Finding the Issues

At first, we conducted a manual in-depth site audit and then reconfirmed the missing SEO factors using Ahrefs and Google Search Console audit tools. Once finishing the audit, these were our main findings-

Finding the Issues
  • Poor content strategy,
  • No Consultation Page.
  • Multiple 404 errors,
  • A missing XML sitemap,
  • Lack of proper backlinks,
  • Lack of Local Citation

Before getting into the main point at first, let’s see what repercussions a site will face with the above issues.

Having a poor content strategy is bad for your website, especially when it comes to law firms. Though Mark Anthony’s law firm had enough content, they could not provide proper information about the law practice areas and services. They weren’t optimized accurately with EAT and even didn’t use any CTA.  

Every law firm website should optimize its consultation page so that clients can provide all the required information related to their issues. Here, this essential page was also missing on this site, and users didn’t find a proper way to discuss their cases or issues.

The next one is 404 errors. Now, you may be wondering, does 404 really affect page ranking? Let me clarify one thing; you are actually wasting Google Bots’ time trying to crawl these invalid URLs by not removing them.

Also, when your visitor clicks through a page to see something informative and lands on a 404 error page, they get frustrated. This is exactly what happened with Mark Anthony’s law firm site. The UX of this site was badly affected due to having several broken pages. 

Now, come to the next issue, which is a missing XML sitemap. Actually, XML sitemaps instruct Google to crawl and index your site’s important pages. In order to rank top, all the essential content of your site needs to be discoverable by Google. But, in our client’s case, Google found it hard to crawl and index the pages due to the missing XML sitemap.

Again, in the case of Mark Anthony Law firm, some of the backlinks didn’t come from authoritative sites, and some links were broken as well. As a result, these things were hampering the site’s authority. Lastly, this site wasn’t cited locally; as a result, they missed a huge opportunity to reach the local potential traffic.

So, these were the major SEO factors that were missing in Mark Anthony Law firm’s website. These were the missing factors, which made this site face a drop in ranking and optimal traffic.

Our Approach

Once getting a clear idea about what we were dealing with, we had broken down our strategy into the following actions.

our results of Law Firm

1. Optimized the Content Structure

So, our first step was, categorizing its service page. We had separated the practice areas and included all the services under these practices. Also, we made sure to break out all of them onto their own pages. Here’s what we came up with-

Optimized the Content Structure
  • Optimized each service content with authentic and proper information.
  • Included necessary CTA so that visitors find it easy to take action.
  • Made proper utilization of EAT throughout the content.

2. Created a Consultation Page

Every Law firm should have a consultation page with necessary query boxes. In this way, the users will find an easy way to share their information and discuss the case. So, we have created a new page for the viewers so that they can consult with our clients through this page. The consultation page includes-

  • Query boxes for the client’s general information and the opposing party’s information.
  • Also, there are boxes for providing the specific matters, employment status, and attorney fees (Retainer).

3. Deleted All the Internal Broken Pages

Then, we moved forward to remove the 404 errors. To fix this-

Deleted All the Internal Broken Pages
  • We have replaced the broken links with the live ones.
  • After that, we deleted the rest of the useless links.

4. Generated the XML Sitemap

Due to the missing XML sitemap, our client’s site was performing poorly on the search result page. So, we generated an XML sitemap using the Screaming Frog SEO Spider tool. After that, we have submitted the most required sitemaps to Google Search Console.  

5. Backlink Profile

We first inspected the existing links to determine whether they were valid or not. As toxic backlinks can harm the website’s authority, determining them was essential. In the case of Mark Anthony Law, we needed to-

Backlink Profile
  • Remove some links because they weren’t up to the mark.
  • Once cleaning the links, we have performed outreach to improve this site’s authority and quality traffic. 

6. Improved the Site for Local Citation

Rank higher in local search results is also very crucial to get potential local clients. As this site already had an account on Google My Business, we focused on getting this site cited for law-specific directories. A huge portion of the client comes from local or law-specific directories.

People usually search for legal services directly in the legal-specific directories like   lawyers.findlaw.com, lawyers.com, yellowpages.com, nolo.com, avvo.com,  lawyers.justia.com. Therefore, to get closer to the real clients, we’ve listed Mark Anthony’s law firm in these directories. 

A Successful Result

We started our project with this client in March. And now in June, we can proudly say that this site is consistently increasing its growth. For the last 3 months, the site ranking is steadily improving.
