Frequently Asked Questions about Free UK Business Directories

Making sure that your business has a presence everywhere online so that your potential customers can find you is critical to any marketing plan. Adding your UK company to a business directory or one of the many business listing sites is a great way to accomplish this.

Here are some frequently asked questions about business directories (sometimes known as business listing websites).

What is a business directory?

A business directory is a list of businesses in a particular category, niche or location. Having a listing for your company in a business directory allows you to be found by customers that are looking for your products or services. Many businesses will have a listing in a number of different UK business directories in order to share their business details with as many free services as possible. Whilst, on the surface, this is a good idea - listing with a directory that has a poor reputation can hurt your business. In addition, listing with a directory that has a poor ranking on Google, or has been delisted by Google is a bad move as this will have a negative affect on your own rankings and subsequently your business.

What is an online business directory?

An online business directory is a list of businesses (and sometimes non-profit organisations) that is usually categorised by either a particular location or industry. A way for local businesses to be found online is by being included in an online business directory. Having a listing in a website such as this enables you to find local businesses online or find companies in a specific niche. Most free UK listing or review sites allow businesses to update their business details including working hours, webpage links, and more. Listing your UK business with such a site is usually a straightforward process and only takes a few minutes.

Why should I list my business in an online business directory?

Most businesses have an online presence of some sort. Adding your business listing to an online business directory helps you get found easier. According to a Google study, 80% of consumers regularly query search engines for local business information, with half of them visiting a local business within a day of the search. As most directories are indexed by Google (and oher bots), you will get a number of benefits from your business listing. First, your name, address and phone number (NAP) will appear in the business directory and on Google, encouraging searchers to contact you directly. Secondly, you will have a link back to your website which Google will detect as a ranking signal and boost your SEO. Finally, the details about your UK business, whether textual, graphical or video based, will provide potential customers with the information that they need as well as giving the search engines some valuable information about you.

What type of business directory should I list my site on?

There are plenty of location specific and industry specific business directories UK for you to choose from. If you're trying to attract a local UK business then it makes sense listing your businesses on a local UK business directory, maybe focusing in on your own individual town or city. However, if you're looking to attract nationwide UK or global clients in a specific sector then it would be more beneficial to advertise in a niche business directory. If you're looking for a United Kingdom business in both of these realms then you may find a Free UK Business Directory that offers both of these options - industry specific and location based pages - which would satisfy your needs.

Why are business directories good for local citations?

Submitting yourbusiness listing to a online directory is great for local citations. Local citations are multiple consistent mentions of your UK business information and companies contact details on websites and maps. (These can be useful to share on review sites too so that users can make informed decisions.) These consistent mentions are seen by Google as a trust signal and will help your business rank in local Google search results. Its critical that you submit exactly the same NAP (name, address, phone number) to all local UK directories and maps that you list in to achieve a good rank in the local organic search results. Additionally, many an SEO agency will add their customer's details to a business listing directory to get an additional free NAP presence.

How can a business directory offer a free listing?

Most UK business directories offer a free listing but how can they make money on this? Hosting, writing content, domain registration, etc, all cost money so even though a free package is available, many a free UK business directory will state that they will only approve free UK listings within a month or so to encourage users to sign up to a premium package. Another benefit of a UK listing site offering a free option is for them to get a link back to their site. This will help the free online business directory with their SEO efforts.

Are there any restrictions to the types of sites a free directory will list?

If a UK business listing site or directory was focused on a particular geographical area (ie. free uk business directory) then they would only usually accept listings from UK companies. Furthermore, if they were concerned with only a city, e.g. London, then they would only accept listings from London, UK. Also, unless they are focused in a particular niche, most business directories from the UK do not accept listings from adult related sites such as gambling, sex toys or escorts. Most online directories are family friendly and try to protect their users. After all, the Internet is for everybody.

What ways are there to search a business directory?

Many business listing sites or UK directories will allow you perform a search using a combination of keyword search, sector, sub-sector, division, region or postcode. Some more advanced UK business directories allow uers to use UK map listings to show exact locations and to filter results to users own requirements. As the majority of sites are indexed on Google, Google can be used to search through the business listings too.

How do you make your business stand out above the rest in a free UK business directory?

The basic details that you can include in a free business directory from the United Kingdom are your business name, address and phone number, as well as your social media profiles. If the business directory that you have chosen also allows you to add some information about yourself then spend a little time planning out how to best use that space. You may want to state your businesses best selling services, your most profitable products or any discounts that you have available - things that users are looking for in UK business directories. Adding your business logo or a graphic with an offer on it is good practise too and is attractive to users. Any marketing tactics that you can use to publicise your brand and influence other interested shoppers must work in your favour. In this regard, adding social media share buttons to a business directory encourages users to share your details with others. More than one directory allows a link to your Google My Business account too.

Trade advantages of using a free UK business directory

In a business listings directory, your business product or company service will be noticed quickly by both customers and potential trade partners. Businesses looking for trading partners in London or the UK will head straight for a UK business directory to find a strategic ally. It doesn't cost anything to list in the directory making it both convenient and economical. Details can usually be updated straight away, allowing you to make changes as and when needed. A business directory can help push your brand forward and establish direct communications with potential business partners. Your business will see increased exposure for free and you will be recognised as a legitimate and professional company.

Why list with a local business directory?

In the olden days, you'd use the Yellow Pages to search for a local plumber if your washing machine broke down. Now you would just ask Google and the results would appear on the screen as your location would already be known (e.g. Plumber in London). If you list your company on a local business website then you'll have maximum visibility in the eyes of your local customers. You'll also be able to get your businesses phone number in their faces, and in the case of the broken down washing machine, get the problem sorted straight away. Another benefit of listing with a local UK business directory is search engine optimisation. Listing your site on free uk business directories gives you a certain amount of credibility and providing the UK business directory has done their job properly, your listing will be set up so that its UK presence will be included in the Google search results. Finally, the last reason that you'd want to list in a local UK business directory would be reputation. Having your business or company appear on the pages of a business listing site increases your credibility in the eyes of the prospect.

What if I can't find the right business in a UK web directory?

If you're looking for a local tradesman in the UK then you may be able to find someone suitable using Trustmark. Trustmark is the UK government backed quality scheme that links people to a wide range of reputable local tradesmen working to government endorsed standards.
