Since we launched Weddings Abroad Directory, we have picked up many tips to help increase the SEO and online presence of our listed suppliers. Take a look at the following suggestions to enhance your listing:
Utilise the space
Our directory offers a full page to your business, so use it! We advise writing more than 300 words. Why is that? Well, a higher word count helps Google to better understand what your text is about. Generally speaking, Google tends to rank longer articles higher.
Be certain to include all relevant information in the text including the full range of services you offer and locations covered. Do not just rely on the categories/destinations chosen as if someone searches for your service but your location is not clearly mentioned in the text they may look elsewhere
We offer ten images per listing – up to 1MB per image! That’s more than most wedding directories. Make sure you add as many as you are allowed. Photos help prospective clients connect with your business and help you build credibility, showcase your offerings, personality, and set the stage for why someone should choose your company for one of the most important events in their lives. Use images of the venues, the weddings themselves and behind the scenes shots – it all builds a picture for future clients.
Please ensure your logo image is square as sharing on social media isn’t always possible with oblong images. Again make sure at least one of your ten images fits the standard criteria for all social media channels – we like to showcase several images from your listing!
Add ALL of your link options – such as facebook, instagram, X, email etc! Depending on your directory package maximise the link options we offer and use them all. Double check you are using correct links and enter the full URL. Also if you aren’t on LinkedIn consider signing up
Consider adding ‘backlinks’ to your listing. This is valuable because these ‘backlinks’ in a huge directory provide you with credibility in the eyes of the Google bots.This should hopefully get your actual website listed higher on the Google search results as opposed to just your listing. In a nutshell from your own website add a link to your directory listing – if you want an image to support that, we’ve plenty available just ask!
Make sure you follow us to check out our directory listing mentions – find your post, tag and share! Tag us in your Instagram posts too and we’ll reshare!

Do your weekly post using your Directory Listing URL. Target each post depending on the group and its members.

This is the only link you’re permitted to use when posting in our Facebook groups. Once your listing goes live, we’ll provide you with this URL for your convenience. Alternatively, you can find it yourself by navigating to your listing and looking at the address bar at the top of your browser. If you’re confused or have any questions about locating your Directory Listing URL, don’t hesitate to ask us for clarification.
Any directory member replying to a potential client post may add *Preferred Partner* or *Weddings Abroad Directory Member* – this also helps admin moderate the groups and comments.
