Local SEO

Local SEO for Solicitors and Law Firms

What is Local SEO?

A local SEO campaign aims to achieve and retain high search engine visibility for your business and service areas which are relevant to your local audience. It focuses on local map pack rankings as well as organic SERP results with local modifiers. This drives highly relevant, localised traffic to the appropriate pages of your website.

Local SEO for solicitors works in a similar way as national SEO yet concentrates the majority of efforts on the geographical areas of your service.  

Why do Local SEO for your law firm?

Someone seeking professional legal advice in Wales wouldn’t necessarily want to enquire with a firm in London.  A local firm with a familiar location and a welcoming brand will make that enquiry a lot more likely to happen, therefore giving a higher rate of conversions.

Our local SEO services for solicitors and law firms concentrate on three core aspects: -

  1. Service Page & Content silos – We ensure that the service pages of your website are well-optimised and when needed we also create hyper-localised versions of pages to give you an edge over your competitors. 
  2. Google Business Profile – Making sure that you have a Google Business Profile and that it is optimised correctly is essential for showing up in the “map pack” of the organic search results. This is the list of three local businesses that appear at the top of local search results. 
  3. Citations and NAP – NAP stands for name, address, and phone number.  These need to be consistent everywhere they appear on the internet.

Our Local SEO package will help your firm to be found for the services that you offer in the city, town or area that your office(s) are based in. This drives highly relevant, localised traffic to your appropriate pages.

The six-stage SEO cycle

1. Research and analysis
2. Keyword & landing page opportunities 3. Onsite analysis and amendments
4. Content analysis and set up
5. Marketing and link acquisition
6. Tracking and reporting
