Local digital listing management
Local Digital Listing Management is a Local SEO marketing tactic that ensures all your business locations and service areas are properly listed on online directories and search engines such as Google Business Profile (formerly Google My Business), Facebook, Bing Places, Yelp, and more.
As a local business, visitability is essential for success. Properly managing your business listings across multiple platforms and directories is the best way to increase your businesses’ visibility on the local and national scale. Search engines – like Google and Bing – now take into account a user’s physical location and IP address to provide them the most beneficial results. Optimizing your listings can ensure your business is shown as relevant, local and authoritative on the topics being searched related to your business.

As it stands, Google is the king of all listings and often sets the standards for local seo. Google’s standards for ranking high in local results is set into three main categories:
We work to optimize your Google Business Profile by updating content and business information, adding images, events, coupons and posts, responding to reviews and messages, adding keywords to listing titles and services and analyzing your listing analytics for additional areas of improvement.
Other listings & directories
Although Google is ‘king’ when it comes to listings and local SEO, that does not mean you should neglect any other relevant listings and directories. Bing, Apple maps, Yelp, etc. all offer valuable opportunities to spread your name, address, phone #, etc. throughout the internet. The more your information is online on relevant listings and directories, the greater chance you will reach your target customer. Some people prefer to use Bing or Yelp when finding businesses close to them and to analyze their credibility but if you are not on either of those listings, you may be losing out on leads and possibly customers. We ensure that your business information is consistent across all relevant listings and directories to your industry.
