serve. While "key word" BANNERS on words would be too costly, you can place free listings on search engines. Use name of your city or state in your promotion. For instance, you can list your firm high on a search engine at GoTo.com and pay only when someone clicks on your listing. A Clayton, Missouri law firm in criminal law field should ask for listings on words "Missouri crimes", "Clayton crime","Missouri arrest", etc. to make sure responses are coming from right potential clients. The search engines, where you can pay per "click-through" can be a marvelouis bargain. Don't expect a flood of traffic, but what you do get can be worthwhile. In some cases, a "click-through" can cost as little as a penny. Submit your site information to major "search engines". There are many firms on Internet that will do this for you without charge. Some advertise they will submit your name to 2,000 "search engines", but this may just generate 2,000 "thank you" messages, and little else. When you submit your website to search engines, make sure it has "metatags" that clearly show your categories of law and your location, so you have a chance to end up in right spot. Ask your website designer to explain "metatags". Very few firms get high listings on "search engines" and viewing public rarely goes beyond number 20. While there may be thousands listed in a category, search engine will not let viewer go beyond 500. Professionals should let directories do marketing and bring highly targeted traffic to their site.
