A business directory is an online list of businesses within a particluar niche, location or category. One way local businesses can get found by online searchers is through inclusion in business directories.
Does it seem like everybody has a directory now days? It might seem that way because there is a huge advantage to using the interlinking systems of the World Wide Web to increase your chances of receiving that all important phone call from your next big client. The days of phone book advertising is long over. Those avenues are generally very expensive and results are even more difficult to track. Today is the age of Social Media, but don’t forget the value of Local SEO Ranking. The list below will help you get started on your journey to become more relevant in this world. I mean this quite literally, Google scans the web for keywords that you’ve selected when you are searching for something. But they do much more than that! They check each term for it’s “relevant” characteristics. For example: 530 Process Servers, 2261 Saint George Lane, Chico, California 95926, (844) 530-7378 shows up under the legal catagory 50+ times accross different “relevant” platforms. You will show up ahead of your competitor that didin’t read this article. Share with your friends.
