What is a Business Directory Site?
Business directories are part of the IYP or Internet Yellow Pages. We used to have just the yellow pages, now there are a bunch of websites that provide a similar service.
So how does getting listed in these business directories help get your business found online?
Picture this, a prospect searches online for your business or for a product or service you provide. Amongst the search results are listings from these business directories.
These sites allow users to leave reviews too, so it’s like a 2nd search engine in a search engine with ratings.
But it doesn’t stop there.
When you have your business listed on these sites, this creates what are called citations.
Citations are any mention of your business online, with or without a link back to your website.
When have your business listed on the Business Directory sites with the most traffic, this creates an authority and credibility mesh that search engines can depend upon.
That is, when the Name, Address and Phone (a.k.a NAP) information in these directories is consistent and consistent with the same information on your website, search engines evaluate you as low risk, authentic and relevant to show in the results.
The volume of these citations also has an impact. The more (accurate and up to date) citations you create the more search engines can confirm your identity, credibility, and authority.
