position of the "Country Directory" for the country you have purchased. This does not include or refer to all practice area directories for the country directory you purchase. (To be Number 1 in 'City + Practice Area' directories, see Top of Practice Area Directory Position).
For example: Locking in the Top of Country for Egypt will have your Premium Listing appear in the first position for Egypt for 1 year.
Please note that the Top of Country 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 Country directory position might not appear in the results. The Top of Country directory position is only guaranteed to appear on the directories.
- Example of a directory for Egypt Lawyers, Law Firms www.hg.org/attorneys/egypt.html
As you can see, the URL includes the country. In this case, the firm that purchased the Top of Country directory position will appear on the directory in the Number 1 position for 12 months, for only US$400.
- Example of a search result in HG.org for a lawyer in Egypt.
If you type "Egypt Lawyer" in the search module, the URL will be www.hg.org/lawfirms.asp
You will notice that the URL does not mention of the area of practice or location.
In this case, the firm who purchased the Top of Country position 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 Cairo, Egypt, Theft Cairo Egypt, or Lawyer Cairo) 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.
The price for a Top of Country Directory position is US$400/year. This product does not offer the top position for all the practice area directories in a country, but you still have the option to purchase a Top of Directory position for a country. This is located in the "main" directory for all lawyers and law firms in that country - not the areas of practice directories. Therefore, you cannot purchase all of the practice area directories in a country for US$400.
Pricing is subject to change without prior notice.
- You must be a Premium Listing subscriber
