Thousands of consumers research legal issues through our network of websites every day. Sharing your knowledge builds rapport with clients. And every article you publish links to your LawFirms.com or Nolo.com profile, increasing the opportunity for potential clients to learn about your firm and contact you.
Contributor's articles and profiles will be displayed on the LawFirms.com home page, directory, and resource center. All articles are also optimized to rank on search engines, giving you another opportunity to reach prospective clients. The more articles you submit, the better your exposure will be through our network and search engines.
And because it's free, you are essentially increasing your lead volume without increasing costs.
Our goal is to create a network of sites flush with helpful content and well written, practical information that will keep readers coming back for years. With this in mind, we've put together a set of guidelines to which contributed content must adhere.
Articles must be between 400 and 1,000 words (Longer articles can be submitted and will be paginated).
Submissions must be unique, in that they have not been published elsewhere online. For more on duplicate content, see our Article FAQs.
When you're choosing a topic, keep firmly in mind that Nolo's mission is to provide relevant, practical information to nonlawyers. Review our website to become familiar with Nolo's writing style and the types of issues we cover.
Avoid writing on topics that will quickly become irrelevant. Articles on recent changes to legislation, newly proposed legislation or other timely topics will quickly lose their relevance in the context of our site's legal library. This type of topic is best suited for a blog.
Additionally, we try to provide topic ideas to make contributing the appropriate kind of content easier. You'll see these ideas (tied to your practice area) when you go to the publishing tab of your Nolo inbox.
