lose your website and all your work once you leave. Avoid outsourced or second-language SEO work.

How long does SEO take?

If you’ve got a good SEO partner, you can generally see results between 3-6 months, but certain industries with highly competitive keywords can take up to a year to see traction. Don’t give up, though—once you get going, your results will snowball.

How does Blue Corona track SEO success?

If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. You can’t win the game if you don’t know the score. Despite a million quotes which suggest that you can’t maximize your business success unless you track your results, most business owners and marketers are still not accurately tracking their advertising, marketing, website, or SEO. Most online marketing companies treat tracking and reporting as an afterthought—the last step. At Blue Corona, it’s the first step in every SEO engagement.

Is Blue Corona a certified Google Partner?

Yes.
