As of 2015, a business can be added to Manta's online directory by clicking the "Add business" tab on the Manta home page navigation bar. The page that opens requests basic business information and leads to a second page on which a password is selected and the registration is completed. Premium subscriptions are available for users who prefer greater visibility and extended showcase pages, but the basic listing is free, as noted on the Manta website.Continue Reading
Businesses also appear on the Manta online directory without having been entered by any of a business's representatives. These listings show up on Manta based on public information regarding the business, such as trade records and government registrations. This type of listing can, however, be claimed by a representative of the business, and the company profile can then be updated to the business's liking. A "Claim this business" button appears on Manta business profiles that are initially based solely on public records.
Manta's Premium subscription plans remove third-party ads from the business's directory profile and enables the use of keywords to optimize search engine results. A listing of up to 300 products and services can be placed on a showcase page through a Premium subscription compared to a limit of three for the no-fee membership. Premium subscription plans can be paid for by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Diner's Club, as stated on the Manta website.Learn more about Business Resources
