It has become common that law firms are leasing or renting websites that rank well in search. In fact, there is a front page search result for “Los Angeles car accident lawyer” in which the law firm is leasing the space of the website to get leads from Internet searches.
At first glance, it does not look as if the Law Offices of Robert Salinsky have done much in terms of SEO for the exact match domain URL.
