Avoiding Duplicate Content on Legal Websites | Duplicate Content on Law Firm Websites
Duplicate content on Law Firm Websites
Search engines want to present attorneys' websites that have relevant, high-quality information. For your law firm's website pages to rank well in search engine results, you must not have duplicate content on those pages. Your website pages may be bumped down to lower search engine results if duplicate content is on your website.
At Page 1 Solutions, our law firm SEO specialists know how to avoid duplicate content problems. If you want your website to rank well among other attorney websites, you must have original, compelling content that will engage your website visitors and potential leads.
Avoid the Pitfalls of Duplicate Content
If you were to research a particular legal topic on the Internet and every website provided you with the same information, you would not find this to be all that useful. The search engines are acutely aware of the need for the attorney websites they index to be useful to consumers and as a result, they have created a series of complex algorithms which reduce a website’s value if it contains duplicate content.
It does not have to be an entire duplicate site or even an entire duplicate page. Your website may be discredited in the eyes of the search engines even if it only contains a few paragraphs of duplicate content. The search engines are forced to choose between the two pages, and your page may be buried far away from the first page of results.
It is important to keep these pitfalls in mind when building your legal website. Duplicate content can cause your search engine rankings to plummet, making it virtually impossible for potential clients to find you on the Internet. Considering that the Internet has become the primary way people find lawyers today, it is easy to see why putting duplicate content on your website is bad for business.
Creating Custom Content that Helps you Dominate the Internet
At Page 1, we write customized, original content for all of our law firm websites. Your new site will contain up to 50 pages of unique content, and we can write additional pages of original content as necessary to ensure you achieve the high search engine rankings necessary to help your practice grow.
Our legal website copywriters seek to accomplish two goals with your legal copywriting:
- Achieve the high search engine rankings necessary to drive traffic to your website
- Market the strengths and uniqueness of your practice so that you convert this traffic to leads and ultimately into new clients
Creating such a large quantity of custom content is very labor-intensive, but it is necessary to achieve both of these goals. While it might seem quicker, easier, and more cost-effective to just paste legal content from an existing attorney's website onto your new site, this would hurt our ability to generate the first page search engine results you need. Ultimately, your law firm would suffer in the long run.
Does your current legal website have duplicate content? We can quickly determine that for you. Together, we can devise a strategy with the goal of increasing your law firm's internet marketing ROI by removing duplicate content from your website and replacing it with custom content that is both useful to consumers and lets them know why your practice is the best option for their legal needs.
