What is a Business Directory?

A business directory is a website where businesses are listed by category.

Categorisation could be by type of business, location, activity, or size, among other factors.

These directories can include the following information:



Phone number

Type of Service

Type of products

Number of employees

Service region

Video profile

Why is it good to be listed on many directories?

The more directories you are listed on, the greater the chance of your business being found by people searching by keywords or categories.

Popular business directories include Google, Facebook, Apple, Bing, and Foursquare.

Our advice

Our advice is that you are listed on all the networks that we offer. However, we understand that you may prefer to configure the networks we send your business info to, so we offer the option to enable or disable which networks you're connected to.

Type of connections with the directories:

Direct two-way connection: PinMeTo pushes data to the directory and the directory pushes data to PinMeTo. We know what data is in the directory.

One-way connection: PinMeTo submits the data to the directory but has no feedback about if it's published, or what data is live.
