Every 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? [example: AZIPA]
Who do you refer business to? [example: Notary Bids]
Do you know your regular clients or customers? [example: Fennemore Craig Client List]
Who provides complementary services to you? [example: Your CPA Firm]
Look for links from your personal network:
Do any of your relatives and friends run businesses? [example: Start Young Play Strong]
What professional groups do you belong to? [example: State 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? [example: Arizona Cancer Charities]
Do you have a web profile anywhere? [example: Like 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.
