Once you have listed your business with at least 5 general directories, it is also worth listing in relevant industry directories. The benefits of listing in industry directories are much the same as for listing in local directories.
Be sure to list only in relevant directories. If you try and list a plumbing business in a directory for hairdressers your listing will be deleted.
