Do you have enough citations on your legal website?
Do you have enough citations? Sounds like an “opposite” question given that most folks don’t want any citations. The citations we speak of however are not issued by the police for speeding, running a traffic sign or having a busted-out taillight. The citations we are referring to are the callouts on the digital web that drive search engines to help prospective customers find you online.
An interesting data point, which should not come as much of a surprise is that when a prospective buyer opens a browser page on his or her smartphone or computer and types in “personal injury attorney near me” they aren’t looking to find a bunch of companies with three last names and the word associates, something has happened and they’re looking to buy.
Citations are a key way to make sure that these folks find you and not the guys down the street. In the World Wide Web, proximity is not just measured in distance, but quality and distance. If your citations are in order this means that your brand has good reviews, that the various social media sites that have your business listed have it listed consistently and accurately without duplications or errors. These are just some of the many factors that will drive this quality and result in your firm showing up higher on the list of search rankings than your competition.
So how do you do this? Is it best to turn on your computer and search for your business online to make sure that you have accurate contact and location data on these sites? The answer here is no way; you’d be doing it non-stop and never have time to be an attorney. How do you get your reviews and postings to get referenced on these other sites? How would you even know if you were doing it correctly?
