SEO services for solicitors

Specific SEO requirements for solicitors

  • Whether it’s business and commercial, property, family or employment law, all solicitors have specialisms. Each specialism needs separate consideration when optimising for search.
  • Legal firms provide services locally or nationally. Local and national SEO requires a different approach.
  • Sometimes the same legal firm will operate locally for one specialism and nationally for another.
  • SEO usually forms part of a wider marketing strategy for legal firms, which may include local or national press advertising, digital advertising and social media. The SEO strategy must fit into this overall marketing strategy.
  • The goal for SEO is typically to generate form-fills or phone calls which can then be converted by the legal firm.
  • Legal firms require the most accurate and professional language to be used whilst at the same time presenting a friendly and approachable tone of voice.

Our approach

  • Step 1: discover your business and legal specialisms

    Through meetings (face-to-face, phone or Skype) we learn about you, your company, it’s history and business goals.

    We gain a thorough understanding of your legal specialisms and where SEO fits into your current marketing activities.

  • Step 2: keyword research

    Based on this deep understanding of your business, we will create a list of keywords that we will optimise your website for.

  • Step 3: delivery

    Once the keyword list is agreed with you, we’ll begin the optimisation process, which could include optimising the existing copy, page structure, technical SEO or developing new pages, articles or sections on your website.

    In rare cases, we may recommend a complete website rebuild.

  • Step 4: monitoring and reporting

    Using specialist software, we test your keywords in search engines every day, and monitor their positions in the search results. Whilst we will remain in constant contact with you at all times, we will also provide a full quarterly report showing progress and making further recommendations.
