Local listings are a great way to get your business listed high in the search results. Not only can the listing itself show up but it will also help your overall site rankings as well. A few of the main ones are:
- Google + Local (google places)
- Bing local
- Yahoo local
Set up Google places first and make sure to use a physical address if possible. Businesses with physical addresses usually show up higher in the Google local listings. Add photos, a video, fill out the profile completely, and choose the correct category. By making it a point each week to set up and verify several local listings it will help establish your online presence and solidify your search rankings.
