My last post listed over 100 local directories where you can list your local business. Local directories such as Google Places and Yelp are becoming more and more important in ranking your website in the search engines. The problem with listing your business with all these local directories is that it is very time consuming submitting and completing each form for each directory. Plus, once you submit your listings it can takes weeks or even months for your listing to be approved.

Here is a list of important local directories where you can get approved within 2 weeks or less. They also happen to be some of the more important local directories. Often, being listed in these directories first can help speed up the process for being listed in all the other local directories. Here is the list. If you have others you would like to suggest please let me know in the comments area.
