Let’s get started.
What Is A Traffic Source?
Before we even get started on the best traffic source for your law firm, you have to know what a traffic source is first.
According to Webopedia…
A traffic source report provides different kinds of sources that send traffic to your Web site, for example direct traffic is clicks from bookmarks or visitors who know your URL.
You can see all your website traffic in Google Analytics under the Acquisition reports. There are many traffic sources like Google AdWords or FindLaw.com. If you’re running the marketing for your community, get very familiar with that section of Google Analytics.
Best Traffic Source: Local Organic Search / Local SEO
There are many traffic sources that send visitors to your website. But you want to know the most effective traffic source for driving leads to your law firm.
That source is local organic search (also known as local SEO).
So what is local organic search?
According to Econsultancy.com…
Local SEO is focused on providing results that are relevant to a searcher based on their current location. If I search for ‘best steak restaurant’ on my desktop right now, Google would provide me with results that are nearest to me.
And these are free listings, not paid. The reason local search has exploded recently is so many people are carrying around their personal computers everywhere they go in their smart phones. And Google wants to deliver hyper-relevant results to those mobile users.
Consider this. In 2016, according to Bright Local…
- Only 20% of adults got their news from print newspapers.
- 64% of local customers use search engines (like Google) as their main way to find a local business. And what is a senior living community but a local business.
- A whopping 78% of local mobile searches result in an offline purchase.
What’s the takeaway?
A growing law firm must dominate local organic search results in Google, Bing, Apple, and Yahoo. When prospects Google terms like “truck accident lawyer dallas”, “personal injury attorney miami” (or whatever your practice area and wherever you are), you need to be there.
