Recognized as an authority directory on Google:
Here is an example of the authority that DJA has built with Google which in some searches appears in the knowledge panel. All of our customer profiles are rewritten and optimized for optimal results in Google when a potential client “Google’s” your name + attorney, or name + lawyer. This helps to reinforce social proof and helps with converting a potential client that may be in “research” mode into a perspective client.
Member Listings also include Schema markup that will connect with the authorship on your individual website. If your website has Schema markup on it now, it will help YOUR OWN website rank better too. If it doesn’t, we can advise to what to task your existing SEO company/webmaster.
The reputation management benefits are staggering. All of these valued resources will help you control what people see on Page 1 when they search your name.
