Top Free Australian Business Directories

If you are a small business in Australia are you taking advantage of all the online services that you can to give your business a boost online?  Especially when they are free to list on and promote your business.

There are many reasons to list your business on some of the better Australian business directories including:

There are hundreds of business directory sites and you don’t need to list on all of them (and you shouldn’t), concentrate on making sure you are at least listed on these top directory sites and also consider listing on the top niche services for your industry as well.

One way to find those online services is to do a search for 3 or more of your direct competitors on google or bing and make a note of the sites where they are listed.  You should list your business on any of the services where your competitors are listed but you are not, if you don’t you are just letting searchers on those sites go directly to your competitors.

While there are many posts online already listing Australian business directories many are out of date.  at myPresences we monitor thousands of online services worldwide and our list was compiled in July 2018.

Each service is ranked by Domain Authority which is a score out of 100 which indicates how well a website will rank in search results.

If the service supports ratings and reviews then let your clients know they can rate and review you on these profiles, having great social proof on your profiles may be the difference between a customer coming to your business rather than your competitor.
