Exclusivity, Ethical Tactics, & Results

Exclusive

At PaperStreet, we work for your firm only. We can guarantee that we will never accept a competing law firm as a client in your region or practice area. While other marketing companies have no qualms about working for competitors in the same region, or even the same building, it’s a practice that we don’t believe works. In addition to hindering results, it is also a conflict of interest. Our services are exclusive, and our goal is to help you succeed. We want to see you dominate in your market!

Ethical Tactics Only

With the competition heating up, some SEO companies will resort to cheap or unethical tactics to improve their clients’ rankings, also known as “blackhat” SEO tactics. This includes:

  • Link Schemes and Directories. Building high-quality backlinks to your site is great. However, there are many companies that rely on link schemes and paid directories to generate juice for your firm. From forum comments that link back to your website to sketchy directory and bookmark sites, these strategies just don’t work. We don’t pay for links, and we make sure all of our backlinks are organic and trustworthy.
  • Keyword Stuffing. Long, long ago when SEO first hit the internet marketing scene, one of the most common beliefs was that keyword density was the key to getting the best rankings. This led to something that we call keyword stuffing. You might have seen it, or maybe you were advised to employ this outdated tactic on your own website. Keywords, keywords everywhere -- in your page titles, in your footer, cramped into your site’s code and stuffed into your on-page copy. It might have worked back then, but now Google has caught on and issues serious penalties for cheap tactics like this. More importantly, clients have caught on. People are getting more keen on how the internet works, and they can clearly see when a site is untrustworthy.
  • Bad Content. Can you imagine visiting a competitor’s website and seeing the very same content that is being used on yours? Sadly, this happens all the time. It isn’t uncommon for cheap SEO companies to reuse pre-written content for all of their clients, with no regard for what makes you and your firm special. Duplicate content looks bad, to clients and to Google.
  • Outsourcing. It’s true that one team can only do so much, and sometimes outside help has to be brought in to complete your work and occasionally, meet your budget. This usually includes interns, freelancers, or partner companies. However, in some cases, you might be paying for your so-called SEO experts to send their dirty work to other countries, like India, Pakistan or Russia. Needless to say, the results aren’t usually good.

These outdated strategies can result in temporary advantages in Google’s search results. But more importantly, they can lead to bans and penalties for your website. At PaperStreet, we don’t believe in shortcuts. We play by the books, and we put the work in up front to ensure your long-term success.

We pride ourselves on our organic, natural SEO. Gone are the days of writing for Google’s algorithms and slaving over keyword percentages. From our title tags to our on-page copy, our custom content is eye-catching, compelling and effective. We make it easy for your clients to get the information they need in a way that is interesting and easy for them to read.

Results

We’re confident in our team, but we’ll never promise you the moon. Any SEO company that guarantees results should be treated with extreme caution. In addition to being against Google’s guidelines, this is simply not realistic in the ever-changing climate of the internet. We can guarantee that we’ll do everything we can to improve your website and web presence. At PaperStreet, we’re passionate about SEO, and our results speak for themselves.

Many of our clients boast first-page rankings and bring in several new inquiries each day, along with millions of dollars in revenue. Once you sign up, we provide monthly reports that will allow you to easily keep a finger on the pulse of how your website is performing. We do our best to be transparent and honest about every step of the SEO process, and we want to help educate you on how and why we make the decisions we do. We encourage open communication, and we’ll never make any changes to your website without your approval.

Good things come to those who wait, and SEO is no different. There are a number of factors that can play into just how long it will take for your rankings to improve, including but not limited to:

  • How competitive your market is
  • How long your website has been online
  • The amount and quality of content on your website
  • The size of your geographically targeted area
  • The overall design and usability of your website
  • The structure (or site architecture) of your site
  • Whether you previously engaged in “black-hat” SEO techniques

We typically see our best results in six months for an average client. Organic SEO takes time, patience, and dedication, and that is something we can promise you.


Key Benefits

Exclusivity. We Won't Work for Your Competition

Many providers say they work for you, but they also work for your competitors. Sounds like a conflict of interest. We offer exclusive agreements, so we work for only one firm for each particular practice area/region for our advanced packages.

Ethical Tactics Only, No Penalties

We believe in a long-term strategy. Sure, there are questionable shortcuts and tricks you can attempt with, but they can lead to penalties and outright bans. Our goal is to get your website to the top while also complying with search engine guidelines.

Top Rankings Mean More Clients

The legal market is the most competitive market online. However, it can also be very lucrative if you rank on the first page of search and at the top of results.


Key Questions & Certifications

Here are a few questions to ask with searching for a SEO company:

  • Contract: What is the Contract Length?.
    Ours has no strings. If a company makes it hard for you to terminate their services, what does that say?

The longer we are working with your firm, the better the results.
