Hi all,

 

We have regularly posted the content in classifieds and business directories. But we can't find the visitors through those channels, Why?. If anyone has a good idea to resolve this problem kindly share your ideas with us.

I'm not sure I understand the question, are you asking why you're not attracting customers from directory listings? 


I think there is such a flood of these about and everyone puts up a advert of sorts it is really hard to stand out. It's not easy getting found via the internet these days as google has become so strict on how people search things ( I know as I am battling myself

It’s great to hear the opinions of people.

But, there is a massive difference when when you are experienced in creating ads.

I am, interested in finding out what kind of business you are advertising.

Because, some platforms are not suitable for certain types of businesses.

Agreed! And without the context of the type of advert and where it is going we can't judge it.

 

Remember to target the audience you want, not just everyone.  


Some of the reason why we are not able to find traffic through Business Directories are:

  • Business directories have become spammy: As people always want the quick and easy way, they have started automating processes. With increase in automation, more SPAM came along. These types of things are not at all convenient for Google.
  • Business directories are not managed anymore: Even if you do find a good web directory, chances are that nobody is going to answer you.
  • Business directories are not efficient: Even if you manage to get some business directory listings, they will probably have a very little impact.
  • Google penalizes you: Of course, the biggest issue with web directories these days is that your website can get penalized if it tries to trick the Google algorithms.

Why would just listing your business on business directories get you penalised by Google?
