Quick Tip for Freelance Success: Get Listed in Online Directories

  • Maja Nenadov Webster

A quick Google search will also open up a whole new world of online directories – where you can create a listing for your freelance business. It will take you only a few minutes to add your business to them, and the majority allow you to do it for free. Let’s say you are a food photographer in Preston, UK. A lot of business directories have high-traffic and high domain authority – so if somebody searches for a food photographer in Preston, it’s very likely that your business listing on the directory will show up above your website in searches, and maybe even on the first page of Google. I recommend focussing only on the well-established directories and creating solid listings that you will keep regularly updated and optimised. Smaller directories often take their information from bigger ones – so you will most likely end up in those as well, passively.
