Are you trying to get higher in Googles search rankings without spending a fortune? There are many things you can do to improve this but one of the key areas is to make yourself more visible in through directory services. Think of the phone book or yellow pages in the UK. The more directories you are listed on the more Google knows about your business.
There are services that you can buy online that will automate this for you but normally at quite a high monthly cost and often missing some key directories.
The good news is that I have compiled a current up to date list for any small businesses or marketeers needing to go through this process.
I have listed these directories below with a Google page rank (the higher the page rank the more you need to be registered). With one exception (costing £3) these registrations are free to do and will raise your profile with Google.
This is not a complete solution for appearing at the top of Google as there are many other things to think about but it will help you in your quest.
At the bottom of the page you can download this document as a pdf including the links to take you directly to the registration page (where applicable). Hope this is helpful and if so please like our Facebook page, or Connect to us on LinkedIn for regular updates or contact us about search engine optimisation services.
The list comprises of the UK Directory name followed by the Google page rank. Also included are social media your business should be registered with. Download the pdf with links to each registration page from below.
