Google today can be a valuable tool when searching for something on the internet. However, we often don’t scroll past the first page of results. That’s were the benefit of local search directories come in to play. It’s just as important to be found on your local search directory as it is to be found on Google and utilizing the search directory can even help your business appear on Google results pages.
Local Search Directories are online versions of your local telephone directory. There are many directories out there, but for ease of use we will look at localsolution.com as the example:
Localsolution.com is an online directory which allows the business to take charge of their online listings, making sure all their information is correct and current. Below the main image is a tab: Add/Manage Business Listing. This tab allows a business to search for their listing and make any changes necessary to ensure their information is correct or add their listing if the business doesn’t show up in the system. Once the business has been found on localsolution.com, you can update your listing information, description of your business, services and brands offered and hours of operation. You can also select categories in which your business can be found by those searching.
We know how valuable it is to be found online, so make sure you are getting your business out there in as many places as you can. Local search directories make it easy to showcase your information and most of the time it’s free to do so. There are many online search directories that offer paid advertising as well if you want to take it a step further. Either way, having your information correct and current is the best step to positive results!
