Personal Injury Lawyer Marketing Strategy


In Depth Website Optimization

In-depth website optimizations

First and foremost, the Cardinal Digital Marketing team performed a full-scale website audit and update. This included a variety of on-page optimizations, such as meta tags, header tags, unique landing page content, internal linking and image alt tags, all of it aligned with detailed keyword research. Our team also performed site speed optimizations and implemented a redirection plan for more than 35 defunct or archived pages.

Comprehensive link building campaign

Domain authority is a big part of search visibility and generating organic site traffic. To help drive domain authority for Harris Lowry Manton, our team performed ongoing link building outreach to make sure authoritative and relevant sites were linking back to high-value content on the website.

This included Google Plus shares and profile optimizations for both the Atlanta and Savannah locations, submitting online local and business directory listings, and revising outdated listings with current NAP information.

In addition, our team conducted a competitor backlink profile analysis to identify and pursue potential linking opportunities, as well as YouTube channels for both Harris Lowry Manton locations to share videos (and link them back to web properties). Finally, through a thorough “link detox” campaign we were able to analyze over 1500 links to identify and remove harmful backlinks.

Comprehensive Link Building Campaign
Blog Post Content Optimization

Blog posts and content optimization

Our content team also created and published new blog posts relevant to the main practice areas that Harris Lowry Manton aims to rank for (these posts were also used during link building). All landing page content was similarly adjusted to align with practice area optimization, including the appropriate use of keywords, length, and quality, as well as Onsite meta tags optimization for improved search presence for both the Atlanta and Savannah offices.
