Rank Better & Encourage Interaction in Local Directories

Posted by: admin  /  Tags: , ,  /  Comments: 128

local directories

Why are local directories important?

Customer review sites are quickly becoming an important part of the research and decision making process when buyers decide to purchase a product or service. It’s not enough to just appear in these vertical directories, but companies need be maintaining complete, optimized profiles that rank well on these web properties as well.

Encouraging interaction on directories such as Yelp, Citysearch and Google Places builds consumer confidence and offers new channels for potential clients to find your business. There are also a multitude of specific directories that cater to lawyers, doctors, dentists, contractors, restaurants and many more. These directories often rank well for keywords related to your business where at times your website won’t. Review sites can offer a business greater reach, more exposure, increased relevance on the search engines, leading to more customers. These properties display important business information such as a business’s address, phone number, website and email. Directories can put a business’s information in front of targeted consumers, looking to purchase a product or service.

Many of these sites encourage interaction between the business and the customer. Not only can consumers write reviews about the business in many cases, but the businesses can also respond to the consumer comments as well.

How do you get people to write reviews?

How do you encourage interaction on these web properties, just ask. When you have a happy customer or client let them know how much it would mean to your business if they’d post a review. Put a countertop sign at your reception desk asking clients to post reviews and interact with your profiles. These tactics will help encourage interaction, further building your online presence.

With the recent unveiling of Place Search, Google’s new local algorithm, it’s more important then ever to build out these profiles or “citations”. They help to increase your relevance in the eyes of the search engines, further promoting your organic listing on the search engine results pages.

The majority of these directories are free to join and cost nothing to maintain. In essence, it’s free advertising for your local business. There’s no reason not to be taking advantage of these dynamic web properties.
