What is local listing management?
Many of us rely on local listings every day to help us make decisions about where to spend our time and money. We go to Yelp to find the best sushi restaurant. We turn to Trip Advisor to find hotels and activities for our next vacation. And of course, we use mapping services like Google Maps and Apple Maps to direct us to all manner of local business. We find much of this information thanks to local listing management.
A local listing typically comprises a business’ name, address, and phone number, referred to collectively as “NAP” data. But local listings can, and should, include a wealth of other data, such as hours of operation, product descriptions, services provided and photos of a business’ interior.
There are thousands of local business directories across the internet. Many of them are niche directories that focus on a particular industry, such as home improvement, real estate, legal services, and more. While it’s important to manage your business listings on as many sites as possible, your main focus should be on the larger directories. Some of the top online business directories include:
- Yellow Pages (YP.com)
While it might sound challenging or time-consuming to claim and maintain all your business’ online listings, these citations can significantly simplify and speed up your approach to local and hyperlocal marketing. Fortunately, there are a number of tools that can make the process easier for you.
Our Local Listings services include: GOOGLE MY BUSINESS, CITATION ACQUISITION/CLAIMING, CONSISTENT NAP DATA and More…
GOOGLE MY BUSINESS
if you want the easiest possible way for your customers to find you, this is a good service to use. With Google My Business, you can make sure your company is on Google Search, Google+ and Google Maps — and your customers can interact with you more easily.
Claiming citations from portals such as Superpages.com and local directories can help give your business that much more legitimacy as part of your community — and that matters for a business competing in a local market as well as giving you a boost in the search engine rankings for your area.
CONSISTENT NAP DATA
NAP simply stands for “name, address and phone number” — and you’d be surprised how many businesses don’t have NAP data that is consistent across the web. Having an actual physical address and phone number listed in directories and other websites not only gives you a boost in your local organic search listings but also lends your business instant legitimacy.
You may not realize it, but your business information can be found all over the Web.

How We Succeed in Local Listings Management
Listings management is an ongoing process.
Stop the process and the errors come back. Without continuous monitoring, changes from third‐party sources can make it harder for your customers to find and contact you. In fact, on average, the business information for your small business could be changed as often as 61 times a year.
