AUGMENT YOUR INCOMING LEGAL LINKS

Incoming links are helpful, although their importance has been diminished as part of the last Google algorithm update. It is important to stay away from link scams in favor of direct links to legal themed sites. In addition, I would strongly suggest that you set up minimum link standards when thinking about potential link partners:

A. Google Page Rank of at least 3.

B. At best 20 links per page.

C. A direct hyper-link from the siteís Index page to the link page(s).

D. Link page is static html only!

E. Any link is sufficient, but one with your keyword(s) is the best way to go.

For example:

OK link: http://www.legal-advice-library.info Legal site that provides extensive, free informative legal articles and legal resources for California, Nevada and Texas.

Preferred link: Legal advice articles Legal site that provides broad, free informative legal articles and legal resources for California, Nevada and Texas.

F. Quality, quick descriptions, so you can get some additional traffic while providing the duel benefit of higher search engine standings.

G. If your potential link partnerís link page is a Ďframedí page or opens clicked on links in a Ďframeí avoid the trade.

H. Check your link popularity as well as your competitorís link popularity on a regular basis to gage your linking planís progress. *Note, email me for totally free link popularity software that will allow for you to do this and more for six of the largest search engines. (Windows only)

I. Make sure you only do direct trades and not triangle links. For example, site A requests that site B trade links. Site A does not intend to put site Bís link on their domain but, on another affiliated site C. This is a poor trade for site B.

J. Make it simple for your potential link partners to view your link requirements and cut/paste your link code into their site. As an example, you can view our link instruction page at: http://www.sandiegolawyerforyou.com/partner-signup.htm
