How can we help you?

Neighborhood business directory

Last Updated: Mar 20, 2018 11:31AM PDT
We’ve heard from members that they’d like to support their neighbors who own or operate businesses. To make this easier, we’ve added a new tab to the "Neighbors" section called "Businesses," which lists the neighbors in your neighborhood who provide services (like dog walkers, tutors, babysitters, and real estate agents).

Example business directory:​

To learn more about their services or availability, you can click on the green "Message" button to contact them directly. 

Why doesn't my Business Page appear in the directory?

If you've already claimed your Business Page and it doesn't appear in the directory, there could be a few reasons. 

     1.   You haven’t updated your business profile or received a recommendation

To be listed in the directory, you must have a photo and greeting message for your page, and have received at least one recommendation from a Nextdoor member. 

     2.   You are not operating your page as an individual

At this time, the directory only lists neighbors who provide services as individuals (operating under their own name). Neighbors who own or manage companies can also claim Business Pages, and, in the future, we may expand the directory to include these businesses as well. For the time being, the directory will list only individual service providers, but any Business Page can still be found in the Recommendations section (assuming it has been recommended by a neighbor) or through search. 

Example of page claiming:

     3.   You did not claim your Business Page using your personal account

At this time, to be listed in the directory, you must have claimed your Business Page using the same email as your personal account. This is because right now, if you claimed your page with a different email, we have no way to link your business account to the residence in which you live. In the future, we plan to make this possible.

How will neighbors find out that I’ve been listed in the directory?

After you confirm that the information on your Business Page is accurate, click on the green button that says “My info looks good.”

We will then announce you in your neighborhood news feed to let your neighbors know (see example below). If there are many neighbors in your neighborhood that have also recently been listed in the directory, we will gradually announce a few of you at a time.
