GeoDirectory is an outstanding WordPress Business Directory Plugin. It helps visitors to your Geo Directory website discover businesses through their listings.

No matter what you need to build, be it a City Directory, a Job Board, a Real Estate listing directory, or a classified website, GeoDirectory turns any WordPress theme into a robust search network for users.

Add all your business listings at once and tap into an impressive set of blocks, shortcodes, and widgets to set up intuitive, location-based website directories.

Do it all stress-free and in style with 100% compatible WordPress page builders like Gutenberg (Kadence WP, Astra, Neve, OceanWP), Elementor, Bricks, Divi, Beaver Builder, and Breakdance!



GeoDirectory is a robust and scalable WordPress directory plugin. It offers advanced features tailored for listing websites. Its intuitive design and extensive customizability make it a top choice for professionals seeking a reliable WordPress directory solution.



👉 Superb plugin!
Look no further than this plugin for a directory website, it’s fantastic. I looked at Directorist first and spent a good amount of time setting that up to find out their search function only checked the post title and >none of the tags or categories. Useless! GeoDirectory of course checks pretty much every field so your users can find every listing with ease.

But that’s a relatively small plus point. The main selling point is the customization you can achieve. You can build your own layout using a page builder and insert the various fields wherever you see fit. It’s >so flexible and if you run into a support issue, the team are always on hand to help with responses in just a few hours (and at weekends).

You will need to invest some money to buy all the necessary add-ons that make this plugin so powerful, and you will need to spend a good amount of time working out how to build it how you want it, but it’s well worth it, and the results speak for themselves.

There is documentation to help you set everything up and I think the team will admit it does lack in places but when you get quick support responses, it’s not an issue.

Overall this is the perfect choice if you’re thinking of building a directory site. No need to look elsewhere.

👉 Unbelievable plugin
This is the first business directory plugin I’ve ever used and I’m amazed about what it can do. I had reviewed several other directory plugins, but this one serves all of my purposes. There are so many options available for everything imaginable. They also have tons of add-ons to do even more that are part of the membership package I signed up for. Something like this normally would cost tens of thousands to have this much functionality. I highly recommend. Their customer service is very responsive as well and knowledgeable.

I have been using this plugin for more than 1 year now. There are many other plugins with which you can also create different directories and listings. But the decision to find the right plugin has an impact for years, because you don’t necessarily want to change again at some point. But the functionality of Geodirectory is outstanding. It has a well-thought-out concept that can be extended with additional tools to suit almost all your needs. A plugin is only as good as its subsequent support. For a non-programmer, it is important to have someone at your side who can quickly find the right solutions. And I can only say the best about this support. You are never left alone. And there are several highly qualified specialists who very quickly look for an adequate solution. It was the right decision to go with Geodirectory and after 1 year I would do it again and again. Thank you!

Thank you, GeoDirectory Support. The plugin is on a level all its own, and I continue to discover how much more it can do. Every time I run into a snag or don’t know how to do something, GD Support is right there to help me. I just can’t say enough good things about the plugin and the support.

Support was very quick and got the issue resolved. Great service. Well done
13 juni 2024
Hi – we have used the plugin on a couple of sites and it does exactly what we require. It did take us some time to configure and we did need to call on assistance. Assistance was rapid when we requested it and the issue was solved. If we used the plugin more often, then maybe we would know all the ins and outs.
12 juni 2024
GeoDirectory Support team are amazing! very helpful and quick to respond!
