A true measure of growth takes at least four (4) to six (6) months; and requires data being available in respect to the same timeperiod of the previous year.

Q: Are SEO Results Guaranteed?
Answer: Any marketing agency (for any business sector) that offers a guarantee of SEO results with statements such as: “Page one of Google in 90 days!” is being dishonest, if not a blatant scam/fraud.

Answer: Yes - we encourage our clients to contribute their own periodic content articles, opinions, news, events. Most particular, only you can provide the specific details about your law firm.

Q: Can I Do the SEO Stuff Myself?
Answer: Not without a decade or two of experience translating to at least a dozen hours per week with an extensive computer science background. SEO starts with writing good content articles; but it is much more technically complicated than simply being authoritative and comprehensive. Serious SEO includes various technical attributes that take years to develop and is incredibly time-consuming. Further, our SEO includes highly advanced concepts in artifical-intelligence evolution and a machine-learning algorithm developed in response to Google's own BERT algorithm - being far outside the scope of any do-it-yourself scenario. The BERT algorithm (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) is a deep learning algorithm related to natural language processing; and helps machines to understand what words in a sentence mean, with all their nuances of context.
Q: Can I Keep My Current Website?
Answer: If your website is not already with us, then no — for several reasons. Great law firm SEO requires a variety of technical fundamentals within the core implementation of a website; and chances are that your current website is built using Wordpress or some other system that treated SEO as a web-development afterthought, requiring a 3rd-party plugin to address SEO, rather than having been built strategically with SEO ideals as a core forethought and mandate. Our websites involve a vast database of comprehensive and authoritative content, which our proprietary A.I. (artifical intelligence) engine will automatically make unique for your website. To deliver the best-possible results for your money, a new and beautiful, search-optimized website must be built on our core platform. That said, if you like your current website as-is, then let us know what you like about it and we will do our best to match it. And if you don't like your current website, then let's get started with an entirely new redesign.
