Law Firm Links – “DoFollow” Tuesday

DoFollow TagsEvery Tuesday we pick a vertical market based on the number of votes a market receives at our Vertical Market Poll. This week it is the Law Firm market. We invite all of you out there to post (in the comments) a specific link building recommendation for the legal market (a good directory, authority website, blog, link search, etc.). If it adds value, we will approve it, give you the credit and a “dofollow” link to your site. However, we will just delete stupid, irrelevant, spammy comments – only truly useful information will be allowed. 

There was a great post by Rishi on SEOmoz.org this week that gave us the idea for our recommendations below.  In fact, we are just going to grab some of his suggestions (to see them all visit his post), and give examples below.

Look for links from professional affiliations:

What business groups do you belong to? [exampleAZIPA]
Who do you refer business to? [exampleNotary Bids]
Do you know your regular clients or customers? [exampleFennemore Craig Client List]
Who provides complementary services to you? [exampleYour CPA Firm]

Look for links from your personal network: 

Do any of your relatives and friends run businesses? [exampleStart Young Play Strong]
What professional groups do you belong to? [exampleState Bar of Arizona]
What local businesses do you have more than casual acquaintances with? [example:  A Phoenix Law Firm Has Friends Here]
Do you belong to any community projects or do any charity work? [exampleArizona Cancer Charities]
Do you have a web profile anywhere? [exampleLike a LinkedIn Profile]

OK – there are some really nice opportunities for law firms.  Now lets hear from the rest of you. Place your advice for link building for the law firm market in the comments below. Those that are accepted will get a nice "dofollow" link from us.

Make sure you sign up for our email or RSS feed so that you are alerted every time a new niche market is covered. Even if we are not focusing on your niche, you just might see a pretty creative idea that will trigger an thought for your market. 

WE NEED VOTES!  Please be sure to vote for your market today!  VOTE HERE

    Many law firm websites are managed by companies who have made other law firm sites, if you can find one of these firms than you will have the opportunity for several reciprocal links.

    • There are a lot of business directories and local directories.

    • Local library’s websites

    • Also using Google search allinanchor,allintext to find different linking partners

    • Trading article with other webmasters

    • Submitting a press release

    • Craigslist
