    Unhappy Frustrated - Broken Directories!

    Hi,

    Knowing that I need to get my clients on trusted directories, I get so frustrated with those deemed important but which don't work. Example is 2findlocal.com. I have registered and await a verification email but it never comes. This has happened a few times with other clients. No response either from the contact us form for help.

    Some never get added at all. It would be great to have a list of directories that actually work. I use Brightlocal and understand which directories to add to but have poor experiences with some of them. Anyone else found similar?

    Re: Frustrated - Broken Directories!

    Hey Caroline,

    Running a business listing service myself, I understand your pain all too well.

    Sites are constantly going down, sometimes coming back and sometimes not. It's a constant dance.

    2findlocal has been down for close to 6 months now. As has their sister site favecentral. They are not sending confirmation emails.

    A good start for you would be the Basic 5 of course: Google, Bing, Yelp, Yellowpages, Facebook. I'm sure you already have those.

    From there I would go to Apple Maps, hubbiz, yellowbook, local.com, superpages, kudzu, mapquest, foursquare, angieslist, elocal, spoke, local.botw.org, merchantcircle, brownbook, alignable, whodoyou, myhuckleberry, cylex, ezlocal, manta, showmelocal, hotfrog, n49.

    That's a good start. And I can 100% verify that all of the above will work. You will definitely have to do some digging to figure it all out. But they will work as of 2/13/18.

    Hope that helps!

    Re: Frustrated - Broken Directories!

    Hi Joshua,

    Thanks a lot. I've got most of the UK directories. 2findlocal was part of BrightLocal's suggestions when you use their tool so I guess they need to keep on top of which directories are closing so we don't go chasing for no reason!

    Many thanks
