We work with you to properly list your business on Google My Business as well as all the major Local Directories and Citations
This gives your business a higher ranking in Local SEO as well as increased visibility. This is all part of our goal to grow your business.
Google wants to triangulate the address information on your website with the information on Google My Business, and then validate this with the information on your business from around the web. There are two key elements:
Your Name, Address and Phone number (+ your web address) is your location fingerprint. You need this to be consistent with your business information on the web.
These are listings of your business around the web. They can range from business directories like the yellow pages to mentions on social media platforms. You need to keep your business information consistent so Google can trust it.
We show Google where you are located by fixing the consistency of your local listings in Directories and Citations. It’s Easy to Overcomplicate This Stuff, So Think of it Like This:
- Google crawls the web looking at address details for your business.
- Google finds four different addresses.
- Google finds two different phone numbers.
- Google finds three variations of the business name.
- Google finds duplicate listings on some yellow pages style sites.
Google then does not know if you have one company or many. One office or many. The algorithm simply can’t trust the data. As part of our Local Search Engine Optimization, we look to increase your presence through local listings, maps, and reviews in search engines and major sites to make your business searchable and increase its visibility online.
