Which Local Directories should you list your business on?
The first thing you should do is do a quick search on Google using your industry. Visit each local directory listing to claim and update your business information such as your business name, phone number, address, hours of operation, and images/videos. Your business should always have accurate, complete listings on key sites like Google, Yahoo, Bing, and Yelp. But, those are not the only sites you should be on, your business should be listed on as many industry specific websites across the internet.
To determine the top local directory listings for your industry, you can perform a search for your service offerings to see other local directories that Google is displaying on the first 5 pages of the search results. Visit each local directory listings to claim or add your local business information and be sure to keep track of usernames and passwords.
Warning, this tactic can only show you a portion of the local directories listings you may want your business listing on. Once your local business listings are claimed, you will need to review and maintain them on a quarterly basis to ensure they always contain the latest information on your Company.
