Online Business Directories in 2011

From time to time we get down to see what kind of online business directories are out there, draw a table and analyze statistics a bit. If we take a look at our non-representative list of business directories posted in 2010 , you'll see important changes regarding the numbers.
While in 2010 we listed 28 nationwide and general directories, this year we have analyzed 47 online business directories. The directories presented are ranked according to Alexa and it's not necessarily accurate.
