The Importance Of Quality Directory Listings can be summed up as follows: Don’t You Want More Exposure For Your Business?
Correctly listing your business address is a vital part of the online jigsaw puzzle that is the internet. If you start with Google Maps, and you are not showing for your area, this is something you need to consider.
Those of you who are familiar with Google+ will no doubt already know this, but now you have become ‘Google Your Business’. When you create a business page from within your Google+ Page, it has merged Google Places within this area. This is designed as a linking factor so Google can understand you and show your business on a map within a search result for your domain name. This is a very simple procedure but can take up to 3 or 4 weeks to validate and get showing online.
After this, you should certainly establish yourself with directory listings that offer brief company listings and show your website link. Seek out directory sites with a high domain authority, create your listing then create a link from your site to that listing. This will ensure that you get the right amount of ‘Link Juice’ that your listing deserves.
Searching for your brand should now show a relevant map search, and Google+ link below your website, and the rest of your efforts will have more relevance in the search results.
