For every attorney in America, it is likely his or her firm's credentials, areas practiced, and contact information is available online—whether through legal directories or most likely, personal websites.

Having a customized website is an important first step to increase the visibility of your firm by advertising who you are, and what you do.

However, having a website, even one that is professionally done and looks state-of-the-art, doesn't mean that it is going to be found. In fact, there are many websites out there (e.g. your competition) with very simple websites that could be running circles around yours when it comes to online visibility.

The most important means to increase your website’s presence is to make sure that it appears or “ranks” on popular search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing. The best way to go about this is to get the help of an online marketing company that understands the dynamics behind SEO, or Search Engine Optimization.

In short, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) works by maintaining fresh, optimized, relevant content with proper keyword density to establish your online popularity, and generate targeted traffic to your website. SEO also works in conjunction with social media development, such as online videos and pay-per-click campaigns on radio and television ads to maximize your exposure, and reach multiple markets at the same time.

Search engines can’t read pictures; they read words. So, no matter how many flashy graphics are on your website, or audio overlays, if your site's content is not optimized in the proper way, it simply won't be found—regardless of the hours and money spent developing it.

LawInfo has been an Internet marketing leader for over 15 years, and understands SEO strategies and tactics inside and out. The Internet is constantly changing, and we are innovating right along with it. Our optimization management practices will make the Web work harder for you—by increasing your website's visibility to draw clients to your practice, and ultimately build your business.

Remember: a website's primary function is an advertisement, and prime online real estate is limited. A website that is built out and not strategically managed may as well be a billboard in the desert. Who is going to find it?

The effectiveness of your website all depends on how many potential clients actually see it. LawInfo can help move your website from a dusty back road onto a super highway! Call us today, and let us show you how we can help: 800-397-3743.
