Localised Directory Sites
Local directory sites are great for the authority of your website. Again, Google ‘directory sites’ followed by your region or even your city. You could also put a competitors name into the search engine and find where they are listed too.
Links From Other Websites
This is a little different to a business directory citation, but important all the same. This is where another website links to your business. It is considered a vote of confidence in the search engines eyes and will boost your SEO efforts. You can gain links from other websites by providing great content which other businesses just want to share with their community.
