1. What exactly is SEO and why do I need it?
SEO stands for search engine optimization — what it means is to have your website optimized for maximum recognition by the search engines. Here’s why you need it. It prepares your web site to be indexed and then ranked by the major search engines so that when internet users search for your keywords, your website will appear on their results page. When properly executed, search engine optimization yields targeted traffic to the site, thereby increasing your Contacts.
2. What are the initial or set up fees?
We don’t charge a huge set-up fee to begin. Instead, our Tier 1 strategy starts immediately at $1200/mo. and begins with an overall analysis of your site and prepares it for optimum search engine recognition. From there we dive right into the next steps of our strategy, staying in contact with you along the way. If you’re happy with our service, you then continue working with us and maintaining our SEO every month at that rate… or stop working with us. It’s as easy as that.
3. When should I start seeing results?
It really depends on where you are when you first come to us. I’ve seen a new page added to an existing site that will show up within a week. If you are a brand new site on the web, seeing results will take longer. We estimate a 3-6 month period for a new site to see positive results. We strongly suggest you continue working with us if you wish your positions to climb, maintain and to garner additional ones.
4. What about Tier 2 costs?
Our customized strategy (Tier 2) can involve as many services as you wish and really puts your marketing into high gear. As such, anything that is custom will require a custom price. As with every service we offer, NO yearly contracts are required, it is a month-to-month program.
4. Do you offer a Guarantee?
We do not offer a guarantee, and if any one else does — run! You can never guarantee a specific position or for that position to remain. The search engines are constantly reorganizing positions based on site performance and must always consider new sites added into their index. What we DO guarantee is our superior service and responsiveness to the needs of our clients.
5. Is SEO dead?
Lately we hear from lawyers saying they’ve heard that SEO is dead. Well, if it died we certainly have not received the memo at AJIS! (Maybe a rumor started by one of the Legal Marketing Giants) It is alive and well and continues sending our clients to the top of the search engines.
6. I hear a lot lately about the importance of incoming links. Do you help with this?
Yes, incoming links are a very important part of our SEO internet marketing strategy. We already have highly ranked websites in many law categories for you to be linked from so you don’t have to worry about finding sites that will link to you — which is an almost impossible feat. We ONLY use links from our own highly ranked sites — never link farms.
7. How much experience does AJIS.com have with Law firm SEO marketing?
We started in this industry in 1996 as web designers. When the Yahoo search engine was born it quickly became evident that search engines were going to be an important part of a site’s success so we changed gears….and haven’t stopped evolving since then.
8. What about your past results? Any testimonials?
Yes, you can view testimonials here.
9. I hear a lot about social media like FaceBook, LinkedIn and Blogging. Do you help with that?
Yes, social media now needs to be part of any good SEO marketing strategy and it is included in ours. You can view all of the details here.
10. Can you help us with video or podcasts?
Absolutely! Both of these are the perfect partner to our SEO and can be added as a customization to your strategy. We even offer legal content creation and writing if you need that added to boost your marketing.
