How Does SEO Help You Grow Your Law Firm?

Over 90% of People Use Online Search to Find a Local Service

At FOUND, we understand that good SEO isn’t just about bolstering your search engine visibility; in many ways, that’s just the beginning. When done properly, SEO should lead to a notable uptick in organic traffic and in qualified leads. And ultimately, those leads should become clients, helping you to sustainably grow your firm and improve your revenue flow.

Local & Organic SEO Visibility Explained

How Search Rankings Affect Your Bottom-Line Revenue

As more potential clients seek qualified law partners on the Web, strategic search engine placement can be incredibly valuable. Ranking well for important search terms can help your law firm get “discovered” among locals who are in the market for a good attorney. And if you have the right website in place to turn those leads into appointments, then your investment in SEO can pay off in the form of long-term, bottom-line growth.

Ranking the Local Map Pack VS Not Ranking the Local Map Pack

Studies show that 42% of all local searches involve clicks on the Google Map Pack. What this means is that, if your law firm can position itself within this rarified online real estate, it will provide a huge edge over your competition. That’s what good lawyer SEO can help you accomplish.

Ranking #1 Overall Organically VS Ranking Page 2

Further studies show that 34% of clicks are on the #1 organic result while the top of page 2 attains about 1%. What this means for your law firm is that getting positioned on the first page of a Google search establishes viability among local search users. Getting pushed to subsequent pages can make you all but invisible.

Don’t Lose Clients to Attorneys with Better SEO!

When a law firm invests in SEO, it can not only gain greater visibility among clients in the area, but it can also establish itself as the law firm of choice within the community. But without a viable lawyer SEO strategy, you’re ceding that position to your competition. Simply put, investing in a thoughtful law firm SEO strategy is essential for building your client base and for facilitating sustainable, long-term growth.

A Tale of Two Legal Practices in Searchville Over 5 Years

In the busy city of Searchville, two personal injury firms set up shop at roughly the same time. Though similar in their services and their breadth of experience, the two practices differed in their initial SEO investment.

Invested in SEO

The first firm hired a reputable SEO company that didn’t make any too-good-to-be-true promises, but instead offered high-quality work to facilitate long-term growth. While the firm didn’t see overnight results, they ultimately cemented their reputation as Searchville’s best and most prominent firm. They continue to dominate the search engine results page and win new clients every single month, all of their growth attributable to SEO.

Not Invested in SEO

Searchville’s second personal injury law firm didn’t make the same heavy investment in SEO, instead opting for a cheap firm that simply completed a couple of checklists without ever mapping out a robust long-term strategy. As such, the firm is now floundering on the second page of Google search results, finding it harder and harder to connect with potential clients. With minimal organic traffic, the firm is missing out on the sustainable, bottom-line results that they might have experienced with the right SEO partner.

Successful SEO Leads to a Future of Sustainable Legal Client Acquisition

Our team operates with a simple premise: Good SEO isn’t merely about search engine rankings, but ultimately about helping your legal practice to grow and to thrive.

Increase Search Visibility

Our approach to law firm SEO will increase your prominence in local search listings, including placement within the Google Map Pack.

Increase Qualified Traffic

Higher visibility means more organic traffic to your website, including traffic from locals who are actively seeking legal representation.

Increase Call, Chat, and Form Leads

As you bring in more qualified leads, you can engage them with phone calls, chat windows, and contact forms, ultimately setting more appointments.

Increase Revenue Attributed to SEO

Our ultimate aim is to help you build your client list and increase your practice revenues, all through the power of robust SEO.

“My Previous SEO Company Didn’t Move the Needle!”

What Makes FOUND Different?

Unfortunately, we hear too many stories of law firms who invest in SEO and then never see substantial results. Frankly, this is because many SEO agencies, especially the bargain-priced ones, hide behind fancy sales presentations, setting unrealistic expectations without offering a clear action plan. But once the sales team passes the baton to the SEO technicians, those expectations are steadily lowered.

We take an entirely different approach. We believe in demystifying SEO, explaining at every step of the way what we’re doing and why we’re doing it. We create substantive campaigns with realistic timelines. And we furnish data and metrics, allowing you to see for yourself how our efforts help you achieve real, sustainable growth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Legal SEO

We’re always happy to answer any questions you have about legal SEO. Here are a few of the most common inquiries we receive.

It’s natural to want fast results, yet at FOUND Web Creative, our highest priority is to lay the foundation for long-term, sustainable growth. We always want to set clear expectations about your timeline, which may be impacted by a range of varied factors.

Your Website and Domain History

A website and domain with some history tend to garner more trust with Google than a newborn site/domain. New sites usually take some time to gather momentum in search visibility, depending on the SEO and content strategy in play.

Your Competitors & Practice Area 

Your timeline also depends on how aggressive your competitors have been with SEO and digital marketing, plus how long they’ve been a player in the market. Your legal specialty can also play a role in how competitive things are on the organic level.

Your Target Market/s

Another critical factor is your geography. Larger markets like Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas tend to be more competitive battlegrounds, making it harder to rank within the Map Pack and page 1 overall compared to more rural areas.

How Much Does SEO Cost for Law Firms and Attorneys?

The legal profession tends to be pretty competitive, and achieving your desired outcomes will require a prolonged, comprehensive strategy. The specific costs of law firm SEO can vary according to your market, and to the degree of aggressiveness you desire.

Do Law Firms Really Need SEO?

Most people use Internet search engines to help find professional services, including qualified lawyers. If search engine results highlight your competitors but fail to showcase your firm, it will likely mean that you lose out on clients and ultimately on revenue opportunities. Law firms can’t afford to leave search engine visibility up to chance.

Do You Offer Market Exclusivity?

Yes we do. FOUND only takes on one client per area of expertise for the primary target market, meaning there is no conflict of interest on our end.
