Tips for Effectively Promoting Your Business Listing

Making Sure Consumers Find Your Business:

When consumers are searching for information on a business, the greater number of times your listing is found, the more likely you will be chosen over a competitor. People looking for service providers have many choices before them. Making it easy for people to find your Yellow Pages listing can help ensure consumers choose you. Below is a snap-shot of how your business can appear in Google by simply promoting it. This is likely to happen to some extent on its own, but linking to your page helps speed this process up, as well as helps your page appear closer to the top when people search for it.


Establishing Multiple Local Listings:

Search engines like Google build their database of local listings in part by the verifiable data they find on the web through various Yellow Page sites like this one. Having local listings on web sites which contain company names along with corresponding phone numbers, addresses, and maps make it highly likely that other sites will pick up your information and build listings based on these elements similar to the way Google Local does this below.

Using The Permalink Option To Promote Listings:

Listings can be promoted by linking to them on your web site or social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, etc.. Search engines view a link to a web page as a vote for that page. If search engines find that many places link to a particular page, they determine that the page is valuable. Each link to a web page contributes a little bit of value in the search engine's algorithm, which helps contribute to which pages come up in search results. Using the permalink feature below will help you add a link to the page on this site which contains your business information which, in turn, helps ensure your listing appears above other local competing pages.

To use the permalink feature, visit your listing and copy the link for use anywhere you decide.

Using The Social Networking Widgets To Promote Listings:

It is now more important than ever that your business information appear within social circles. Search engines continue to find new innovative ways to 'measure' the information they find. Having your business information appear within social circles is important. For instance, Facebook's like button is shorthand for "this is pretty cool" or "you should check this out." Click like button to publicly give something your stamp of approval. Click or Tweet to post your listing on Twitter too. Search engines do view these votes to determine a pages importance. Each vote counts and contributes to how search engine algorithms rank your page in search results. Using the social networking buttons will help friends, contacts, and others on the web find your business.

To use the social widgets, visit your listing, then click the buttons near the right side of the page.
