Go to Google, Bing, Yahoo and search for business directory. Look at each directory and be sure your business is listed. There may be some you’ll want to skip. Most will supply a free link to your business. Do it!
Then, search for directories for your industry. For example, you could search for “Office supply directory.” You’ll see directories specifically for your industry. You definitely want to be within those listings.
This is free and easy to do.
Not only will your appearance in the directories get you more traffic, but having more links TO your business will greatly improve your search rank. If your business is showing up on page 5 of a Google search, this could take you to page 2 and perhaps even 1!
Allow time for the search engines to digest the information. That takes about a month. Then you’ll see the results.
Do it! It’s free!
