Our listings of sources of business information are not intended to be comprehensive. There is a heavy European bias but we do list sites that cover other areas of the world.

How are sites selected for inclusion?

Many of the sites are discovered during normal day-to-day searching and browsing. We also identify potentially useful sites via newsletters, press releases and suggestions from users and site owners. Sites are assessed on a number of criteria including depth of coverage, how up-to-date they are, accuracy, ease of use and accessibility, and unique features. A site may be included in more than one category.

Is there a charge for adding a site to the list?

There is no charge for including a site to our listings.

How long does it take for a suggested site to be listed?

It varies. If you suggest a site, it may be a week or a month before it is evaluated and added to the relevant section. We may not add a site at all - even though it may be a quality site - if it does not fit into any of our existing categories. However, such sites are kept on file and are periodically reviewed; they may be added at a later date if we create a new category that is appropriate for the site.

What are the selection criteria for the Day-to-Day Essentials?

This is a purely personal selection and is based on those sites that we use on a regular basis for routine tasks and administration, for example post codes, telephone numbers, train times.

How do I submit a site?
