Our Approach To Law Firm SEO
Our team starts by taking a deep dive into your website. We’ll also analyze your competition’s websites, in order to identify issues or gaps, opportunities, and threats to your law firm’s visibility. After we perform this audit, we’ll use the results to make continuous, impactful technical updates and recommendations to your website.
We’ll use our second strategy, creative content, to bring in news coverage, backlinks, and exposure to your firm. This builds your brand online and strengthens your reputation.
These strategies help signal to Google that your law firm is trustworthy and stands a cut above your competitors, moving your site up in the organic search results.
SEO for lawyers will help your firm stand out from the crowd. This means more relevant website traffic, increased visibility, and better business for you and your clients.
Set Your Firm Apart
We create high-quality, unique content that attracts real online attention. Google recognizes that as authority and that people trust your website because they visit often.
Through links, social shares, and browser data, Google gets the hint your website is worth looking at. With these signals, alongside solid technical SEO for lawyers, your site will increase in domain authority and rankings. This isn’t an overnight trick, but rather a lasting SEO strategy that will bring you more relevant traffic, leads, and clients, while also improving the overall structure of your brand.
Unlike other SEO firms, we don’t do short term-hacks or use black hat techniques that might work for a few weeks, but ultimately can end up getting your site penalized by Google. Instead, we operate within Google’s guidelines, but at a level that your competition can’t keep up with.

To help you stand out in search results, Go Fish Digital meticulously optimizes the content on your practice area pages, reviewing them from both user and search engine perspectives.
We pay close attention to the structure and quality of your law firm practice area content. We optimize all of the elements of your practice area pages, such as title tags, images, on-page content, internal links and more. We also review your competitors and identify areas of opportunity in terms of adding new content or additional practice area pages.
This holistic approach to optimization enhances your practice area pages’ visibility in search engine results and increases your chances of attracting and retaining potential clients.
Link Building Campaign
Texting and Driving Statistics
A law firm client of ours in Los Angeles wanted the top rankings in Google for high-value DUI keywords. To attract high-quality backlinks that would affect their Google ranking, we executed a number of technical strategies and built content campaigns.
One of these content campaigns was a data compilation around texting and driving statistics. We developed the concept, conducted a custom survey, and pulled out the most eye-catching statistics of this campaign. Bringing attention to this hot-button issue, frequently covered by news sources, proved to be a very successful strategy for this campaign. This helped us land coverage in 20+ news outlets, including nine links with domain authorities over 60.
Before long, this law firm was ranking #1 for DWI and DUI terms in four major cities.
