Directory Listings & SEO

Posted by (0) Comment July 28th, 2010

Hmm… are you wondering how to get your name out there? Well yes you say.

The options are endless. Endless. Never ending and mind boggling, jigglier than a trapster collision.

So how about taking micro steps and start listing your business on some of Australia’s largest online business directories. Tackle some of the basic work first. Test the water, check the depths and assess the task ahead of you.

Here are just a few online directories that you can list your business on;

TrueLocal.com.au
GooglePlaces.com
Hotfrog.com.au
EnterpriseSearch.com.au
Business.com.au
Yellowpages.com.au

Beyond this, there are a multitude of online directories – either generalist or specialist. And beyond this there are hundreds, thousands, and lots and lots (!) of places to list your business and things you could be doing to get your name out there.

And why would you want to do this?

(1) So people can find your business details
(2) So your business can get it’s name out there and start getting a higher number of clicks through to your website (resulting in enquiries & calls)
(3) So your business is top of mind over and above your competitors

So what you can do?

(1) You can go it alone and start searching the net to figure out which directories to list on
(2) You can google “Australian Directory Listings” (or any combination of keywords) and filter through the directories that suit your business
(3) Or you can choose a supplier who you believe can help your business develop a strategy for directory listings,  link building and search engine optimisation (SEO) (again, there are an ever growing number of organisations set up to do this).
