Tips and tricks for creating your business listing

Tip #1: Chose the most appropriate category

You may submit your website to 1 main category and up to 5 subcategories. Choose the category/subcategories that best describes your site, products and services. This will help consumers find your listing more easily. Each URL you submit comprises 1 listing. Do not submit the same URL more than once.

Tip #2: Clearly describe what you offer

Use an appropriate name for your site title, such as your company, product or service name. Irrelevant titles or titles that are too long will be edited or may cause your submission to be rejected. Also, use appropriate descriptions that will clearly indicate what you offer for your products or services. Overly promotional language may be removed or your submission may be rejected.
