10 Business Directories to Get Your Business Noticed

Finding different ways to market and advertise your business is a must.

If you haven’t already, have you considered listing your business in a directory?

An article in InvoiceBerry noted that “[…] directories are typically compiled by humans for humans – unlike search engine listings which are compiled by robots – the relevancy of results tends to be greater. Directories also tend to have higher Page Rank, so the link back to your website typically ends up being good for your overall link popularity and ranking.”
