In its continuing journey to be all things to all people, Google is now becoming the source of choice for those looking for a lawyer:
The days when the majority of people went to the yellow pages and then over the past 6 or 7 years, Martindale's lawyers.com or Thomson's FindLaw are numbered. Google, like it dominates on other Internet search, will rule on local searches for lawyers.
Do a Google search for Austin divorce lawyer. Google provides names and a map with a listing of organic search results below it. The Lawyers.com and FindLaw directories are no where to be found.
As Google delivers better and better results, the number of people using Google is only going to increase. And do we really think my kids, who use Google to find everything (taught this in school), are going to look in the Yellow pages or lawyers.com when looking for a lawyer?
