In order to provide the utmost in SEO, a firm’s blogs should answer questions a prospective client may have, as well as include the search terms they are using to look for an attorney. Each blog should be well-written – using the “voice” of an attorney – yet easy to understand and not full of so much “legalize” that the reader cannot understand the information being provided.
Demonstrate Experience and Credibility
Each blog post is an opportunity to show a potential client that your firm’s legal team has the knowledge and experience that the client is looking for. Think about the questions and issues that come up when you are working with clients and you’ll have a variety of blog topics that you can publish on your website. For example, a law firm that specializes in family law issues will have clients come to them with questions about the divorce process, how child support works, options for child custody, and more. Writing about each of these topics and publishing on your firm’s website will demonstrate the expertise and skill your firm can offer the person reading them.
Law firms can also write about any changes to state laws, as well as local and national media stories that pertain to the area of law the firm practices. These types of blog posts can demonstrate to a potential client that the firm stays current on all ongoing developments and changes, offering assurances of the type of legal help your firm will provide.
