Why should I join?
There are many compelling reasons to become part of the Wolves Blog Wolverhampton Business Directory. Watch the video or read below for a detailed breakdown of the benefits.
Direct promotion on Wolves Blog
On the most basic level, if you’re in the directory you can be found by Wolves Blog readers actively looking for your products or services. We’ve been around since 2009 and welcomed over half a million unique visitors to the site. The blog has contributed and been named-checked in The Telegraph, The Guardian, Sky Sports, Goal and many other top-quality publications, marking us out as one of the leading UK football fan websites.
And this association with an established editorial product is what sets the directory apart from others and maximises the value on offer.
Unlike other business directories, you’re not hidden away. Each business category will be proactively promoted on the main Wolves Blog website twice a season in match previews and reports to ensure you’re getting seen regularly beyond customers that directly search out the directory.
Search engine optimisation (SEO)
For any business looking to promote their own website on Google, you need backlinks from other websites to gain prominent rankings. As a Wolverhampton-based business, the link you’ll receive from Wolves Blog to your website will be highly beneficial to your search engine optimisation efforts because:
a. It will be viewed as highly relevant by Google due to the geographical connection. This means it will also be particularly valuable for promoting your Google map listings.
b. The site has been around for well over a decade and Google values longevity. You’re also benefitting from the link power generated by our own association with the named publications above.
Adding another listing to Google

Frequently asked questions
I don’t see my business category listed on the main directory, what do I do?
Not a problem. Just fill out the form below and under ‘Business Type’ share what you feel is the most relevant description and if a category doesn’t exist, we’ll create one.
The relevant category to my business is currently blank, why is this?
We’re currently trying to populate the directory so it’s not uncommon for a category to be blank. It does mean you would be the first listing in your sector and as such would also secure the top listing for the first 12 months even if competitors decided to join at a later date.
Is there a limit to how many businesses can be added to any given category?
No, in the interests of fairness we will keep all categories open to any legitimate business that wishes to be part of the directory. There’s no exclusivity.
Is there a limit to how much information I can display on my listing?
No, you can send as much information as you like. However, only the first 50 words or 300 characters will display on the category page. Anything above this will be on your dedicated listing.
Will reviews of my business be permitted?
No, the directory will just be a simple listing and no reviews (good or bad) will be permitted.
My business isn’t located in Wolverhampton, but can I still join?
As long as your business can service people in Wolverhampton, you’re eligible to join the directory. Businesses in Wolverhampton will get the greatest benefit but those from further afield will still get good value from the promotion.
How can I ascertain the value of my listing?
We can tell you how many people have viewed your category and/or listing page over any period of time. Contact us anytime for this information. We also encourage businesses to supply exclusive offers to Wolves Blog readers to help qualify the directory as the source of any business generated.
I no longer require my business listing, how do I remove myself from the directory?
Simply contact us directly with the request along with some sort of proof you’re connected to the business and we will happily remove the listing.
What is the refund policy?
