What is Law Firm SEO Marketing?
It involves marketing your law firm in the online space with the aim to increase the reach of your business and make it easier for potential clients to find and connect with your company.
However, there is a catch. Unfortunately, you are not the only one who knows the importance of marketing. Your competitors are also using law firm SEO strategies to woo new clients in the same market.
So, what you need to do is find a way to outperform your competitors. And that can only happen with the use of the right SEO for law firm websites.
This case study will take you through the step-by-step procedure we follow to market a law firm so as to generate new clients and bring leads that convert.
Let’s get started.
Our law firm SEO strategy includes both on-page (website optimization) and off-page optimization.
On-site Optimization for Legal Businesses
On-page or on-site optimization/SEO involves optimizing a web page or website from the SEO point of view.
The purpose is to improve the website for various factors, including speed, design, content quality and relevancy, mobile responsiveness, navigation, and meta tags, among others in order to make it more friendly to both users and search engines.
First, we improve/optimize the following aspects of the website.
We optimize/renovate the website design to make it responsive, user-friendly, SEO-friendly, and easy to use and navigate.
For Example, Check this screenshot of one of our Client’s Websites:
This is important to create a lasting impression on the visitors, making them stay longer.
Ideally, the structure/layout of a website should be simple with the homepage connected to all the important inner pages. We optimize it accordingly.
Here is the Screenshot of the Website Structure:
Content (We Use Powerful Words To Grab User Attention)
Content remains one of the most important factors of digital marketing. We improve the existing content on your site and/or add new content which is relevant, highly informative, and rich in keywords, and action-taken words to grab users’ attention.
Have a Look at how we make the call to action lines in Content with Proper optimization of keywords:
For law businesses, we specifically focus on using & promoting the Firm Name and Lawyers’ name Instead of keywords so as to promote your brand.
Contact Details (NAP Optimization)
While optimizing the website, we ensure to add proper and up-to-date information on the NAP (Name, Address, Phone Number) to make it easier for prospects to reach you.
Then, we add (if not already present) the following sections to the various pages of the website.
If there isn’t already a blog on your law firm’s website, we will add one in order to provide you with a better way to communicate with your existing and new customers, sharing news, quotes and updates about the company, case studies, and new offers as well as provide answers to users’ comments.
Law websites must also have a FAQ section, providing answers to all the common questions a potential/existing customer may have about the business or services in general.
Please take a look at how we optimize the faq section for the Law firm:
Faq section is very important to rank keywords and clears the client’s confusion.
We will add a client testimonials/review section or page on your site to offer an easy way for new clients to check the testimonials of your previous clients in the same industry.
A dedicated portfolio page will help your site visitors check your past projects in order to get an idea of your credibility and experience in the law industry.
We believe in showing 100% results with real proof. Please have a look at the conversions (cases) that we generate through our marketing tactics for our clients;
Call to Action
Call-to-action is what makes a prospect take the required action. We will install a proper call to action on all the landing pages of your law site to convert leads into sales.
Here’s a classic example:
“NO FEES UNLESS WE RECOVER YOUR MONEY”
Introduction Video (By Lawyer)
We also get an introduction video made with the lead lawyer (owner) detailing the firm’s services, history, etc., and put it on all pages of the site in order to create better interaction with new prospects.
Here is the screenshot of the Introduction Video:
Team & Lawyer Details
A dedicated team page where the details of individual lawyers/attorneys along with their Experiences, Background, Qualification, Expertise, Practice Areas, Cases won/fought by them, etc. is also created.
Here is the Screenshot of what How Team Looks like on the website:
Complete details of your offices along with the locations, addresses & contact details.
An honest way to make prospect clients contact you. After all, who doesn’t like free services?
An optional chat box to further increase the website’s usability and convert leads into clients.
Here is the screenshot of Live chat support in Law Firm SEO:
We add social links to your website to enable visitors to also connect/follow your business on all the popular social media channels.
We will add an HTML/XML sitemap to the site (or optimize it if already present), making it easier for search engine crawlers to read and index your website pages.
This file is added to tell Google about all the website pages that you want to be indexed and the ones that you don’t want to be indexed.
Individual Pages for Multiple Locations (with practice area)
It is also a good idea, especially for law firms, to add individual pages for different locations if they provide services in multiple locations. This will enable search engines to rank the specific page for a specific location.
Off-page Optimization for Law Firms
Off-page SEO refers to the process of improving the organic rankings of a web page/site in search engines through techniques such as link building, social media promotion, business listing, content marketing, email marketing, etc.
However, in recent times, off-page marketing has become more about increasing the leads/sales/ROI of a website rather than just improving its search rankings.
The Lawyer/Attorney service being a local business needs location-specific marketing strategies such as citations, local business listing, user reviews, social engagement, NAP optimization, etc.
Thankfully, SAG IPL has great experience in the marketing of local businesses, especially in the law niche.
Here are all the techniques we employ for off-page optimization, branding, reputation management, and lead generation for law firms and lawyers.
Local Business Listing (Citation)
Citation is all about listing your law firm in all the local business directories that are relevant to your industry. This is to make it easier for potential customers to find and connect with you.

This includes inserting targeted keywords in the Title and Description, improving the listing category, adding good-quality images, providing valid contact details, and more.
