Local Business Listings

Good news for the environment…

The use of paper phone books is plummeting because the millions of people who used them are flocking to faster, far more convenient online local business directories or online  searches.

Good news for businesses…

Online map directories (like Google Maps and Yahoo Local) offer interactive maps to help consumers get from their homes or offices to the destinations they want. Using these sites, you can give people a lot of information about your business, even before they go to your website. (If you don’t have a website yet, we can help with that, too). And another perk: there are ways to manually optimize generic listings to raise yours to the first page so people are sure to spot it. Why not give your business yet another formidable foothold on the first page?

Having your business listed in many of the other directories (Superpages.com, etc.) serves several purposes:

  • People can search directly for your services
  • Search engines (Google, Yahoo, etc) want to see your business address and phone number listed in as many places as possible; your business appears more credible. It’s important to create (or claim) your listings to make sure the listed information is accurate.
  • Having many directory listings raises your map listings rank in search results.

Bad news for businesses…

If you’re not listed online, you lose out on all of the above.

But there are literally scores of business directory listings. It can take a lot of time to find them all and create your listings in each one of them. And you may have no idea how to optimize those listings.
