Below are a few business-related directories we have listed ourselves on. Note: Some of these directories may require you provide their link on your website (link exchange) for them to continue to keep your link open on theirs. Depending on your comfort level, always check a directory first to see if they require a link back and then decide if you want to list with them.
Web Designs by LAO is featured on the Web Designers Directory. This is another web designer directory and does require a link-back to maintain a listing.
Brownbook.net, a free directory for use by any type of business. The directory includes connections for Facebook, if desired, as well as reviews by customers. We were impressed by the speed in which the link showed up on Google.

Our Directory Listings
Before putting ourselves on a directory, we always check to make sure the directory is not just a "link-generator". We try to list ourselves on a directory that will provide web design-related information to our visitors. NOTE: Links on a website should always be checked to make sure they still work. That will avoid the possibility of website pages not being indexed by search engines or frustrating your website visitors.
