    For a larger list of both paid and free search directories to consider, see http://www.strongestlinks.com/directories.php. The problem with most free directories is that they take months to list you, if they add your site at all. So I general y don’t recommend wasting your time with the free directories.

    Submitting to Local and IYP Directories

    I don’t care if you work out of your home office and use a 3×5 mailbox down the block as your business address, you should get your website listed in the local and Internet Yellow Page (IYP) directories.

    The Google search results are getting more crowded with Google Local listings appearing above the other search listings. Google Local and Yahoo Local search results are predominately influenced by listings in Switchboard and Verizon SuperPages so you should strive to get listings in these.




    Here are the top ones to submit your site to:

    Yahoo Local

    To add your business listing to Yahoo Local, go to http://local.yahoo.com and then click Add/Edit a Business at the bottom of the page.

    Google Local

    If you advertise with Yel ow Pages, you should already be in Google Local. If not, read the information at http://local.google.com/help/faq_local.html and then send an email with the required information to local-listings@google.com.

    AOL Yellow Pages

    Go to http://yp.aol.com for a listing.

    Verizon SuperPages

    Go to http://www.superpages.com/about/new_chg_listing_business.html to get a business profile listing.

    Switchboard.com

    Go to http://www.switchboard.com/adproducts.asp. Listings range from $15/mo to $35/mo.

    MSN Yellow Pages

    Go to http://yellowpages.msn.com. MSN charges $400/yr for this – they need to keep the shareholders happy I guess. Do only if you can really afford it.

    Finding Industry-Specific Directories

    Some of the most targeted traffic will become from the niche, specialty “vertical” directories in your industry or market. A simple way to find industry-specific directories is to search for them using terms such as:

    • “YourKeywords + add url”
    • “YourKeywords + add site”
    • “YourKeywords + add listing”
    • “YourKeywords + suggest site”
    • “YourKeywords + submit”
    • “YourKeywords + submit site”
    • “YourKeywords + directory”

    A good resource for finding industry-specific and specialty directories is at http://www.isedb.com/html/Web_Directories/Specialty_Directories/.
