LOCAL LISTINGS

“We help Customers Find Your Business, Bing, Google Maps, & Increase Your Profits”

Local listings are generally described as mentions of your business name, address, and phone number on other webpages and internet business directories, even if there is no link to your actual website. 

A good example of a listing could be an online directory where your business is listed – just like the old Yellowpages propping up your coffee table.

Additionally, it can be a local business association or even a chamber of commerce, where your business information can be found, even if they are not linking at all to your website. These listings that are in your local area can many times be the most powerful as they are more geographically relevant to your business.

FACTUAL

Compared to the above 2 Factual is a smaller player but still has an inside feed directly to Apple, Bing, TripAdvisor, and others.

If your business information is incorrect at any of these 3 major providers, it may override what the major search engines have in their own database. And if you’re not included in the databases of these major providers, you might not be able to rank as easily in Google, Yahoo, and Bing.

Listings are a key component of the ranking algorithms of the major search engines. All other things being equal, a business with more Listings will generally have better rankings than those with less citations.

Listings from well-established and well-indexed portals, help increase the degree of certainty the search engines have about your business’s contact information and categorisation.

Listings can be especially important in easier niches, (like plumbing or electrical contractors) where a large number of businesses don’t even have websites themselves. Since there is no other information out there, Google, (and Bing/Yahoo) will return search results based on whatever information they are able to find!

Listings also provide validation that your business is part of a larger business community. It’s going to be difficult for someone to fake their membership in the local chamber of commerce or in a city business index, and even more difficult to be written about in a local online newspaper or popular blog if they are not who they say they are.Listings, (and furthermore links) that come from these websites can drastically improve your rankings in local search results. Let your potential clients know where you are at
