Frequently Asked Questions
What are online business listings?
Business listings are one of the most effective ways to improve visibility in local search, but business owners don’t have the time to create and maintain dozens of listings on social networks, search engines, maps and directories.
Online business listings are like phonebook Yellow Pages—but online. These listings give consumers information about where to find you, what time you are open, and how to to get a hold of you.
What are listing websites?
Listings websites are big online directories like Google My Business, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YellowPages.com, Bing, Dexknows, and dozens of others.
The more listings you have, the easier it will be for consumers to find you online.
Why are your online listings important?
Almost 90% of customers perform an online search before visiting a storefront or making a purchase decision. One of the best ways to help consumers discover your business is to ensure you have correct online business listings.
Without online listings, customers can’t find important information when they’re searching for you on Google, such as your address, your phone number, and directions to your location. That’s worse than not having your address in the phone book—that’s like boarding up your windows and turning off the lights!
