Harvard Law Library’s Latest Research Guide: Smartphone/Tablet Legal Research

Harvard Law Library has recently added a research guide entitled “Mobile Apps for Legal Research and More.” Particularly useful are the free U.S. Government apps, which I have reproduced below. Of these, my favorite app is OyezToday, which allows you to listen to Supreme Court oral arguments and search through the transcripts.

    Hi blogger, i found this post on 20 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused
    by hi bounce rate. This is very important
    ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the back button. The
    higher your bounce rate the further down the search results your posts and pages will end
    up, so having reasonably low bounce rate is important for increasing your rankings naturally.
    There is very useful wp plugin which can help you. Just search in google for:
