    I'm putting together this list of business directories based on my own resources and other lists I have discovered online. I am updating and re-organizing the list of directories today and I figured some of you might find this list useful for your own businesses, your client's businesses

    Most of the directories in this list are free, but some require payment. You should be aware that these directories have various verification processes that often require e-mail or phone confirmation, and these registration/verification/confirmation procedures often change (they don't want people building bots to automatically register thousands of businesses etc).

    If anyone has any relevant business directories they think should be included and they want me to add them to this evolving list, please post and discuss your suggestions here. I started out with hundreds of directories and now I've got thousands of URLs to check and organize, so my apologies if the list contains a few dupes, is unorganized in places, and what not.


    Most of the service providers' lists that they make public, I have found they usually only list a hundred or two hundred or so of the popular directories. I am trying to collect a much larger list and make it available to everyone that might find it useful.

    Hey zoomsixx, geez at least give some credit where it is due when you just COPY and PASTE my exact message from Reddit located here, and then copied my list directly off my site and post it here lol. I've been lurking BHW for a few years. :)

    The list above is VERY rough and I am currently re-organizing things on my site as I mentioned on Reddit. I was planning on sharing here once I got things a bit more organized, but you beat me to it I guess hehe.

    The constantly-updated list of business directories can be found on the following page:

    Comprehensive List Of Business Directories For Citations

    I've got thousands more directory URL's to go through that are not currently listed on the above page yet, and I am currently working on re-organizing and adding more directories to the "C's" and "D's".

    Thanks for the share. Seeing as you are in NZ do you have any directories or resources I can list on over there as a non NZ company ?

    OK for anyone following, I went through a ton of directories this morning, about halfway through most of my lists now. So you guys should see some new directories being added today and then daily at this point...I'm just trying to verify that there is a way to directly submit your business to some of these directories.

    Some of these directories essentially hide the "add your business" information and it is annoying. Either that, or they're simply an "indirect citation", meaning it is good to have a mention of your business on that specific directory, but there is no way to directly submit or suggest your business. Sites like this just pull their business information from other "direct citation" sources...

    I'm currently working with over 500 business directories on the Confident Brand page now. Still organizing everything into appropriate categories and verifying that you can actually directly sign up on some of these websites... plus added lots of new stuff like mentioning "Pinterest Place Pins" and OpenStreetMaps and other "open map" citation sources etc. So, you should still be able to get hundreds of "NAP" citations for any business with this list:

    http://www.confidentbrand.com/resources/business-directories

    I remember coming across a few decent "starter" citation lists for the UK, looks like the following websites list some good UK sources:

    http://www.targetlocal.co.uk/uk-business-citation-list/
    http://smart-local.co.uk/uk-citation-sources/
    http://www.brightlocal.com/2013/09/11/top-50-local-citation-sites/

    No problem, it is always being updated and I'm trying to organize it better.

    You can take all of your competitors or your client's major competitors and run their business names, addresses, and phone numbers in Google to research all of the major places their business is mentioned. Input those same competitor's business names, addresses, and their phone numbers as Google Alerts and you can then track any new business mentions/citations your competition creates automatically. You can use all the popular free or paid tools out there, like Whitespark, BrightLocal etc to locate/create region-specific directories too.

    For manual citation submission services on the forums here you should check out Andrew Scherer, he can get you a "master" list of a lot of the important directories based on your business location and your business competition:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/seo-link-building/611820-got-local-clients-hyper-local-citations-custom-built-your-niche-city.html

    Also I've got hundreds of city-specific directories for a lot of the major regions in the U.S. that I'll be adding to the list here soon:

    If you are ever looking for a Whitespark Local Citation Finder report but don't want to sign up for a monthly subscription, I have a gig on Fiverr. Just look up Whitespark on Fiverr to find the gig.
