During our days training we touch on the power of web directories.
The way Google sees it is this:
If you have bothered to list your business on Online directories you must be real and the more you add to the better. The search engines see the link back to you as link juice and a postive step up towards the top of their search engine pages.
There are a plethora of web directories out there, and you will come across the ones that ask for a reciprocal link, in other words they will only publish your information if you add a link to them in the code of your website, and most business owners are not tech savvy, so this is a waste of time.
