Submit Your Free Business Listing To The GingerHippo Directory
Our business listings are absolutely free. So, what’s the catch? There really isn’t one. Are we planning on selling your information to 3rd parties? Absolutely NOT! Are we going to fill your inbox with junk emails 10x per day? NEVER! So, why are we offering to do all of this work for free? It’s actually quite simple. Building backlinks to your website should be the single biggest priority for your website, and we are here to help you with that mission.
Okay, you got us. There are a few catches to this offering. The first catch is that we give dofollow backlinks for premium listings, who have given us a link from anywhere on their website. If you just want your business listed in our directory and don’t want to give us credit, we will be happy to list your website with a nofollow backlink. This isn’t meant to strong arm you into giving us a backlink, rather appreciation for helping us in return. After all, we’re trying to accomplish the same thing with our authority as you are.
What are the restrictions for getting listed? There are actually a few restrictions for being listed. First and foremost, your business must fall into one of the categories listed on our directory, and must fall into Google’s content guidelines. Lastly, our directory is for United States businesses only. Please don’t try to game the system, as our listings are verified and entered manually, in an effort to provide an outstanding service to the digital community.
Still need to know more, before making a decision to get a free directory listing? We understand, completely. Please check out our FAQ page.
