But, with so many of them out there, where are the best places to create business profiles online?

Places to Create a Business Profile Online

Backlinks to your website from business profile sites are extremely valuable for "SEO Juice". The better the site you link from to your website(s) is also important. Challenge is, each one is a little different, and each one may require a different verification process and/or charge you a small fee, (although most are free and then they try to upsell you).

The most frustrating part is if you are not familiar with the business profile site, you can spend an hour creating your profile only to find out at the end there is a catch. You may discover at then end of the registration process that they will not allow a link to your site without a small fee. What a waste of time.

So, to make this simpler for you, here is a list of sites that you can use to create business profiles without any "catches", or things you may want to know before you create the profile.
