GunLink Directory Helps Promote Firearms and Gear Related Businesses

The GunLink website has numerous facets, most of which have been added due to feedback from visitors as the site has grown.  In addition to a blog with firearms news, product reviews, event coverage and more, GunLink offers forums for general discussion (firearms related or otherwise), user generated reviews, a Second Amendment grassroots meeting place and more.  We are currently working on re-seller programs for firearms related software and other products and, again based on visitor feedback, are considering the addition of a classified ads section for firearms and accessories.

With all of these more recent additions, we don’t want to forget the single purpose for which GunLink was created; the feature from which our site takes its name.  GunLink started out as a business directory for firearms related businesses.  Basically, a link to guns …hence the GunLink moniker.

The Directory in the Eyes of the Visitor

Although many visitors come to the site to read the blog or to browse and participate in the forums, the business directory portion of the site remains accessible via the site’s main address at  The directory offers a variety of categories in which a business can be listed by the company’s representative; from FFL gun dealers and Concealed Carry (CCW) training courses to shooting ranges and software vendors.

For the visitor looking for a business, the listings are searchable in a variety of ways.  Users can browse the categories, view alphabetic listings or search by keywords with the option to narrow results based on location.  Once a user chooses a listing, they are presented with as much or as little information as the business owners choose to list in the directory.  This information includes everything one needs to connect with a business.

The Directory in the Eyes of the Business Owner

For the business owner wanting to make themselves more accessible, the GunLink directory offers various levels of listings.  Ranging from the FREE basic listings, which are ideally suited for brick-and-mortar operations, to the still very affordable premium listings, there is something for every business in the trades.

The Basic FREE listing allows business owners to enter the company’s description, physical address, telephone number and one business category – It’s like a Yellow Pages listing only more descriptive, more targeted and, of course, free.  At only $45 for a year-long listing, the premium directory listing allows a business owner to list much more information, including the business description, physical address, link to map and directions, contact name, telephone number, fax number, mobile (or other) telephone number, website link, email contact form, company logo and up to six business categories.  The directory also offers an intermediate listing level featuring a great compromise between cost and available information.

As if having all of this information about your business so readily available to your potential customers wasn’t great enough, the premium listing also offers an additional benefit:  a boost in your search engine results.  Premium listings in the GunLink directory come with a “do follow” link to your company’s website.  Do-follow links from other websites are a major contributor to helping your website show up higher when someone searches for relevant terms on search engines.

If you own or operate a business related to the firearms industry, or know someone who does, and would like an additional way to reach out and connect with past, current and future customers, check out the business directory at  If you don’t see your favorite firearms-related business listed, let them know about this valuable resource.  The more businesses that are listed in the directory, the greater the benefit is for everyone.
