So you have a new website…now what?

As a follow up to the 12th step in the SEO Checklist for Your New Website, I recommend adding your site to the following 8 Free Business Listing Websites: Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yelp, City Search, Merchant Circle, Trip Advisor and DMOZ.

You will be asked to create a business profile allowing you to add a brief description of your business, a link to your website, your contact phone numbers, a contact person, your business logo, photographs highlighting your business, hours of operation as well as a few other business specifics.
