How Good Deeds Can Boost Your SEO

by August Smith | May 20, 2024

It’s been said that a good deed is its own reward, and the fulfillment one gets from helping others is worth the sacrifice. But did you know the rewards from a good deed can extend to the digital realm, too?  If your firm focuses on altruism and philanthropy, it can not only improve your morale and reputation, but it can even boost your firm’s search engine optimization (SEO) standing.


In the biz, this is referred to as “earned media.” Earned media is free publicity gained through positive mentions, and it’s become increasingly important in the crowded online space. As algorithms evolve and consumers demand more authentic interactions, the significance of earned media continues to grow.


By intertwining altruism with strategic marketing, personal injury law firms can forge deeper connections with their communities while simultaneously enhancing their visibility in the digital landscape. Join us as we explore how good deeds can become powerful drivers for SEO success!


How Earned Media Impacts SEO


Earned media has a big impact on SEO, offering benefits that extend beyond traditional advertising channels.


It helps firms earn backlinks from high-authority websites, particularly from charitable organizations with robust online presences. When reputable charities mention or link to your firm’s website as a result of your philanthropy, it signals your site’s relevance and authenticity to the search engine algorithm.


The effect is even more noticeable on social media. Each share, like, or mention of a firm’s charitable initiatives contributes to increased online visibility and brand awareness. They generate organic traffic to the firm’s website, bolstering its SEO ranking.


Using Charitable Donations and Community Giveaways to Earn Media


Donations and community giveaways present a win-win scenario for your firm and charitable organizations. For your firm, they offer unparalleled opportunities to garner positive publicity and reinforce your brand values. At the same time, charities receive much-needed support, enabling them to further their missions and impact within the community.


There are many strategies for leveraging your charitable donations and community giveaways to earn media attention. One approach involves sponsoring local charity events that align closely with your firm’s brand identity. By associating with causes that resonate with your target audience, you can communicate your commitment to social responsibility while gaining exposure to a receptive audience.


Another approach is partnering with local charities for collaborative social media campaigns, amplifying the reach and impact of your philanthropic efforts. Encouraging charities to tag your firm when expressing gratitude for donations not only enhances brand visibility but fosters social media connections with potential clients in your area.


Finally, organizing community giveaways or contests with social media entry requirements can result in user-generated content and brand mentions. By incentivizing participation through charitable contributions, you can create engagement while raising awareness for a cause that’s important to you.
