Local Search: The Difference Between Having Correct Local Search Business Listings vs. Incorrect Local Search Business Listings

Local search is taking over the way people find your business. More and more people are using mobile devices, in real-time, to find exactly what they want, how they want it, when they want it. The scary part is that most businesses do not have correct local search business listings.

I write this article to bring awareness to your business, and to ask you to correct your local search business listings today. Try typing your business address into Google and see what comes up, if the major local search sites, such as Google Places, Foursquare, Yelp, SuperPages, Citysearch, WhitePages, MapQuest, Google Maps, and some of the other major local search sites aren’t showing results for your business on the first page of Google, you most likely need to correct your local search business listings.

I’d say there are about twenty major local search sites that you absolutely need to make sure your business information is correct on. For your easy viewing reference, I’ve listed the twenty major local search sites along with the links here:


The reason why you want to have your information correct with the twenty major local search sites is that other sites pull data from these primary sites. This means that if your information isn’t correct from the beginning, it’s only going to get worse. The good thing is you can do something about it, my suggestion is that you either go to all twenty major local search sites and update your information yourself, or you pay someone like myself to do it for you. If you’re interested in having me update your local search business listings, please email me directly for pricing and details.

The part that I personally like the most about local search business listings, is that the top twenty major local search business listing sites are all free!  Yes, they all offer premium plans, which I highly recommend you review, and they all offer premium back links to your site as well.

To wrap this article up, this means, for free, your business can get listed properly with the twenty major local search business listing sites, and your business can get twenty premium backlinks. Wow, that’s providing a big splash for your business, I know it did for mine.
