Creating local listings is an effective way of introducing geo-targeted data to the search engines. Of course, creating and managing a large number of your business listings, profiles, and accounts can be troublesome and time consuming. Have you ever come across a directory website with a business listing that has your company information on it? It happens all the time, maybe your information is old, or incorrect. How do you setup your local listings?
What “Local Listings” are:Local Listings are the websites that appear to have information about your business, service, or product. Some of them publish this info without asking your permission. In many cases, the information is outdated, incorrect, or just plain wrong. It’s a good idea to claim, signup, and modify those listings so that they reflect accurate information and valuable backlinks. Some examples are Yelp, MapQuest, City Search, Yahoo, Merchant circle, and more.
