Opt Out

Want to Opt Out of the Visalia Attorneys Legal Directory?


Please contact Visalia Attorneys in order to opt out of our legal directory, ensuring to reference the profile you wish to remove. Next, we'll verify the requester against the profile by comparing your email domain and company website.


Note: Non-official emails (i.e., free email addresses like [lawyer'sname]24@gmail.com) are inadequate and will require further information to proceed.


Once our verification process is complete, our team will delete your profile from the Visalia Attorneys legal directory and email you confirmation.


Why the Verification Process?


This precautionary measure protects our database from spammers and marketing firms trying to perform negative SEO on their client's competitors.



What's Negative SEO?


Negative SEO, also known as "Black Hat" techniques, is when someone uses online tactics to harm or tarnish your online reputation. These tactics could include a change in contact information or a deletion request. The purpose is to steal traffic, lower your search ranking, and ultimately take over your clients.


The visibility of your Visalia Attorneys profile directly affects your chances of getting new clients. Even an unclaimed profile with accurate details can generate 5-10 inquiries per month for your firm.


However, there is a limit on available clients in your area. Reducing your competition's online sources is one of the best ways to decrease potential client traffic. And, each new client that you secure for your practice is one less for your competition. 


Requesting an online profile removal is a common negative SEO tactic. This removal will reduce traffic to your legal practice and redirect clients to search for your competitors.


LOCALSYNC manages multiple professional directories, and interestingly, most opt out requests are from these free "fake" [lawyer'sname]24@gmail.com-type email addresses. Hence, when additional documentation is requested, over 97% never respond.



How do I Update My Profile if I'm Not Ready to Claim My Listing?


We will gladly remove your profile if requested, but why not let our team update your information for a one-time of $5.00? Each professional directory allows you to reach new clients through different marketing channels and gives you a valuable backlink that helps improve your SEO and search rankings in Google.


To proceed with a one-time update, check out our Turn-Key Legal Marketing store and select "Upgrade my Profile Information." Then, follow the steps to make your payment.


We will then verify the requester against the profile before making any changes. Your payment email address will be used as a point of contact. If we are unable to complete the verification, your payment will be canceled and refunded.



Do I Have to Set Up My Profile if I Claim it?


Nope! Your annual marketing subscription comes with a free profile setup.


Go to our Turn-Key Legal Marketing store, select the subscription you want, then make payment. We'll take care of everything else, but we'll let you know if we have questions or need additional information.
