DaytonOVI & Beyond

00Dayton DUITags: , ,

Dayton OVIWaaaaaay back in the late 1990’s I started Dayton OVI (then CharlesRowland.com) to market my law practice.  I built one page which consisted of a banner and my phone number. I used a friend, then a friend who knew a friend, because no one worked exclusively in the field of web design.  We were able to update the page to include a massive link bank.  This was cutting edge at the time. It took us months to make even minor changes to the site and, of course, the links were always failing. It should be noted that not all practicing attorneys in 1995-1997 had computers on their desks.  My managing partner at the time thought that the computer was a distraction that was only used for solitaire.

I Work For Google!

When Yahoo, then Google became dominant we started to adapt to what they would rank.  At the time, they were still ranking by the name of the site. We adapted by buying batches of sites (daytonovi.com, springfielddui.com, ketteringdui.com).  We took the time to make all of these links point back to CharlesRowland.com.   As you will recall, in the early days of web searching, people would type the name of what they wanted followed by “.com.” If you were interested in pets, you typed in Pets.com. We were smart.  For a time we were dominant across all search engines.

Dayton OVI & Beyond

When I changed firms in 2005 and focused my practice exclusively on drunk driving defense, I consciously made the move to DaytonDUI.com, then DaytonOVI.com as the flagship site.  Google was emerging as the champion search engine. You had to play by their rules.  They no longer liked web pages that pointed to other web pages.  They considered that cheating. It took years of work, but we built separate independent web sites for all of the cities that I regularly appeared in.  There was a site for KetteringDUI, XeniaDUI, BeavercreekDUI, SpringfieldDUI, FairbornDUI, HuberHeightsDUI, etc., and sites devoted to areas of OVI law like RetrogradeExtrapolation.com and StandardizedFieldSobreityTests.com.

Dayton OVI (The Blog)

By 2010, Google was more sophisticated and increasingly dominant.  No longer were static sites with information enough to generate rankings.  Instead of splash pages, they wanted sites with depth and information. Because I love this area of law, I was poised.  I began the DaytonOVI Blog with posts about all areas of law.  It was recognized by various legal blogs and selected for inclusion in prestigious blog accumulators. We went back to make all of the content on the various pages accessible via blog posts.  It was a great deal of work, but I created what you now see as the current version of DaytonOVI.com.

Dayton OVI In The 21st Century

The blog also plays to my advantage because of my work ethic and dedication to OVI defense. Google rewards depth of knowledge, constant updates and consistent posting.  That means that an attorney who dabbles in OVI defense is incapable of outworking me because they have to divide their attention. I have been able to develop a library of information on DUI that is useful and accessible.  I have even got to the point where I can bring in my blog posts and use them as research in court.  Staying up-to-date and on the cutting edge is important to me and beneficial to my clients.

I do not know what the next generation of internet development will be. I stand ready to take the steps necessary to be a leading voice in the field of DUI defense.  If you want an attorney with a passion for OVI defense, please contact me at (937) 318-1384.  Please let me know what you think of the sites and the information.  Much of the improvements are due to your comments.  Thanks for taking time to read this post.

Dayton Municipal Court To Include Translation Services

Dayton Municipal Court to offer Translation Services

The foreign born population in the United States has boomed over 57% in the last decade. More than one in 15 of our fellow Ohioans speak only “a little” English or speak “less than well.” Russian, Swahili, Somoli, Turkish and other dialects make up a large proportion of the non-speaking population, as well as the growing Spanish-speaking population in the Dayton area. Language barriers can make it hard or confusing for citizens to access needed services, and criminal defendants and victims have the right to understand what’s happening in their cases.

Welcome Dayton, the Dayton Municipal Court and the Dayton City Prosecutor’s office are making an effort to provide people who come in contact with the court, important documents in languages that they understand. This will help them understand the proceedings and help them comply with the often confusing court requirements.

The push to convert key documents into foreign languages is an outgrowth of a language-access policy the city adopted earlier this year. The policy states no citizens can be denied access to services for being limited in English proficiency. It also says Dayton will prioritize document translation.
