A New Google Algorithm Update That Changes Everything

google algorithm update mobile
Head Up

Last month, Google did something very unusual. They flagged ahead of time an algorithm update.  This rarely occurs! We tend to find out about such an update after the event.

One can only surmise that their warning derived from the fact that this isn’t just a minor update, but rather major.

How Will the Algorithm Impact My Law Firm?

There’s no denying that in getting or maintaining your rankings for competitive keywords in Google, website speed is becoming a major factor. It’s so major that we’re literally redesigning a number of our client’s websites substantially ahead of schedule.

The Google Algorithm update aims to improve page loading speeds and use it as a primary ranking factor in searches.

What Your Firm Should Do Now?

Most importantly you need to run your firm’s website through a number of speed tests. We talk speed and SEO here.

How Does our Law Firm Address This?

It may be the case that you’re looking at a complete rebuild or it may be the case that a moderate overhaul of the technology underpinning your website is all that’s necessary.  We can help your firm in these two respects if need be.

Do You Really Mean All Law Firms Need to Jump on This?

No, not necessarily.  Sure, site speed improves the usability of both potential and existing clients and aids conversion rates, but if your firm hasn’t an SEO strategy in place and isn’t looking to adopt one, you might not need to worry about this just now.

We Need Help

If your law firm is considering a new website, the time to do it is now! Similarly, if your firm is concerned about SEO and your website is lagging, particularly on mobile, don’t leave it too late to address the issue.
