    Business listing sites

    It is amazing how many FREE business listings there are.
    Do these sites rely on advertising revenue, bump ups and ad sense type income streams because of click through?

    For very many of them, that's the dream that got it started I guess.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Which of the free online listings would be the best options for listing in SA? I've found lots of them availble but I don't see the point in uploading our company info in all of them there is just way too many ( and I'm also kind of lazy when it comes to copy and pasting)

    Just do a few each day, or each week. You never know which cast will hook a big fish.

    Depending on the amount of traffic the business listing sites receive they would usually try to monetize their website with online business listings, adsense, featured ads, add banners etc. Like Dave said you could list your business on all of them only by doing a few a day. It really doesn't take that long to do and who knows maybe someone clicks on your listing and makes use of your services.

    Free business listing > client > Rxx,xxxx for a few minutes of effort? Besides that if they allow you to add your website address you could increase your google rankings a bit as well.

    If you really don't want to do it I'm sure you could find someone on Fiverr to do it for you for a few bucks.

    Good luck.
