    Exclamation A list of Free Australian Online Directories.

    There has been quite a bit of talk about directory marketing of late, so I thought I would share a list of Australian Directories that was sent to me by Brendan from Exstatic Media.

    Directories are an excellent way to promote your business, and can also give you that saucy link juice that helps in search engine rankings..

    So Here is the list - in no particular order!

    http://www.trulocal.com.au
    http://www.shopseek.com.au
    http://www.webfind.com.au
    http://www.livepages.com.au/
    http://www.ausdirectory.org/
    http://www.hotfrog.com.au
    http://www.dlook.com.au/
    http://www.localbusinessguide.com.au/
    http://www.gumtree.com.au
    http://www.aussielocal.com.au/
    http://www.aussieweb.com.au/
    http://www.streetcorner.com.au/
    http://www.ineedto.com.au
    http://www.aussiepages.com.au
    http://www.startlocal.com.au/

    If you have any more feel free to add to the list!

    Nice list! I just went through and added my business details to each of them.

    All went well except one:
    www.livepages.com.au/ ... seems a bit dodgy. After registering for my "free" account, i get an e-mail titled "Order Confirmation & Tax Invoice"... it was a tax invoice with my details billing me for "Video Listing in the LivePages Business Directory for 52 weeks, expiring April 8, 2011" TOTAL PAYABLE 544.50
    "A 50% deposit ($272.25, including GST) is required before Video Listing production can commence. The remaining balance is payable when the Video Listing is published and live on the LivePages.com.au website. *Once video listing is live, the expiry date will be adjusted to reflect a full 52 week term."

    Anyone else get this? LOL seems a bit dodgy, needless to say I won't be paying a cent for something I didn't order.

    I have a child and parenting link directory at Child and parenting link directory | Giraffian but it is niche not general, and certainly not Australian only.

    The vast, vast, VAST majority of the traffic to that site is from overseas.

    You don't want to know how many Indian industrial links I get that I just delete ...

    i noticed the yellowpages have a free listing option yesterday, seems like more of a way for them to get people they can call up to offer their online yellowpages directory full service though.

    i use the majority of them all the time. they are a great way to look at competitive businesses and as a method of comparison. These days anything online is useful, saves the time of looking through thousands of pages

    I am wondering how successful it is a promotional tool. Has anyone have any stats say using google analytics that can say how much traffic the generate through directories?

    Would be interesting to know the stats. I will probably go ahead and register on a few anyway but would be great to know if its worth really spending some more time so i get the results.

    If no one does i will report back in a few weeks to let you know how i go.

    Some of the directories send you their own stats. Our business has a 100% click through rate from the Google one
