The Importance of having a Local Directory Listing

The digital media explosion and the increasing popularity of smart phones has significantly changed the way many people use the internet. Google, Yahoo and Bing are tending to list local searches and maps above organic searches. Do you have a listing with any local directories or Google Places? It is free to add your website to most local maps and directories, although some charge a nominal fee for an optimised listing.

Google is reporting that about 20 percent of all searches on desktop computers are for local businesses. Search engines will first produce results that match from the local searches. This is to give the internet user the most appropriate results that they are looking for.  The  majority of  potential customers surfing the internet prefer using a LOCAL service.

Local Directory submission is crucial for maximising exposure and developing a strong local market for your product or service. Local traffic can also be achieved by optimising your website with locational key words. The combination of submission and optimisation gives your business an edge over your competition and raises your local profile.
