    You should start with on-site SEO. If you have a WordPress website, you can easily install Yoast SEO plugin. If you have a traditional website, you will need to learn a little about how to use your keywords in the source code.

    The second step will be off-site SEO. The most important part of the off-site SEO is achieving that others link to your website.

    As a lawyer you can take advantage of content marketing. In my opinion, the content marketing should work very well for you. Why?

    If I write an article about how to choose a web hosting company I will compete with thousands of similar articles. Many people write about that. But not everyone can write about the legal stuff. So write some good articles and you will see they will naturally attract backlinks. Every link to your website is like a vote - thanks to these "votes" you will achieve higher Google rankings.

    Tip: Choose some actual topic. It is new so there is low competition and a lot of people searches for it. For example, something like GDPR.

    First seeing you are a lawyer, I would consider talking to a few SEO company's in your area. Take a look at and see learn what google wants. The Offline section has some great topics on local marketing - Some will discuss SEO.

    Finally you can read the seo section on the forum- Be careful a lot of stuff in there is dated and can get your site penalized. Good luck, and also ignore any poster offering you a service here.

      A good lawyer makes how much an hour? How many hours should he spend throwing money away reading these blogs?

      Think about it.

    Getting quality backlinks is still the backbone of any effective SEO strategy. However, Google is very clever at weeding out irrelevant/spammy backlinks now, so avoid using auto-link genrators such as SeNuke or GSA Ser - especially directly to your money site.

    You need to get high authority contextual backlinks. If you can't find sites relevant to your niche, then make sure the articles have some relevancy.

    A good way to do this is look for guest posting opportunities - reach out to bloggers and high quality editorial sites and ask to submit content. They will often let you publish your link inside a value giving article.

    You can also try writing linkbait articles. This is another form of content marketing, whereby you publish quality articles on your site that invites other high authority websites to link to. Linkbait articles can also be picked up by social media and go viral, generating hundreds of natural links from quality, contextually relevant, website across the internet.

    With all that said, these strategies rely on content marketing - either your providing quality content to other websites with your link, or your publishing articles on your own site for others to link to. So i would make it my business to read up on writing and researching quality articles (see what others are producing in your niche, for example).

    You can then use these Tier 1 links to build Tier 2 and Tier 2 links, to give them more "juice" - for example. Web 2.0 properties or comments/forum posts that link to your Tier 1 high authority guest post links.

    Finally, remember social signals are increasingly important these days. So make sure your site has a facebook,twitter,instagram etc., presecence, and generate likes and shares. This won't be very effective unless you have the quality backlinks in place in the first place, so get your content marketing right and take it from there.

    Hope this helps
    I sell backlinks on some of the most lucrative editorial websites in the world.

    There are many ways to improve SEO for a website. Few of them are following:

    CONTENT: FIRST MOST IMPORTANT THING you can have on your site, IS CONTENT!!!! Once you have generated content, if you have not already, you should sync your website with Google Analytics and Webmaster tools. These tools are free and allow you to see what terms visitors are using to find your site and which ones produce the most visitors.

    Research for terms: You may be missing and/or never even thought about. To do this, you can use a service like Google Adwords. Without setting up any paid adds you can research how keywords perform and also get an idea of the level of competition there are for certain terms.

    After you have gathered a new list of terms from your searching, now re-analyze your site and see where you may be able to add these terms. Should you replace how you describe your service to target terms that convert better? Do you need to add any new pages of the site that talks about a new term or phrase you have found?

    So as I said, it takes a lot of time and research to be successful with SEO.

    I wish everyone the best of luck and I'll be happy to assist if anyone finds they need help.

    Well that is very good if you want to rank but this is true also without any consultant your blog or website never get good visitors. you are a good lawyer but maybe you'll no good seo expert. I suggest you hire someone who can help to improve the traffic of your website.

    Here Many guys helping but maybe you fix some basic errors but in 2018 the Trend is Technical Seo.
    and in Technical SEO many Factors matter. In Traditional days if you did see 100% sure you can get huge traffic but in 2018 with traditional SEO not possible.

    Yes, you can do one thing you can deliver high-quality content. You can use your Expertise to creating high-quality Content. Your content should be User Engaging. Google Likes UX. Many people including me care Keywords but if your content Engaging then don't care Keywords. Google is very Smart. So focus on Generate high-quality content.

    My recommendations :

    Your blog should be Mobile Friendly. A trend is google index first its confirm

    Make sure your blog in https version

    Internal linking 100% correct and Relevant

    Load time must be less than 3 or 4 sec

    Focus on CTR / Dwell time

    Care alt tags and headings, include your main keyword in H1

    URL Structure Must be Clean and avoid to 404 errors

    Off Page :

    Law-related forum join
    Law-related guest post but before get guest post please analysis in seo tools (ahrefs, Majetic, semrush)

    The blog should be real and with good traffic

    Write Ebook and Submit in Ebook sites

    do some to rank your youtube videos ( in Youtube video ranking you can do some spam lolz )

    Try to Contribute some Law blogs, Share your tips and show your Expertise there.

    Active in Social Media Groups Related to your Niche and Invite someone to Interview ( I mean to say Well Know person in law )

    Join Quora and other Q & A websites

    Well first keep posting content on your website. I think as a lawyer you don't have much time to perform SEO on your website properly. Better to learn some basic SEO tips and implement them on your website accordingly. Content is your key in SEO. Keep posting fresh content without copying anywhere. Try to provide information that your audience want to know or searching mostly on Google.

    I'd focus on the basics Michael.

    Write content helpful for lawyers. Focus heavily on this strategy because helpful content fuels a successful SEO and search campaign.

    From there, build friendships with bloggers in your niche through genuine blog commenting and by promoting them on your blog and through social media. These friendships eventually lead to mentions on other blogs and guest post opportunities, which improve your SEO juice, via mentions on other sites.

    You might want to look into influencer marketing. You can reach larger audience based on the audience reach of the influencer you will be working with. Only issue with this is that there are lots of fake influencers, so you will need to do some research on this one.

    So I read through this thread... I can tell not many, if any of the people responding have ever done SEO for an Attorney / Lawyer.

    With a VERY rare exception ( and by rare I can really only think of a Plastic Surgeon that actually used content to his advantage ) is Content going to be a winning strategy for this type of person / client.

    The business of an Attorney, a Plumber, an Electrician, a Chiropractor, etc etc is going to be local based. In such that SEO efforts should follow suit ( Forms follows Function ) Google Maps, Google my business, Citations - Citations - Citations, Reviews, and of course backlinks would be the proper methods to be using. NONE of which has anything to do with content.

    The only focus on content that should be taking place here is reducing the friction for a lead conversion... selling the end user to pick up the phone and call, or fill out a form. Content should be positioning authority. Should be increasing Trust, and again creating the conversion to making contact.

    As pointed out by @OptedIn the OP has not been around.. so this post is not directed at him per se, but for those of you reading that are looking for answers.. and finding this thread filled with absolute garbage for suggestions.. I felt the need to set the record a bit straight.

    May this thread also be an example of WHY good quality SEO services cost what they cost... there is a HUGE difference in supplying SEO services, and actually supplying SEO services that will work with the specific industry / niche at hand.
