How do I add a listing?

Q: I would like to add my business, club, church, band, artist, event, organization etc etc etc  to the list.  How do I do that?

A: The Directory is a listing of resources of interest to residents, businesses, and visitors of Belfast, Maine. The directory is arranged by subject - from broad to specific. As more and more people, businesses and groups list we find need for new categories. So we may move you at some point into a more perfect category. The directory is maintained by editors who evaluate listings for inclusion in the directory. Adding is easy and not only that: it's the whole reason we do this! Please list!

We care a great deal about the quality of our directory. We're not a search engine and pride ourselves on being selective. Our goal is to make the directory as useful as possible for our users.
Step One

To add a listing you must register. It is free. Log in to the website listing using the Login link on the menu. If you do not already have an account, you can create a free account by clicking the Register button.

Step Two

Once logged into the website, do a quick search at the listings in the directory to make sure you’re not already listed in the directory. We have added many local listings already so please check.

NOTE: If you are already listed you may be able to CLAIM the listing using the CLAIM link in the listing details. To CLAIM: Click on your listing. It will take you to the next page of details where you'll see a CLAIM button. Click on it. Send us a quick note that you'd like to CLAIM your site. Once we approve it it's all yours to edit, own, manage, etc. If your listing is NOT already on the site proceed to the next step. 

Step Three

Identify the single best category for your listing by navigating through the directory from the Home Page. The directory has an array of subjects to choose from. You should submit a listing to the single most relevant category. We may add you to other categories or not add you to all the categories which you choose. (that's why we are called "editors".) 

Step Four

Once you've navigated to the best category for your listing, click the “Add your listing to this category” link and fill out the Add Listing form.

Descriptions should describe the listing concisely and accurately. They should not be too-too overtly promotional in nature. But a little artistic effort does always appeal. Please be aware that submitting a absurdly promotional description rather than an objective, well written one may result in editing. ("editor").

Once the form is filled out, click the Submit button.

After Your Listing is Submitted

A editor will review your submission to determine whether to include it in the directory. Depending on factors such as the volume of submissions, it may take a few hours to a few days or more before your submission is reviewed. Please only submit a listing to the directory once.

You will receive an email stating whether or not your listing was accepted for inclusion.All locals listings are included.... so far. 

Updating Your Listing

If a listing has been accepted for inclusion in the directory but you are dissatisfied with how the listing is described or titled, or at any time you want to add something , change something , tweak it, add a are welcome to go to the category where it is listed, you'll be recognized by the site as the OWNER and fill out the update form.
