Boost your Business using Web Directories in 2021

Before the creation of the internet or search engines, directories were the standard approach to find local businesses for customers and also for businesses to reach out to the masses. Finding businesses in the yellow pages was time and energy-consuming. However, such days were long when the internet introduced Web Directories. To learn more about web directories benefits and renowned sites, keep reading.

What is a web directory?

A web directory is the modern online version of the yellow pages. These directories consist of a collection of links to websites either arranged alphabetically or categorized by niche. It generally displays essential business details such as the name, niche, a short description, a link back URL to the business website, and a few vital keywords that help them boost their rank in search engines.

When a user searches for a product or a service in their area, web directories help them discover a list of relevant businesses that can provide them with what they're looking for.

Directories are an easy way of putting your business out in the market.

In these directories, your business's own website is submitted to another website. Submitting your business to online web directories helps boost your online ranking, discovery and promotion, increases the customer base, and is a fantastic way of link building across the web.

There are several paid as well as free web directories, and although no two sites are the same, they more or less likely operate in a similar manner, and you will need to follow the steps mentioned below: 

Steps of directory submission:

  • Look for sites with high DR and traffic
  • Listing on both general directories as well as niche directories (vertical-specific) is a good strategy
  • Check whether the directory is SEO-Friendly or not
  • Fill in the required details on the site and confirm the submission.

Types of directory submission:

  • Paid Directory Submission
  • Free Directory Submission
  • Manual Directory Submission
  • Automatic Directory Submission
  • Do follow Directory Submission
  • No follow Directory Submission
  • Niche Directory Submission
  • Reciprocal Regular Web Directory Listing

Benefits of directory submission:

  • Increased organic traffic
  • Higher Search Engine Rankings
  • Increase Link Popularity
  • Brand awareness
  • Affordability
  • Rapid indexing of Website

However, the practice of submitting information of their business in these directories was highly exploited by webmasters all around the world to increase backlinks for their website and thus spamming the directories.

Due to this, users nowadays prefer business listing sites compared to web directories as most businesses listed are legitimate and authorized with fewer spams.

Web directories that still have great value today and attract traffic.
