After an initial offline trial period, our new NL Business Directory has been launched online.
For our visitors, this represents a new, up-to-date web source of commercial services they may need at some point. For the companies listed, it offers an opportunity to share in our good positioning with the major search engines and increase their web profile accordingly. And finally, it offered us the chance to rework our existing Links section, where it was becoming more and more difficult to separate the listings of commercial links from purely informational ones.
And the good news for our visitors and advertisers is that we intend to monitor and test the Directory fully for some time, so it is completely free of charge!
Anyone can request a link for a company which they wish to recommend. If accepted, such companies will receive a basic listing, including the name of their company on their particular category index page, with a link to a page containing their web address.
Any representative of a company may apply to us through the signup form for a premium listing. This gives an enhanced listing in the category index page with a short description of their work or services and a link to their own dedicated company page in the Directory, which lists full contact details and a few paragraphs of text (all of which can be done by us for the client) along with a banner or image, if available. There is also of course a prominent link to the advertiser’s web address.
Direct links – good SEO
The links we place are direct. This means no redirections or statistics-gathering, again, good for your web profile.
We hope our visitors enjoy this new resource, and wish all the participating advertisers success with their business!
