When it comes to directories there are literally thousands out there. Most are not worth the time, even if they are free. But I’ve rounded up some of the best, particularly for NZ websites, as they have more of a local focus. You don’t have to add your website to all of them but the more of them you submit your site to, the greater the benefit gained.



  • PR6 Free or $9.95+GST per month for an enhanced listing, which is currently 50% off – great value
  • New PR5 free
  • Finda PR7 – free (bronze $295) – bonus is submissions get added to UBD (PR7) – you can use anchor text and if you purchase the bronze listing, they will remove the nofollow on the link (boosting the value of the link). Finda also have an agreement with Google for their map data, so this also feeds/gives a significant boost to local listings.
  • New Zealand directory PR5 – free with reciprocal (a reciprocal link is where you link from your website to them, which does devalue the directory linking a bit), paid $9.95 to $40
  • Zipleaf PR4 – free
  • IndexNZ PR5 $US5 submission fee
  • Yalwa PR5 free – allows you to insert html links in the description, so you can deep link into your website.
  • Website Directory PR5
  • nzsearch PR6 free
  • Whats on NZ PR6 free with reciprocal link
  • Hotfrog PR6 free
  • NZ pages PR6 free or $79 for premium listing
  • NZ webz PR4 new zealand Australia only – free – (ads on all pages)
  • BCLNZ PR4 $30 one off fee – same company as e-toolbox (deep linking allowed)
  • Netfinder PR4 free
  • Localbiz PR4 premium (with link) now free
  • Google Business Places A must have and it's free
  • Natlib directory PR7 free NZ Government link submission guidelines submit here
  • Zenbu PR5
