Get Links and Customers by Listing on Business Web Directories.
1. You get a link back to your business website plus a citation online (both good for search engine optimisation).
2. Every individual directory that you submit to is another chance to get found by potential customers who use web directories to find and compare services and trades.
3. Having instances of your business details (citations) including your telephone number website and business address on lots of websites also helps with your Google Places ranking.
Ensuring that you have a presence on the most popular business web directories so that possible clients can find you is critical to any digital marketing plan.
Adding a listing to online directories is easy, although filling out forms and descriptions over and over again can get tedious, so it’s a good idea to have all of your business information written once in a word document that you can copy and paste across into the forms.
There’s an auto-fill add-on for the Firefox browser here that will save you some time if you want to use it.
