One way local businesses can get found is through inclusion in online directories. Adding a listing to these online directories is easy, but if you only list in a few you’re really missing a huge opportunity to get found by online searchers.

Every individual directory that you submit to is another chance to get found online so it’s important to make sure you’re listed in every directory possible. I have compiled a list of many popular local directories available on the internet. Filling out the forms over and over again can be a big pain, so here’s a link to an Auto-Fill add-on for Firefox that should help prevent carpal tunnel.

I offer to set up these Local Listings for you, as listed in my Services section, but feel free to use this list to do it yourself. 🙂
