Regional Directories Online

One way of bringing traffic to the website or the vineyard is to be included in lots of regional directories.

Since the New York Times and Stephen Colbert announced the death of the white pages, it might be a good time to talk about the future of information directories and annuaires online.

So with companies refusing to deliver the white pages, let’s look at online alternatives.

Here are a few links to directories that list O’Vineyards.  Notice that they’re all pretty specific.  Deligogo only does food and wine.  Languedoc Midi Info is obviously based on Languedoc and Midi listings.  Best of Carcassonne gets ultra specific and only includes listings around Carcassonne.  Some of these directories charge you to be included.  Others allow anybody to sign up.  I think specific directories like this are cool because (a) they fill the role of the yellow pages so people can find your business and (b) they give you content-specific backlinks which help search engines define and highlight your site.

Deligogo – Local food and wine courses

Languedoc Midi Info – Getting more specific than Deligogo.  Midi-themed.

Best of Carcassonne – Ultra specific, but I can’t promise that the girl in the photo will be here. :)
