Is It Really Free?
Yes. The website is supported entirely by Aaron
Larson, a Michigan attorney. There are no fees for listings
or searches, and attorneys contact experts directly. That
is to say, this deal is unbeatable.
How Can This Be Free?
Probably because Aaron
Larson grossly underestimated the time and effort involved
in a project of this magnitude.
In all seriousness, though, this is free because there
is no other way to build a comprehensive directory of experts
on the internet. Mr. Larson, as an attorney, knows how hard
it can be to find a good expert, and wants to create a resource
whereby attorneys can find and select experts conveniently.
By allowing free listings, even low-traffic pages can be

What Else Should I know?
If you are serious about marketing on the internet,
it pays to develop a good website. Take a look at your competitors'
sites -- does yours measure up?
Don't assume that, just because you are on the internet,
or just because you are in our directory, that the world
will beat down a path to your door. The internet is huge,
and it takes work to build traffic to your website. Remember,
also, that quantity isn't the only thing that counts --
this site is not likely to produce a huge number of hits
to your website, for example, but it is likely to draw people
who are genuinely interested in retaining your services.
Register your website with the better directories and search
engines - including Findlaw,
and Google. (Note that
some of these services now charge to review submissions.)
Also, list in DMOZ --
it is easy to get your site included, and its importance
is growing by the day. The data from the DMOZ directory
is now utilized by HotBot,
