Best Business Directory: Top 50 List


Welcome to the list of the 50 best online business directories. Being a local business you need to make sure your listed in local directories for many reasons. Having people find you through a search on Google is easier when your business is listed in multiple places on multiple websites. These websites that millions of visitors visit, are highly trusted by Google and can give your own website powerful “Google link juice” backlinks. These link can help push your own site up in the search engines. There are plenty of local businesses that rank first page Google only using local business directories as their backlinks.

Why Should I claim My Business Listing?

There are a lot of horror stories of local business listings being claimed from other people. This can have a major negative impact on your SEO, and business brand reputation. This reason I bring this up is because to a lot of people, they think it might be unnecessary or to time consuming to visit each of these 50 business directories to add their brand name. Take the little extra time it takes to claim your link on the each best business directory, even if it’s just a few adds a day, the benefits out weigh any negative thoughts you may have of time management. Besides not every business industry will be able to list in all 50.

Which Is The Best Business Directory For Me?

It will depend on what industry you are in to determine the best directory listing site that fits. For example a Lawyers website should be on Yelp, but will not be able to list on AngiesList.
