Online Junk Directories – The Cost of Doing Business

One of the annoying things about having a business on the web is finding your business “listed” on some useless online “directory” of organizations with the intent of snagging some of the traffic looking for your business.  I just did a search for “Kessler Freedman” on Google, and found us listed on all sorts of places where I’m sure we never submitted our information:

  • Nav123
  • Cortera
  • WeFollow
  • U.S.A. Business Directory
  • Mainkeys
  • Easyfind
  • Hotfrog
  • A-Z Business Finder
  • Akama

and so on.  That’s not all of them.

There’s not much we plan to do about it.  Sometimes I am curious as to the traffic of these directories, but it seems to me that’s it the inefficient and ineffective search engine searchers that end up there. 

On a side note, somebody somewhere entered our zip code incorrectly in one of these databases, and as the data was traded or sold or whatever, it continued, and quite a few of these useless sites say we are located in Mattawana Pennsylvania.  Nope, still in Mechanicsburg and Camp Hill, PA.  But close.
