One of the many things you have to do in order to get your site well ranked at the search engines is to get links from other well established sites, especially legal sites that are focused on your legal practice area such as DUI, Personal Injury, Tax Law, etc.
Links from other sites are one of the many things that make up how your site is indexed by Google and a pretty important one. Google looks at links to your sites like Votes for your site, the more votes you get and more importantly the quality of those votes, can go a long way in determining where your site gets ranked in the search engines.
Getting links from legal directories can be one way to obtain a quality backlink to your site, especially if the site your getting the link from is an older well established site and the real key is that the link is a FOLLOW link, versus a NO Follow link. A No Follow link will tell Google to basically not count the link.
Another factor to consider when listing with a legal directory, is where your placed and how much traffic that directory gets per month. Yet even if you just get 10 visitors a month from the directory, it can be worth it, especially combined with the fact you can also get a quality link to your site.
There are many different legal directories out there. I use a variety of different legal directories for my clients. Some of the ones I use are:
– Law Firm Directory – List your legal site for as low as $20 per month or $250 for the year. Premium listings are $995 for the year.
– Personal Injury Directory – List your personal injury or accident lawyer site here.
– Washlaw Legal Directory – Free .EDU Link from lawyer directory.
– DUI Lawyer Directory – Get your DUI Attorney site listed.
