Your presence in the top online business directories will help you to attract new customers, both directly and indirectly as an influential SEO ranking factor. Here’s our list of the best business directories in Australia, plus links to submit your business asap.
One of the most under-valued tasks for any business is creating and maintaining an online presence via business directories.
Your presence in the top online directories will help you to attract new customers, both directly and indirectly as an influential SEO ranking factor.
But, the first step is identifying the appropriate directories. They need to have the authority and have the real potential to send you new customers.
Want to know the best part?
I’ve done a big part of the leg-work for you. I’ve compiled a list of the best business directories in Australia along with direct links to pages so submitting your Australian business is that little bit easier.
Of the top 20, there are 17 free local directories and three paid.
Each local directory has been chosen due to their Domain Authority score. Despite constant requests to have other directories featured, this list will remain curated by the top DA scores so you know you can trust them. It is also audited every three months to ensure we maintain the best list for local businesses.
Other notable features that we’ve chosen to provide include estimated monthly traffic and what percentage of this estimated traffic is from Australia (sourced from SimilarWeb).
Moz reported in April that 50% of page one Google results were https and projected it may be as much as 65% by the end of 2018. So it might be worth taking this into account when deciding what directories you want to use.
“Domain Authority (DA) is a search engine ranking score …. that predicts how well a website will rank on search engine result pages (SERPs). A Domain Authority score ranges from one to 100, with higher scores corresponding to a greater ability to rank.”
