Wonderful Plugin For Creating a Link Directory Website

I was looking for a plugin that would allow me to easily build a link directory into the main feature of a WordPress install. Many others on the market looked far too extravagant for what I was looking to build. I wanted a clean interface with easily searchable / filterable entries and Simple Business Directory provided that.

The price was very reasonable and I found it quite straight forward to setup and start creating the site, adding in my links.

Getting Started

Create Business Categories

Choose a business niche you want to curate business listings for. Create a Category for that topic inside Simple Business Directory. Categories help you organize your Link Lists in back end and easily show them in any page.

Create Lists

A List is comprised of many business listings. Each list entry can have an image (usually site logo), site URL, a short description, phone number, full address, facebook, yelp, twitter links etc. You can add as many links under one list as you want.

Multiple Lists

If you want to show only a few links then one list is enough. But SBD shines when create multiple Lists with 10-20 listings under each and assign all lists on the same topic to the same category.

Pick Style, Publish

Go to any existing page/post or create a new page/post from WordPress backend. Open the [SBD] shortcode generator from your visual editor, choose your options, generate the shortcode and publish. Voila, your business directory is now live with a gorgeous looking template.

Rapid, Friendly, 24/7 Support

We place immense value in relationship with people who use our products.
