Business Directory Listing
What is a Business Directory?
A website made up of listing businesses and their contact information, mainly Name, Address and Phone Number, by category or niche. Think of this as an online version of the paper phone books we used to use.
Having a complete and powerful online listing across the most authoritative directories is not only smart it is requried. Having an inconsistent listing across the internet will be confusing to not only potential clients but, to search engines like Google.
We use your VERIFIED Google My Business (GMB) listing or Verified “Local” Facebook Business Page as the starting point. From there we can send the listing information to 9 of the highest authority and highly trafficked directories so that they all share the same information. This is crucial to your local listing success. If you are a Baltimore Maryland business you want to be sure that your local balitmore listings are correct and complete.

Business Directories & Google
Does my business listing in directories affect Google?
In short, yes. Google doesn’t just take your word (or your websites words) as gospel. Google checks your website NAP against other ‘known’ reliable and reputable sources like the top, authoritative local business directories. If there is any differences in these different locations Google is more likely to use the directories information even if it is wrong because Google sees the directory sites as being less likely to be sharing unaccurate information, in other words, the directory site is more authoritative than your own website.
