Top 10 FREE Web Business Directories
Top Free Business Directories
We all register our websites with the search engines, why? So people can find us!
Business directories do exactly the same thing although they are not as important as search engines; they are useful for a number of things for free if found correctly.
- They increase traffic because people have a better chance of finding you.
- They increase your traffic rank which boosts your SEO / search engine position as this will contribute towards your inbound links coming from well ranked websites.
- Increased sales/enquiries from increased traffic!
Below is a competent list of business directories that are entirely free to register with, they have proven to still provide useful traffic at a free price so do not wait further, get registering with them now!
- Yell – Worth a free listing as they are very well known however the sponsored listings leave a lot to be desired in terms of value for money. Yell have been around for many years now and are considered to be one of the bigger business directories running.
- Thompson Local – Again worth a free listing and in a similar prominent position to Yell but also it remains debatable if the sponsored listings are actually working.
- Free Index – Very in-depth and if used correctly you can excel. They allow for you to really promote your business, the more effort you put in, the better the result will be as they gift rewards for positive reviews on your listing left by your customers. These rewards can then be used in email signatures and on your websites giving your prospective customers that trust you want.
- Lacartes -New, but potential to be the next big thing! Similar to freeindex! Sign up now.
- Locanto – Good traffic yet fairly unknown so easy to get a top listing.
- Uk Small Business Directory – Very useful free listings.
- Business Magnet – Very useful free listings
- Search4me – Useful listings to submit your website to.
- Free Business Directory – Again, another good free directory.
- B2B Directory – Business to business directory entirely free.
Other honourable mentions include:
- 118 – It is hard not to have heard of these through television advertising!
