Fix Your Local Listings
Did You Know...
One of the most important elements when it comes to YOUR website showing up on the first page (or two) in search engines is the accuracy and consistency of your business' contact data? You probably were not aware of that. Well, it is a factor when it comes to local SEO (Search Engine Optimization). You what your business name, address, and phone number the same across many, many sites.
If you still don't know what we are talking about, consider this, you business is listed on the Internet in more than 50 websites. You probably didn't put it there, this information comes from public records, directories, and advertisements. Now, ask yourself this... since you did not put that information out there, is it accurate? Does it have your proper address? Does it have the name of the company correct? Is your phone number correct?
If you don't know, see the Check your local listings below to run a FREE analysis report. This report will go out on the Internet and check these listings.
How do you fix your listings?
As we mentioned, it is important that you fix these listings across the Internet. In order to do that, there must be account for each of the sites, which means a separate username/pw will need to be created when you go to the site and claim your business listing.
Now, you can do this yourself. The cost to claim these listings is FREE or nominal price, but we estimate you will spend about 20 minutes with each site and our service manages 45 sites at the moment. So, you will probably have about 900 minutes or 15 hours in claiming and checking these sites. Once you have these setup, you will then be spending some time checking each site for any comments or questions that visitors may post. Each one of these directory sites has some kind of social media component to them and you want to make sure that you stay on top of all of the postings about your business on the Internet. So, each month you will have to log into each of the different sites and monitor the postings.
Another option is to pay an employee to do it for you. Again, you will have about 15 hours, so at the current minimum wage of $8.15 /hr. An employee earning minimum wage, that's roughly $122.25. The only drawback there is, it takes your employee away from other duties and you have to trust that they will accurately put the same information on each site. Again, you will have to have them monitor the sites for you each month as well.
The last alternative, is to hire a company to do it for you. This is where eYourSocial.com Directory Listing service comes into play. What if we could take care of all of this for you for a nominal monthly fee? Well, we can.
