What is a business directory?

A business directory is a searchable online index of businesses, where listings are grouped according to a category or type in a readily digestible format, the key information of the businesses listed within the directory. The purpose of business directories is to provide people that are searching the internet with relvant information about your business such as contact information, location, and other ways to interact with your business. 46% of all internet searches are for local businesses.

The more sites that correctly and consistently list your business info, the more likely it is that you’ll be found by more of the customers you’re trying to reach. Business directories are the digital equivalent of the phone book, except it’s no longer enough to be listed in one phone book. You need to be listed in all the phone books.
