Local Search Matters!
• February 16, 2015
Recently we helped a client correct their address and phone number on several of their listings for local search. Local search listings provide geographic based search results. These listings include Google, Yahoo, Bing!, Yellow Book, Yelp, Manta, SuperPages, Facebook and Google+.
Unfortunately many Businesses don’t realize that they can take control of their listings and even though it’s often times not the easiest process, it’s well worth the effort. If you can just imagine the result of displaying an incorrect phone number on your website, the same can occur with your local listings, the loss of a potential sale.
Take a moment and search your business to see how your local listings stack up. Pay careful attention to make sure all of the listings are exactly the same, and correct. Conflicting listings confuse customers and may even reduce your Google search rankings. If you’re not happy with what you see contact us to learn more about our local listing package.
Hint: If your business has been at more than 1 address in the last 10-15 years, there is probably some incorrect information about your location floating around on the Internet somewhere!
