If you’re looking for a job in the legal world, and you happen to have some SEO knowledge under your belt, it may be worthwhile for you to look into becoming an expert witness. What that means is that you’ll be called upon to testify in court for one reason or another, and you can be sure that the SEO community will be paying attention.
Being an expert witness in the SEO context doesn’t mean that you have to spend all your time testifying in front of juries. All you need to do is to obtain a certificate of certification from SEO Magazine (which I’m sure you’ve seen by now, I’m pretty sure it’s on the web somewhere). This is a process that has a number of steps to it, and the more specialized knowledge you have the better you’ll do at this kind of job.
Basically what it does is to establish that you are knowledgeable about SEO, and that you can provide an opinion about its effectiveness. So, if you’re capable of giving expert testimony in this context, you’re in the running for the Google lawyer job that’s not too difficult to get.
To get started, you must first obtain a membership to SEO Magazine. The membership is only a token payment, and only lasts for a few months, but it really is the best way to start.
Next, you should subscribe to the SEO Mailing List, as this will give you an opportunity to ask any SEO questions that you may have. Be sure to pass along any valuable information that you may have on SEO to this list as well.
SEO Material – You will need to purchase some of the more important SEO material. The Internet Marketing Association is currently compiling material for their Expert Witness Handbook, which is going to be absolutely essential to you if you’re involved in the SEO field.
Specialty software tools- If you’re currently using special SEO software and would like to upgrade to something more advanced, the Internet Marketing Association is also providing software as well. This will allow you to maximize your SEO efforts and produce greater returns on your investment.
You should be able to find professional SEO firms that are SEO experts, and they offer training courses as well. If you find such a firm, be sure to invest in the course in order to get yourself educated on the latest tips and tricks in SEO.
