All local businesses should have an online presence, especially when it comes to online directories to ensure potential customers can find you. The goal is to make your business easy to find online. Local directories are extremely valuable to local businesses because they list contact information, reviews, ratings, and photos. Incorporating local business directories should be a part of every local business marketing plan because they provide SEO benefits, and help search engines find your website. The more directories, the better. Getting your local businesses Name, Address, and Phone Number (NAP) information listed on online business listing, directories, and citation sites improve visibility and provide backlinks which also benefits SEO. The increased exposure leads to higher search engine rankings which result in more traffic and higher revenue.
