What are business listings?
Business listings are business profiles on directory sites such as Google Maps, Yelp, Yellow Pages, Foursquare, and many others. In fact, Incline Marketing tracks and builds out listings on over 75 business directories across the web. These listings are visited by consumers millions of times a year, so ensuring that your business profiles are accurate, informative, and updated often can strongly benefit your business, as well as your rankings on search engines.
Why are listings important?
Business Listings are important for a variety of reasons. Most important among them is lead generation. Imagine the frustration when a potential customer travels to the wrong address for your business, or calls the wrong phone number because the listing they viewed for you is incorrect. This problem can be avoided.
To Search Engines:
Nearly as important, however, is how search engines view your business listings. Accuracy and consistency in your business profiles across the web is absolutely a ranking factor for local search, so maintaining this presence is key to your online success.
