Top Free USA Business Directories

Top Free USA Business Directories

Growing your online visibility via a local business directory listing (also known as citation building) is integral to your local marketing strategy.

Using business directory listings—like the ones below—will help to increase search rankings, build trust and authority with search engines, and give potential customers a greater chance of finding you online.

There’s a wealth of free business directory lists out there (many of which we’ve published ourselves), but we’re confident that this list of the top 50 is the very best place to start if you’re looking for free citations in the USA. If you simply want the best business directories in the USA, regardless of cost, we have you covered there too.

How do I get my business listed on free citation sites in the USA?

We’ve included links to each US business directory so you can go straight to it, create an account, and build your free US business listing. This usually takes around 15-20 mins to do per site.

Alternatively, you can build local citations the easy way by letting our citation specialists do the hard work for you. It’s super easy to do. Rather than spending hours going onto each site yourself, you create a free Citation Builder account instead. From here you select the sites you want to get listed on and our team will take care of the rest.
