Check Out These Amazing Results We Are Seeing For Criminal Defense Attorneys With Google Ads

Most people usually look for law firms based in their area, so we would also recommend to use keywords multipliers and add your city or state in some of those top performing keywords: Ex: drug dealer attorney in new york (this is not a typo. We recommend spelling all the words on a keyword phrase in lower case).


Your List of Negative Keywords is Equally Important

You should think about adding negatives as it is important to block irrelevant traffic. Irrelevant traffic to your site can be expensive.


For example, you don’t want to pay for “criminal defense attorney jobs”. The best way to find crucial negatives to add is to download the search query report and add queries that are not relevant as negatives.

Finding the search terms that triggered your ads is easy. You just need to define a period of time (ex: last 7 days), click on the “Keywords” tab and then on the “Search terms” one under it, as shown in the screenshot below. You can also click on the arrow with “download” written underneath on the right hand side, to download the report as an excel, .csv of Google Sheets file, to make it easier for you to filter this information.

Once you have analyzed that report and have highlighted queries that are irrelevant, you can simply add them as negatives by following these steps: click on the “Keywords” tab, then on the “Negative keywords” one under it, and then on the plus sign inside the blue circle:



Then you will find the menu below, where you can choose to either add negative keywords or create a new list, or you can also use a negative keyword list. The latter is normally a master negative keywords list that you have for all of your campaigns. You need to be careful not to have in that list any keyword that can be used in some of your campaigns. You can also add negative keywords at campaign level (shown) or ad group level by clicking on the “Campaign” tab:



Gathering Keywords by Themes and Creating Ad Groups

Having great keywords is not all, you now need to organize them by different themes and create a different ad group for each theme (ideally leading to a separate landing page), for high relevancy and quality score.


You can create ad groups in Google Ads by clicking on the “Ad groups” tab and then again on the plus sign, as in the example above.


Different themes can easily be found in the list of keywords above: cocaine distribution, cocaine trafficking, crack distribution, crack possesion, distribute drugs, drug dealer, drug dealing, drug, drug distribution, drug sales, drug trafficking, intent to distribute, meth lab, selling drugs.


Writing Eye Catching Ads that Match your Landing Page

A lot of people think that keywords are the most important thing in Google Ads and they don’t spend enough time thinking about their ads. Your ad text and the message it conveys is actually what will make people click on it and land on your website. That’s why you should put a lot of effort into it and think of what makes your firm unique so you stand out from your competitors. People in need of attorneys are looking for someone to help them and represent them, your ability to solve their problems should therefore be highlighted more than anything else. If you are specialized in criminal defense, you should definitely showcase it.


Google Ads also allows advertisers to use ad extensions and you should take advantage of them. They are a great way to give more information about your services without exceeding the characters limit in the ads, although they have a 25 characters limit each.


Some of the ad extensions we think are interesting for law firms are the following:


  1. Call out extensions.
  2. Sitelinks: They lead to other pages of your website.
  3. Call extensions: So that potential customers can call your firm directly by clicking a button on your ad.
  4. Location extensions: You offer your potential customers the opportunity to find the physical location of your firm


To add any kind of ad extensions, you just need to click on the “Ad extensions” tab, underneath the ads and extensions tab, and click on the plus sign, as shown below:


The landing page your potential customers land on is also very important. It is useless to write an eye-catching ad that stands out from your competitors if it sends your potential clients to a poor landing page that creates a bad user experience. These potential clients will not contact you, and worse off, you will be paying for all those clicks that lead you nowhere. Your landing page should highlight all the benefits mentioned in your ads, and better yet, it should mirror your ad text or closely match it.


Post Set-up Optimization

Google Ads is not only about finding the right keywords, you will need post set-up optimization to stay ahead of your competitors.


It is a long term commitment and you will constantly need to tweak your campaigns to get the most of them: you will need to download search query reports on a regular basis, analyze keywords performance, pause poor performing ones and adjust bids depending on their results.


It is always a good idea to analyze performance by device after your campaigns have been running for a while. Your campaigns may perform totally differently on desktops, mobiles and tablets, that’s why AdWords allows users to adjust bids on each device separately. To check your Google Ads performance by device and add a bid adjustment (from -100% to + 900%) on a specific device, just select a period of time, click on the “Settings” tab, then on the “Devices” one under it as shown in the screenshot below:

Another way to avoid spending too much money is to analyze the performance by day of the week or hour of day. Some campaigns perform totally differently at weekends, some perform better in mornings, while some other perform better in evenings. To check this, you just need to click on the “Settings” tab, then click on the “Ad schedule” tab, and select “Day & hour combined” or “Day” and “Hour” individually:

There are a lot of things to consider and to manage in all Goole Ads accounts, and we know that law firms are a highly competitive industry. If all this seems too complicated for you, just call us at 855-945-1596 for a free consultation. We will be happy to speak with you about your business and your needs.
