What is Authority Building?
Some agencies call this "link building," we prefer to call it authority building. Ultimately, link building is one piece of the overall strategy of increasing your law firm's authority. In basic terms, link building is the process of having other websites point links to your law firm's website. What does this mean? For example, a reputable legal organization talks about a DUI topic and references a blog post on your website by linking to it; this would qualify as a "backlink" to your site. These types of actions by other websites are a signal to search engines and also prospective clients that you are an authority on that legal topic.
More About Lawyer Authority Building
Authority building isn't just about getting links to your law firm's website. First, links from websites that are not high-quality websites, or have no relevance to your website, will not help build your search engine rankings. Furthermore, your law firm wants traffic from websites that are sending prospective clients to your website. The ultimate goal of authority building is to increase your website search engine rankings and to help prospective clients see that you are the best lawyers for the job.
Authority Building Process
The first step in building your law firm's authority is to look at the current quality of the content and links pointed at your website. We look at your current PR strategy to see if there is one in place. The link audit is something that we simultaneously do with with a content audit. We identify broken links and links that are not helping the authority of your website. If you don't have a website yet, or there is barely any content, then we automatically move to the second step, which is the strategizing phase.
We identify mutually beneficial partnerships and develop the proper lawyer content marketing strategy during the authority building strategy phase. We conduct keyword and competitor research to determine the content types that are being shared and posted by other law-related blogs and websites. Then we identify and make a list of the bloggers, influencers, and authoritative websites that we will target during the outreach phase.
Once we have developed the content strategy and identified the partnerships that will help build the authority of your law firm, we reach out to those websites on your behalf. We approach other website owners, bloggers, and influencers with a value proposition that is beneficial to the website that is linking to your site or posting your content. They will have relevance for your law firm's area of practice and geography. The content will be high-quality.
After developing a customized content strategy and starting the outreach process, we will begin providing your law firm with monthly reports about the links we have secured. Also, you will be able to see the type of content we are using to build your firm's authority. The process of building authority through link building and other promotional techniques is ongoing. We are focused on creating a digital moat around your firm and securing search engine rankings for many years to come.
