A lot of times, clients hire us to overhaul their entire internet marketing presence, but a lot of times they also need results right away. In a best-case scenario, we can typically launch a website, which includes us writing all new content for the website, in about six weeks. But that’s also the best-case scenario, and depends on the client being completely on the ball and providing us with everything that we need when we need it. And after about 75 clients, that’s happened exactly one time. So knowing this, we’ll often go in and optimize the content on their current website as our first step, which almost always results in an increase in phone calls in cases right off the bat.
Our Keyword Strategy For Law Firms
And what we do is so ridiculously simple that I really can’t believe more people don’t do it. This strategy focuses on the actual content of the website. At its core what we do is:
- We take a keyword, for example, criminal defense attorney
- We look at what words the websites occupying the top 20 rankings on their pages use, and that’s it.
It is basically just looking at what words did they use and let’s get those words on our client’s page. The reason this works is that Google relies on synonyms and close variance to determine the topic of a page. So for example, if you want to rank for a criminal defense attorney, your content needs to have words related to criminal defense attorneys. These words could include arrest, DUI, jail, bail, consultation. Literally, thousands more words that can all be related to criminal defense and attorneys.
The biggest challenge is figuring out which words are the most important. To figure this out, we use a website called textools.net. Here’s how it works:
Entering A Keyword into TextTools.Net
So the first thing you’re going to do is:
- you’re going to go to net. So we’ll click members login.
- And then you’re going to go to semantic analysis
- Then you’re going to click TFIDF.
And basically, what this is, this allows you to analyze which pages are ranking for this specific keyword, and then allows you to figure out which keywords they all have in common. For this example, we’re going to use the keyword, Orange County family law attorney. So this job is going to take a couple seconds here. It usually takes about two or three minutes. At the bottom you see it says, “Your job has been successfully placed in the queue. We’ll send you an email,” blah, blah, blah.
Analyzing the Keywords on Your Website
So what I’m going to do is, I’m just going to find a random website. I guess we did it specifically family law attorney. So just go to page six, and just take a look and see what we can find there. So let’s try this one. All right, so they’ve got a small amount of content on here. So, when your job is finished:
- You’ll come back over to text tools. You’ll go to jobs. You’ll go to completed. And as you can see, Orange County family law attorney is finished here.
- So what you’re going to do is, you’re going to click analysis. Now, what this is actually going to show you is…and this chart may look a little intimidating at first, but it’s actually pretty simple. So what this chart is showing you is, these are the top 20 websites that rank for this keyword. And if you hover over each one of these, you’ll see the color changes. And basically what that’s showing you is, these are the keywords that each one of these websites contains and which ones they don’t. So I want to show you exactly how to use this. So right now it’s showing probably about 1,000 keywords. We don’t need to go that in-depth. I typically get it down to 50, and I can use that to see where I’m at, and then I’ll typically pull out to 100.
- So what we’re interested in is this compare tab right here. So you’re going to click compare. Now while that’s loading, go back to your page.
- Do a Command-A, or a Control-A if you’re on a PC. And then you’re going to copy. And to do that, you can right click and hit copy or you can hit Control-C or Command-C. So now you’re going to come down here. We’re on the compare section.
- You’re going to come down here to the user input and we’re going to paste all this in here. Now this is basically pasting all of the content from that website on here.
- I click analyze my text.
Finding the Right Keywords to Add to Your Website
So now what this is going to do is, this is going to show you keywords that you should add to your website. So the solid orange here is actually the words that are found on this website. And any gaps here, like for instance, right here is the word rights. Right here is the word practice. Here’s experience, client. These are all words that do not appear on the website, in the copy that we pasted in here that you should consider adding. So we’ve got areas, questions, provide, court, separation, site, spousal issues. So obviously, some of these you might have to be a little bit creative to include but, you know, they actually have a lot already incorporated here. So what I would do is, I would go down to 100. And you can see it looks like somebody may have done something similar to this because the top, I don’t know, maybe 20 here seem to be hit. But then as they get down to 100, it seems like they really start missing keywords. So what’s cool about this website is, you can come down here. And this paragraph right here, it says, “Adding some of the following terms might improve the rankings of your text.” This is a list, right here, of words that you can actually add to your website and will increase the rankings.
Adding the Keywords to Your Website
And basically, all it really takes is just adding some content, maybe rewording some things, and then once you actually add that content in there, then you can analyze the text again and see how you’re doing. We’ve seen this strategy alone have some incredible impact. Just by adding these words to the website, it:
- Increases the relevancy of the page
- Increases the rankings
- Makes a really big difference for our clients
So I strongly suggest you do it. Text Tools is not an expensive product. And actually, I believe that there’s a free trial, although I could be wrong. Let’s see. Yeah, it’s not that expensive. As of this video, it’s $27 a month or $37 a month, just depending on which version you get.
A Recap of Our Strategy
So to recap, if you analyze the text of your website and compare it to the websites that are actually ranking for the keywords that you wanna rank for, you’re probably going to find a lot of keywords that you’re actually missing. If you add these keywords to the text on your website, it’s much more likely that Google is going to associate you with those keywords as well, and will likely rank you higher and maybe even on the first page. I’ve seen clients move from page four or five up to page one, simply because we add a lot of these keywords to the content. If you have any questions at all, please shoot me an email. And have a great day.
