Beem Patent Law Firm
It was Wednesday night when I got the e-mail.
It was a contact form on my website. The person inquiring whether they had a valid New York medical malpractice case sounded intriguing. When someone fills out a contact form on my website, I get that e-mail to review. If it sounds like something I might be able to help with, I notify my secretary and she will schedule a phone conference with them the next day.
Within the contact form, our software provides me with details about where the inquiry came from. It also tells me what keywords the viewer entered into search engines in order to find me online.
As I scrolled down the e-mail, I casually glanced at the query and keywords this person entered. I was shocked.
I did a double take.
I reread again, for the second and third time, the question this person entered into the search engine to find me.
Then I smiled.
This was amazing. This was awesome. This was incredible. This was one of the best e-mails I have ever received.
The data showed me what webpage they first visited; what search engine they used [Google] and what search engine result page they came from.
But here are the two sentences that blew my mind…
What keyword did they use to find you:
Lord, which lawyer do you direct me to for my son’s malpractice lawsuit in New York City???
What fascinated me was that I never used any keywords for the Lord or religion on my educational NY medical malpractice website. What made me smile is that Google somehow felt I was the Lord’s answer to this man’s prayer. I found that to be absolutely remarkable.
Regardless of whether or not this turns out to be a valid case, this particular query will not be forgotten.
BTW, if you put that phrase into Google, out of 65,100 results, my content comes up not once, not twice, not three times, but four separate times on page one of the search results. In fact, it shows up in the #1, 2, 3 and 5 positions.
Thank you Lord
