Your listing will be featured as a category sponsor top pick within your business category in unlimited cities or the entire state, or nationwide if you prefer. It will link directly to your business listing page. A banner at the top of your category page will separate yourself from the competition. It appears above all listing types including standard, featured and Web Portal sponsored listings. Banner Ad advertising will increase the click rate to your business page. This will help with your branding and give more visibility to a coupon or promotion that you may have. For mobile users, only your business will appear before you are needed to scroll down. Statewide banner ads insure every city in your state has easier access to your business. No other quality directory does statewide advertising for this low price.
Search engine websites like to build their database of local listings in part by the verifiable data they find on sites like Yellow Pages Directory Inc. Having local listings on web sites which contain your company name along with corresponding phone numbers, maps, and physical addresses make it highly likely that other sites will pick up this information and build listings based on these elements similar to the way Google Local does. All these locations and different categories will give search engines more keywords to pull results from. So, if your business qualifies for multiple categories and multiple locations, you want the search engines to recognize that. These ten additional categories will be a big piece of the puzzle to better Search Engine Visibility. All these categories and listings may require an edit or update in the future. Each edit requires contact with our customer support team, all of which requires a cost and expense on our part. On average, we find that each listing with categories requires approximately three edits per year. All these edits along with the additional categories would equate to about $1,200 dollars in savings. With any upgraded plan you get unlimited edits on your listing, category, and/or any of the websites we built for you.
Most websites charge $99 dollars or more for just ONE link similar to this and the majority of larger sites don't even offer this option.

You will also receive an internal link to your listing page on every single city page across the entire White Pages section, in your state. Your entire total "link" exposure would now be included on tens of thousands of pages (Yellow and White Pages) with all pointing directly to your website YP business listing. This will help you with your Google rankings and that is the most important thing in growing your business on the web.
