Web Directory Construction and Maintenance
Gold Coast Media has significant experience in building web directories. Our ever increasing portfolio of web directories includes Catering 4 Weddings, Mortgage Lenders and Brokers, Photographers 4 Weddings and the Chocolate Fountain Directory. Web directories are typically quite complex to construct and build, they represent a challenge in terms of design, construction and maintenance as well as web directory search engine optimisation. The latest additions to our portfolio include the Find Solar Panel Installer directory, alongside a suite of new alternative energy directories which have been recently completed providing: Green Deal Advisors, Green Deal Installers and Green Deal Providers which, between them, cover the three main services as a part of the new Green Deal Scheme initiated by the Government.

The web directories themselves have to be constructed using a bespoke CMS system to minimise the level of maintenance over very large sites. The CMS systems themselves have to be well constructed and accurate. The web directory design also requires a lot of hard work incorporating accurate and simple to use navigational systems for the end user, easy to find and use advertising features for potential clients and construction within W3C guidelines. The directory must of course provide the service to which it subscribes, providing relevant adverts with accurate information and contact details. Finally, the directory needs to be very well optimised, there is little point in having a low ranking web directory!
Do you need help creating a directory?
You think that you have a fantastic idea for a web directory and it will make your fortune! Our experience is that web directories are fun to build but they do take a lot of hard work and dedication. Only a small proportion actually end up being profitable and worthwhile enterprises but those that do work can provide an income in themselves.
Please contact Gold Coast Media if you need help or wish to start a web directory business. Our simple advice would be to find an area where there is little competition and where the competition that does exist could be beaten. Our second piece of advise is that you should start immediately, it is taking increasingly longer for the major search engines to register new sites, the sooner your directory is constructed and placed on the web, the sooner the search engines spiders start crawling it! Also, if your idea is really good, you should spend some time investigating and purchasing the optimal domain name, or allow Gold Coast Media to do this for you!
