Blogs have been an effective strategy for law firms every since the blogging medium emerged from the primordial ooze of pet project websites accessible by dial-up Internet connections and took its place among powerful tools for attracting the attention of Google. Marketing professionals agree that updating your blog frequently helps your website’s SEO rankings, but how frequently you should update depends on a variety of factors.
How important are Google searches as a first point of contact with prospective clients? For law firms, Google searches are very important, even more than social media. It also depends how much competition you have for ranking on the first page of Google search results. Law firms have only a few competitors; you are only in direct competition with other law firms in your practice area in your county or metropolitan region, not every law firm in the United States. There is no one-size-fits-all answer about how often to post on your blog.
