Pronto Insider: Take control of your Local Search business listings

Follow

Pronto Marketing is happy to announce a new add-on service for managing your local business listings – across 100+ local search business listings identities.

SEO and Local Directory Listings

Increasing the search engines value local directory citations in Search Portals, Internet Yellow Pages (IYP), Hype Local and Vertical directories. To get the maximum SEO impact your listings need to be accurate, consistent across all business listings identities and in sync with your website. Even more important prospects are using these directories to look for products and services – they can’t find you if you aren’t listed.

If an address or phone number changes, you want that updated everywhere at one time. Also important are the service, product and brand keywords associated with your listing. As your business changes, such as adding cloud services or a new vendor product line, we can immediately update your listing information across all directories.

Our solution gives you a single source for creating a consistent identity for direct, authorized distribution to the largest and best local search platform network in the industry.

    Do you have any references on this?  I'd like to speak to someone who has been on the program for a while.

    Rick and Dillard,

    This is a fairly new program. We've only had clients actively signed up for a few weeks now. It will most likely be a few months before we get enough usable data to say how successful for the program is. We are currently tracking rankings, % of traffic from search results, % of traffic from referrals and number of inbound links for all clients with active listings.

    Once we gather enough data, we will certainly be sharing it with all clients and making recommendations based on the results.

    Despite the lack of data we currently have access to, many SEO experts agree that the quantity and quality of your local citations and business listings are important factors in local search results. That's exactly what this program strives to achieve and we're confident that it will have a positive impact on your SEO.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Best,

    Tim

    Hi Tim,

    I recently signed up for this program.  How long will it take to get listed on all the sites that are included in this program?  Also, can I get a list of these sites so that we do not duplicate our efforts?

    Thanks for the excellent service.

    HI Marco,

    Great questions. Here is the full list of directories included in the service. Some of these may not be included depending on your location or the specifics of your business.

    If you plan on submitting your company to additional directories, it's important that you list the company name, address and phone number exactly as they appear on your website. You can find this in the footer of any page on your site. An exact match for name, address and phone number is one of the key trust indicators used by search engines when indexing these listings.

    The Local Listing Management service is meant to be a slow, long-term program. We work with a local listing distributor that prepares your information for directories and informs them when that data is ready to be collected. At that point, it is up to each directory to collect the info and update their site. Some directories are very good about keeping their listings up to date while others only update their site once per quarter. Overall, this process can often take several weeks to a couple of months.

    Although it may be a while before any improvements are noticeable, our research shows that patience pays off here. We've been tracking stats since we started the program about three months ago. Those that signed up back in May have, on average, seen an 18% increase in traffic from search engines!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Best,

    Tim
