Business Directories You Should Be Listed In

A lot of Small Business websites are not being found as they aren't listed properly (or at all) in online directories... Many business people think of Google and Google alone but many of the online directories have improved their positions in the Search Engines of late so it is worth claiming your business listings in them...

Google

All websites should be submitted to google on launch. Google will find everything over time but you're reading this because you want to be found. Submit your site to Google.

Google Places

Google Places for Business help get your business found on local search results on both Google Search and Google Maps, both places your business needs to be found on.You can list your products and services, trading hours and contact details with images too. Here is the BusinessDIY Listing.

Yellowpages

We all know Yellow pages and probably have advertised with them at some stage... Well they are still relevant and you should make sure they have your correct details even if you don't advertise with them.

Hotfrog

Hotfrog is another online directory that makes it worth your while to confirm your business is listed with them. You can list your business for free here.

Truelocal

Truelocal is owned and operated by Newscorp and has great reach across most parts of Australian Media so make sure your listing is up to date.

Zpages

Listed as "Australia's Best Business Directory". Not entirely sure that it covers many local areas well enough but is seen quite well by Google and they offer free listings.

Startlocal

Not as well known as a number of the others here but they have won several "Hitwise " awards for traffic to their site so that says its well used.

Dlook

They are listed as being "Australia's Smartest Business Directory" with over 1.5 Million listings! List your business for free also.

Aussie Pages

Aussie Pages is not as large as many of the otheres listed here but they are targetting consumers looking for businesses and offer free listings and any link for your business site is worth getting.

COMMUNITY FOCUSED DIRECTORIES AND NOTICEBOARDS

Gum Tree

Gumtree is similar to eBay but you can really narrow down what you want to find geographically so you know what you're buying is local, really local. Its a great local noticeboard like you used to find (sometimes still do) at your local supermarket.

Community Guide

Community Guide is listed as "Australia Business & Shopping Guide, your local guide to Business & Shopping in the Country of Australia". Information comes from a wide range of sources and this directory is indexed quite well by Google so again, get your business listed.

Our Patch

Our Patch is a great Community listing and worth getting on to. They allow for businesses and community groups to list themselves.
