Local Search Terms

Verified Listing: Basic business information is checked and verified across the Internet to ensure the business name, address, phone numbers, categories and brands carried are consistent on all major search engines and directories. 

Submission to Listing Directories: The verified information is distributed to numerous listing directories.

Submission to Data Aggregators: Search engines and directories such as Yahoo, Bing, Citysearch, Yelp, Foursquare, GPS providers, Maps, etc., update their databases by using a “Data Aggregator.” Your business information is submitted as an audited listing and will receive a high confidence rating by these search engines and directories, ensuring your accurate business information is delivered to your potential customers when they perform a local search on their PC, smart phone, or GPS. This ensures your business is listed consistently with the correct business name, address and contact numbers on approximately 85% of the local search engines and directories.

Completion Report: A report is provided, detailing the actions carried out. This is normally available within four weeks of contract start.

Visibility Report: The visibility report will show how visible your business is to potential customers looking for your products and/or services.

Claimed Profiles: Major search engines and directories provide a landing page for each business listed in their database. Profiles are claimed for the business on the major search engines and directories, including Google, Yahoo, Bing and approximately twenty other major local search engines and directories, including Citysearch, Local.com, etc., plus some industry related medical and travel review websites, where applicable..
Reviews: As most satisfied and happy customers do not think of writing a review about their experience, the majority of online reviews given to businesses therefore, are negative. We provide businesses with a hardcopy review template that they can use to get handwritten positive reviews from their customers. These reviews are then displayed in image and text format on the Internet and posted on review sites. These will be picked up by other review sites and displayed as positive reviews on the business listing, providing a positive image to potential customers. The basic package includes posting up to 5 reviews and obtaining up to 5 citations per month. Our Local + package includes 10 reviews and 10 citations per month.

Citations: Citations, or “backlinks” are one-way links from search engines, directories, industry related websites, associations, etc., to the business website or profile page. The more citations a business has, the more important it appears to the major search engines. The more important a business appears, the higher it will be displayed when a potential customer is searching for the product and/or service of that business.

Blog: A blog is setup for the company.

Video: If the company already has a video, describing its services, this is posted on major video websites such as YouTube, etc. If the company does not have a video, we will create a 30 second video with images taken from the business website, or with images provided by the business. The video will have a voice over describing the products and services displayed on the website or provided in text format by the business.

Facebook Page: As additional cost options, we can setup a company page on Facebook and provide a custom designed Facebook page, if required. Please contact us for more details.
