SEO for Law Firms & Attorneys
Your ideal clients are online searching for the legal services you provide, but if they don’t see your law firm among the leading results, they’re going to settle for one of your competitors. Fortunately, with search engine optimization, your website can climb the ranks and show up front and center among the search engine results, generating more traffic to your website, not your competition.
Because of the volume of attorneys, climbing the ranks requires a proven strategy in order to make an impact. Founded in 2004, TheeDigital has been at the forefront of SEO for law firms, and we know how to rise to the task to overcome low rankings. Our marketing team blends content marketing, technical optimization, and off-site methods into a strategy that increases your visibility.

Before we start optimizing your website, our marketing strategists meet with you to learn about your law firm and your goals to determine the best strategy for your practice.

We’ll look at your current traffic to see what is working and what we can improve on. This includes in-depth keyword research to see which keywords would be most beneficial for your practice
As part of our strategy, we’ll perform in-depth competitor research to see what your competition is ranking for. We’ll use this information to devise a strategy to outrank them.
With on-page, or on-site, optimization, we use your keywords to create content like service pages, lawyer bios, and blog posts. Our content writers use extensive research to create content that ranks and converts.
With off-page SEO activities like link building, social media marketing, and local citations, we build your online presence and further improve your rankings.
In addition to your real-time reporting dashboard, which you can check at any time, you’ll receive a monthly report from your marketing strategist. This report details your traffic, leads, conversions, and the goals achieved over the past month. This lets you know how your website is performing and allows you to see your growth month over month. This report also allows us to see areas to improve and make recommendations to tweak your site’s strategy so you’re always seeing results.
Benefits of SEO for Law Firms
Local Law Firm SEO Builds Your Law Firm
Your law firm is serving a specific geographic area, but if your website isn’t optimized locally, you don’t just lose out among the list of search engine results, you lose on Google Maps as well.
The three leading local results in a search for law firms in an area are highlighted in a “3-Pack” list with map targeting and added details, giving those law firms an extraordinary advantage. Our marketing team is dedicated to getting your law firm the advantage, so we include location information and details throughout your website to leverage local SEO.
