Make Use OF Free Local Online Business Directories
First a big “Thank You” to everyone at my “Organic SEO Secrets” seminar yesterday for your enthusiastic participation and great questions!
One of the topics we explored was the use of free local listings to get traffic to your business website, and I promised to send out a local list for the Sydney Hills district. While this list may not specifically address your geographic location I encourage you to use it as a starting point for compiling your own local list:
- Aussie Web
- Come On Aussie
- Gumtree – Sydney
- Hills Directory
- Live Pages
- My Local Guide
- Norwest Directory
- Only Sydney
- Parramatta Community Guide & Business Directory
- Start Local
- Too Easy
- True Local
- Yellow Pages Australia
Increasing your chances of getting found in Google
Please be aware that most of these resources also offer you some kind of analytics report on visitors to your site from your listing, plus the opportunity for priority placement of your listing by paying a monthly fee. Before jumping in and committing to a monthly fee, I suggest that you let your listing run for a couple of months, check your reports from each listing, then make an informed decision about whether or not to pay for priority placement with that local listing provider.
The best FREE local list is still Google Places!
At the moment your business has just as much chance as the next of getting a high place in this listing, so I recommend strongly that you claim your Google Places page now.
