Location, Location, Location!


It's all about location. We have heard this before especially from real estate agents. But really, the same is true in the virtual world. The business location of stores, offices, merchants and service providers is paramount when searching for local products and services online. Think about the burden local search engines and map applications must have to keep up with the location data of every business. Imagine, for example, giving someone the wrong driving directions? 

  • There are over 14,000,000 businesses listed in the U.S.A.
  • It is estimated that 20% of business listings change every year.
    • Category, company name, address, location, website, phone, hours, business descriptions, products/brands/services, offers, discounts, etc.
  • That is 2.8 million listing updates annually.

This presents a real challenge and there is not much room for error. With this much information influx, the search engine algorithms must take directory listings and business profiles into account as ranking factors. Those businesses whose Internet listings are consistent and prevalent seem to earn points while listings that are outdated, incomplete, missing or duplicate appear to have a detriment.


A whole new industry called listings management, location management or reputation management has flourished in the past 5 years. Why? Because it is easier than ever to automatically syndicate business content and directory listing information across 350 to 400 Internet sites, local search apps and navigation systems. This beats the alternative of trying to handle this huge task manually or by yourself.

When choosing an SEO firm, make sure they have the right solutions for managing the location information and directory listings for your business. It is widely recognized as a top SEO tactic for making websites more visible in local search.
