In previous articles, we’ve emphasized how crucial it is to build local citations and NAP (mentions of your name, address, and phone number) to improve local search engine rankings for your cannabis dispensary. To make things easy, we’ve researched and created the most comprehensive list of cannabis business directories that are suitable for submission. Domain rating ranks all the websites according to Ahrefs, which shows how high the backlink profile of the domain is on a scale from 1 to 100. Backlinks from sites with high domain rating carry more “weight.” Most of the directories are nationwide, but a select few are only available in Colorado.
Based on the data from Ahrefs, the cannabis information resource Leafly is ranked as the most valuable and authoritative among cannabis business directories, with Weedmaps coming in second. Leafly’s extensive resources of information catapulted its monthly organic traffic to 2,000,000 visits per month, surpassing any other website in the cannabis industry. In comparison, Weedmaps received 21% of that amount at approximately 420,000 monthly organic visits per month. Keep this in mind when prioritizing your marketing budget for directory listings. Leafly and Weedmaps both charge between $1000-$3000 to be included in their directory with options to be included at the top of their results based on your geographical region.
