Top 20 UK Business Directories (They’re All Free)

Have you read or been told you need to list your UK business in directories? It likely would have been in reference to improving your Domain Authority.

Yes, there are a number of benefits to listing your business in online directories, particularly if you choose to list your business in the right directories. 

So how do you know which ones?

Ask yourself the following questions before creating your shortlist:

  • Is the directory specific to your area or industry?
  • Does it look like it has real traffic, for example do you expect to get people visiting your website from the directory?
  • Does it have a high Domain Authority?

Of course, this process can be time-consuming, that’s why we’re committing to regularly curating the list of the Top 20 UK-based business directories by Domain Authority. To arm you with even more info, we’ve made a note of their estimated monthly traffic using SEMRush including the percentage of that traffic that originates in the UK.
