Which Free Online Business Directories?

Which Free Online Business Directories?

Posted on Thursday, April 2nd, 2009 by Jim

There are many online directories offering free listings.

After trying many we have settled on the following list as those which we consider to be worthwhile.

General:

www.dmoz.org *
www.google.co.uk/local
www.smilelocal.com
www.freeindex.co.uk
www.hotfroguk.co.uk
www.touchlocal.com
www.thomsondirectories.com
www.yell.com
www.bttradespace
www.doweb.co.uk
www.countyweb.co.uk

When adding a listing use SEO target phrases. For example, rather than listing “Semlyen IT” we might call ourselves “Semlyen IT Consultants York” and ensure that “IT consultants in York”, “website design in York” etc. appear in the business description.

After creating the free listing some sites will call to sell a premium listing or other advertising. We’ve never taken them up on this. The money is better spent on further SEO!

Online Directories for Property Agents:

www.email4property.co.uk
www.ukpropertyshop.co.uk
www.globrix.com
www.wheresmyproperty.com
www.clickestateagents.co.uk
www.estateagentsukdirectory.co.uk
www.estateangels.co.uk
www.estatepropertyagents.co.uk
www.home.co.uk
www.ourproperty.co.uk
www.themovechannel.co.uk
www.ukpropertyshop.co.uk
www.wheresmyproperty.com

Do let us know if any of these sites are defunct or if your listing doesn’t appear. Tips on other directories and why they’re worthwhile using would also be appreciated…

* Thanks to Shernni’s Candies for pointing out that I’d missed the most important of all – the DMOZ!
