Why a digital business directory listing is so effective
Research shows that nearly all new business will come via an online search using Smartphones, tablets & computers.
- Search engines rank the businesses they know most about and trust in their top listings. Their aim is to deliver a good user experience, and to do that, they constantly ‘crawl’ for other sources of business information on the Web to verify your data.
- In addition to providing search engines with a way to validate local business data, our directory links back to the business’ website. This natural, trusted backlink provides a local and relevant link that enhances your local SEO results in the SERPs.
- Our interactive directory platform also has backlinks to all social media platforms, an interactive map and trusted content information around your business, which further validates your business with Google (et al). This is not a static directory (most are).
- Google loves active hyperlocal directories with good written content. Our magazine content is laden with search terms for the area, is packed with quality hyperlinks to websites and will be favoured by search engines when potential new customers are searching online.
- Internet directories act as a verification source for your business data on Google et al. When a search engines can match specific business data from a webpage or business directory to the info they have on file, this serves to verify the information, which in turn makes your data more authoritative. Our directory listing allows logos, video, photos, descriptions and categorised listings which further enhance your search engine ranking.
