2012 Top Business Directories in the UK

We have created a list of 60 + 1 business directories from the UK and analyzed them based on a number of criteria (PageRank, Alexa GB Traffic Rank, Sites in Google, number of monthly visitors). We have ranked them according to the collected Alexa data but this is not representative statistics.

The last column of the list indicates the change of Alexa Traffic Rank of those business directories that were analyzed last year and there are many other directories that have made it to the list in 2012 for the first time. As long as in 2011 we looked at 47 online directories, this year we have expanded our list to include a higher number of websites offering information on businesses.

Data collected on July 02, 2012

  6. This is the list of the highest raking 60+1 business directories in 2012, based on the data from alexa.com
    It might get on the list of 2013.
