The normal listing position/directory placement for Premium Listings, when you first list your firm with a Premium Listing (and again when you renew your Premium Listing), it appears as follows:

USA - General Listing Placement When a Subscriber Initially Lists or Renews

  • At the beginning of your State's directory for all lawyers/law firm listings;
  • At the beginning of your City's directory for all lawyers/law firm listings; and
  • Near the beginning of the applicable directories for your city + practice areas.

Your Premium Listing then gradually drops down in all these directories as it is replaced by new subscribers and renewals in your state, city and applicable practice areas.

Worldwide - General Listing Placement When a Subscriber Initially Lists or Renews

  • At the beginning of your country's directory for all lawyers/law firm listings;
  • At the beginning of your city's directory for all lawyers/law firm listings; and
  • Near the beginning of the applicable directories for your city + practice areas.

Your Premium Listing then gradually drops down in all these directories as it is replaced by new subscribers and renewals in your country, city and applicable practice areas.

Only the Top Position, purchased by directory, remains constant for a full twelve months (or pro-rated to your firm's expiration date, when ordered later during your subscription term.) As a Premium subscriber, you can purchase a Top of a City Directory position for one or more cities where you have paid offices.

*This does not include or refer to all practice area directories for the city directory you purchase.

What is the Top of a City Directory Position

USA

Your Premium Listing will appear in the Number 1 position of the "City, State Lawyers, Law Firms Directory" for the city you have purchased. This does not include or refer to all practice area directories for the city directory you purchase. (To be No. 1 in 'City + Practice Area' directories, see Top of Practice Area Directory Position).

Example: Anderson & Associates has three paid offices in the State of Illinois. They purchase Top of City Directory position for their main office city of Schaumberg for a single payment of $400. The firm will remain in this number one spot on the Schaumberg, Illinois (IL) Lawyers, Law Firms Directory for 12 months, regardless of other subscriptions or renewals.


As other law firms purchase and renew Premium Listings in Illinois, they will move down in position in the other city directories where their additional offices are located, but their listing is locked-in for 12 months in the Schaumberg, Illinois (IL) Lawyers, Law Firms Directory.

Worldwide

Your Premium listing will appear in the Number 1 position of the "City, Country Lawyers & Law Firms Directory" for the city you have purchased. This does not include or refer to all practice area directories for the city directory you purchase. (To be No. 1 in 'City + Practice Area' directories, see Top of Practice Area Directory Position)

Example: The law firm of Wenger & Vieli has two paid offices in the country of Switzerland.

Important Notice

Please note that the Top of City directory position is not valid for the search results obtained from the HG.org search module. When a person types keywords into the HG.org search module, the Top of City directory position might not appear in the results. The Top of City directory position is only guaranteed to appear on the directories.

- Example of a directory for Chicago Illinois (IL) Lawyers, Law Firms

https://www.hg.org/law-firms/USA-Illinois/Chicago.html

As you can see, the URL includes the city and the state (or country). In this case, the firm who purchased the Top of City directory position will appear on the directory in the Number 1 position for 12 months, for only $400.

- Example of a search result in HG.org for a lawyer in Chicago, Illinois.

If you type "Chicago Illinois Lawyer" in the search module, the URL will be https://www.hg.org/lawfirms.asp

You will notice that the URL ends with "search" and that there is no mention of the area of practice or location.

In this case, the firm who purchased the top listing might NOT appear at the top of the search results. The reason being that the visitor might type keywords involving different areas of practice or locations (Example: Criminal Law Oak Park Chicago or Lawyer Chicago) instead of the exact wording for the directory.

However, Internet search engines capture Directories rather than actual search results. Therefore, when HG.org is located by a search engine, it always appears with its directories. This is why being in the Number 1 position in these directories is a very important advantage for your firm.

Cost - Top of City Directory Position $400/Year

The price for a Top of City Directory position is $400/year. We do not offer the top position for all the directories in a state, province or country. Top of City directory position is the "main" directory for all lawyers and law firms in that city - not individual areas of practice directories. Therefore, you cannot purchase all of the practice area directories in a city for a single charge of $400.

Pricing is subject to change without prior notice.
