Nowadays in their ranking of websites search engines give far more weight to local listings and their authority. These local listings consist of maps with directions, contact details, hours of operation, and a description of the business. Local listings and directories on Google are called Google Places; for Bing it is Bing Local and for Yahoo it is Yahoo! Local. Having and maintaining a prominent position on these directories determines to a large extent how much traffic your site will receive.
Further, these directories now contain reviews and testimonials from consumers. Businesses’ reputation is now online for all to view.
Accordingly, to reman ahead of these and subsequent changes we have added Local Buzz to all of our strategies, offerings and solutions as it is a necessity in today’s online world. We also connect your website so as to harness social media such as Facebook and LinkedIn, along with many others.
