There are many factors that influence your ranking in Google Local Search for an Australian Business. Apart from your own verified Google My Business listing, one of the most important ranking factors is how your business is listed in various local directories. Google uses these listings to validate your business. It is very important that your name, address and phone (NAP) are consistent across these directories.
So which directories should you list with? To help you, I have listed the following 10 directories. These carry high value in Google’s algorithm and I would encourage you to ensure that your business has a consistent NAP listing in them all. Most of these directories allow for a free listing. Simply click on each link and follow the prompts to add your business.
- True Local
- Yellow Pages
- Hot Frog
- Aussie Web
- Facebook Business Page
- White Pages
- Find Local
- Start Local
Work your way through this list and ensure that your business name, address and phone is consistent.
