Are Your Law Firm’s SEO Services Really Working?

Are you getting the leads you want? If not, your law firm’s SEO services may not be working. As the author of a web marketing textbook and a legal marketing book with 26 years’ SEO experience, I am uniquely qualified to help law firms get consistent website leads.


Timid Legal Marketing and Lukewarm SEO Is Costing You Money

According to Zero Limit Web, the first five search results in Google receive 67.6% of clicks user clicks. The remaining five just receive 3.73%. You can imagine how many search results on the second page get clicks.  

If you’re not putting in enough effort to make it to the top of the digital mountain, you might think there’s no such thing as a beautiful view.

When it comes to ranking a website, Google only trusts industry authorities and consistent content creators. If your firm isn’t positioning your attorneys as thought leaders through content publication and user education, your website is unlikely to make it to the first page of relevant search engine results

Potential clients who do make it to your website also won’t take the next step if your site content is thin, boring, and fails to answer their questions or empathize with their needs.

That is equally true whether leads come from a referral or via search engine or social media marketing.

Imagine if you answered all the questions your potential clients have. How much more in-depth content would you have and how many more web visitors could you be converting to clients? I can help you get quality new visitors and prospective clients through better messaging, deeper content, and proven SEO strategies.

Work with me directly and become a digital success story. I believe you should enjoy your digital marketing experience, so forget about long-term contracts. You can also cancel anytime. My goal is to offer you flexible SEO and legal marketing expertise that fits your budget and individual needs.

Effective Legal Marketing Is Not the Job of One Internal Staff Member

Effective digital marketing for lawyers is not a one-person job. It’s difficult for law firms to find marketing professionals who have both technical website and advanced SEO experience and how to explain your firm’s value proposition with great headlines, website content and social media posts.

That’s why law firms hire me.

There’s no official role for someone who is an expert on increasing the search positioning of your website, enhancing your core message, SEO and social media marketing for lawyers, and PPC ads.

That’s why I spend 100% of my working time developing these critical marketing skills, so I can help law firms fulfill need that very few people are trained well enough to fill.

I can help your law firm rank higher and provide more engaging content to drive leads, so you don’t have to learn by trial and error and years of missed opportunities.

Here’s my secret to helping my law firm clients get great SEO and legal marketing results:

Are You Ready to See Results from Your Legal Marketing Strategies?

Here are some of the kind messages I get from law firm clients and event attendees:

“Hi John,

Your webinar today was absolutely superb. I sign up for numerous webinars but they rarely hold my attention for more than a few minutes.

It’s not that I have an attention problem; it’s that most webinars are marginal.

Yours was not. It was packed with excellent direction, insight, resources, and language to use when defending website prerogatives!

You should really offer your seminar to the LMA regional or national conferences.

You could even offer an in-person workshop. I would pay to attend it.

Really great stuff.

Thank you,”

My Law Firm Marketing Testimonials

“Picture a blind man (me) being guided (by you) through a (Google) minefield. Everything you (and the “McDougall Team”) have done for me and my website is more than I ever could have imagined. I’m trying not to sound “unprofessional,” but it’s wonderful! Again, thank you!”

John F. Murphy, Esq. – The Whistleblower Lawyer

“I learned more today about web-based marketing than I have in the last 10-12 years. As you will come to learn, I’m not too sentimental, nor am I shy or humble about my abilities. I’ve often struggled with the fact that I’m one of the very best trial lawyers around (both DUI Defense & PI), but my internet presence was either stuck or becoming just another face in the ever-growing crowd.

I’m actually inspired. It feels like some very dynamic, strong, smart people “have my back” on the web, while I wail away in court day after day. The reduction in my stress level from a business/practice perspective can’t be overstated. I can’t wait to kick butt on the web and bring my firm to the next level. Thanks again for all you are doing.”

Attorney Michael Bowser, P.C.

How Many People in the U.S. Search Google for Lawyers Every Month?

The number of people who search for various legal terms every month to find an attorney is a key metric in your marketing strategy. Here’s the most recent data on how many people in America are using Google to search for a lawyer each month:

Immigration Lawyer74,000
Personal Injury Lawyer33,100
Bankruptcy Lawyer27,100
Car Accident Lawyer22,200
Disability Lawyers22,200
Real Estate Lawyer18,100

Remember That the Top 3 Google Search Results Get About 75% of All Clicks!

This means that without advanced law firm SEO that accounts for these ranking factors, your law firm is mostly invisible.

I have done SEO for small law firms, business law firms, multiple personal injury firms, and for publications like the National Law Review.

In my experience, even small firms who got a late start can keep up with the competition if they have the right law firm marketing and SEO strategy.

There’s a Catch — I Don’t Work with Just Any Law Firm

You’re done with big SEO agencies that have confining platforms or who hand you off to junior staff
