Problem: You heard that blogging was the ticket to more web traffic and could increase leads. You’ve put in the work but still don’t have the traffic.

It’s true that over 40{49e08ae446e06a957b76e0e44e8d0837316e79516cf60872be00d00cbe51f2b7} of law firms report getting cases through their blog posts. If you aren’t a part of the 40{49e08ae446e06a957b76e0e44e8d0837316e79516cf60872be00d00cbe51f2b7}, you’re probably making one or more of the following fatal mistakes on your firm’s blog.

Here are a few life-changing fixes to the most common lawyer blog problems.


Foe: Irrelevance.

Most law firm blogs lack content relevant to search queries. Search engines and visitors alike can see right through this approach. We’ve all seen blog titles like:

  • Reasons You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer
  • When To Call a Seattle Medical Malpractice Lawyer
  • Why You Should Never Trust the Insurance Companies

Who expects a personal injury lawyer to give honest advice about why anyone should hire a personal injury lawyer?

Fix: Eat Crow.

Before you publish a blog, ask yourself: “Would I read this?”
