Local Listings

Increase your business’s visibility in local searches.

Adding and enhancing your listings on local business directories allows you to attract more attention in your geographic area, provide valuable information and details about your business, along with promoting your online reviews. 

Local Listings OVERVIEW

Local listings are where you get found.

Popular listing directories like Google Maps are often the first place people go to find businesses in their area.

Ranking higher on these platforms can be massively beneficial for small businesses that rely on customers who live nearby. It’s important that all your business details and contact information is accurate and updated. Online reviews also play a big part in how new customers & clients initially perceive you. 

We can help you set up new listings, update current ones, fix errors like duplicate listings, rank higher overall, and improve your online reputation with more 5-star reviews.

Some of the top directories, most notably Google, let you post updates, promotions, and other news directly to your listing. This not only is a prime advertising opportunity but shows the platform that you're active and engaged which will increase your relevancy and ultimately, your ranking.

Local Listings Common questions

Commonly asked questions, answered.

Have a question we didn’t answer? Don’t hesitate to reach out and ask us directly! We’d love to hear from you. 

Absolutely, yes!

Google is the backbone of any local listing effort due to their search dominance. Google will almost certainly be your highest performing listing profile and should demand more attention and care than other profiles. 

The impact your Google listing has goes beyond just Google Maps but has an impact on your overall domain authority. 

Here are some important local business directories you should not ignore: 

  • Bing
  • Citysearch
  • Yahoo
  • YellowPages
  • Foursquare
  • Yelp
  • DexKnows
  • EZLocal
  • Superpages
  • Manta

Definitely. 

Local listings show search engines you’re legit and the higher volume of accurate listings you have makes you look that much more trustworthy. 

These play a big role specifically with local SEO.

Most commonly, inaccurate data on your profiles is outdated data. 

However, sometimes listing directories that try to pull data from other directories may make mistakes, especially if your name or address is similar to other businesses. It’s important to stay on top of your listings ensuring all your important business information is accurate at all times. 

The best thing you can do with a negative review is bury it with positive ones! 

With the negative review specifically, you should reply in a calm, professional manner but you should also try to learn from their feedback and use it as customer insight to improve your processes. 

You cannot remove negative reviews otherwise the entire platform would no long be trustworthy to customers. If you provide quality services & customer care, you only need to focus on quantity because the quality will work out over time.
