Optimizing an attorney website for search engines is a critical part of any law firm’s marketing strategy in this digital age. We know every firm is unique. Consultwebs does not employ a one-size-fits all strategy to our campaigns. Instead, we tailor every campaign we manage to the each firm’s needs, goals, market and brand.
Gone are the days when marketers broadly targeted audiences based on common denominators such as time slots and subscribership. Advertisers today can hone in on prospects with a level of precision that makes Mad Men look like amateurs. Aided by technology, advertising is now done in real time.
But while the rise of the Internet, Google, and screen culture have laid the groundwork for this marketing revolution, the engine that makes it run is still people. Consultwebs recognizes this and emphasizes talent working seamlessly with technology to develop strategy and provide unprecedented legal marketing results.

Asking 100 search engine marketing professionals, “What is SEO?” might very well produce 100 slightly-different answers. This speaks to the nuance and ever-changing landscape of the industry.
Non-SEOs generally understand that search engine optimization is the science of getting webpages to appear at the top of search engine result pages for particular search terms. But attorney SEO is an art as much as it is a science, and expert practitioners must have creative as well as technical skills. SEO is one of the ways to feed the top of a law firm’s client funnel to get more visitors, more leads, and more cases from the web.
Despite what less-scrupulous online marketing companies might tell you, there are no “hacks” or shortcuts to creating pages and sites that obtain a high ranking and hold onto it. Consultwebs knows that success online takes strategic planning, creativity, high-quality content and lots of hard work.
Search engine optimization is not merely a technical process, but ensuring the technical health of a site is part and parcel of successful SEO.
The workings of SEO are, admittedly, a bit nebulous to non-experts. Hiring a company to manage your website can feel a bit like taking your car to the mechanic in that you must trust his or her expertise and hope for the best.
While our results and client satisfaction speak for themselves, Consultwebs would like to take you under the hood, as it were, and explain a little bit about how we perform technical (“on-site”) optimization.
Content, links, mobile-friendliness, titles, pages speed, and the many other on-site SEO aspects that are quality-checked by Consultwebs for our clients share one central theme: the user.
You know them as clients and potential clients. They’re the people who visit your site in hopes of finding legal help for their situations. How well our marketing campaigns work for clients ultimately depends on the quality of the user experience. In short, users need to find helpful information, delivered to them in an easy fashion, and optimized for the devices that they are using.
Our team of consultants and content experts is dedicated to law firm marketing. We work exclusively with lawyers and law firms, giving us unique insights into what works — and just as importantly, what doesn’t work — in online law firm marketing. Our guiding principle is that technical SEO should never trump user experience. We believe that clients and prospects are the most important factor in any decision, and work to ensure they find our client’s websites, so that they can get the help that they need.
When properly managed, a law firm’s website and SEO campaign can be one of it’s largest sources of new leads and cases, and can bring an excellent ROI to the firm. An SEO campaign that isn’t properly managed can be a constant source of work, frustration and stress, not to mention the wasted expense. Firms that have successful SEO campaigns get:
Offering an exceptional user experience for a client’s web users, is crucial, but other aspects of our consulting work are also important. In addition to producing beautiful websites with great, engaging content, we also work on the more technical aspects of law firm website optimization, such as back link profiles, keywords, click-through-rate, and titles, tags, meta descriptions and “off-site” metrics.
Consultwebs employs a holistic approach to marketing that focuses on utilizing experts to build your law firm’s brand. Recognized brands are more trusted and therefore more likely to attract and retain clients.
