UK Directory Listing Service For Businesses
If you are a local business in the UK then directory listings can be a very powerful tool for your business branding, company profile and website search engine optimisation. SEO Company Bristol offer the best directory listing service in the UK.
What are directory listings?
There are 1000’s of websites that list UK businesses. These include local area directories, national directory listings and in-car navigation or “sat nav” listings.
These listings have information on your business, such as:
- Company name
- Company address
- Company telephone number
- Company email address
- Business category
- Business services and / or products
- Business photographs
- Description of your business, services and products
- Company Social Media Profiles
Why are directory listings important?
As well as people using these directories to find a company to buy services or products from – Google uses directories as a source of information on your business.
Google has a number of directories that it trusts to provide information on local businesses.
Being on these directories, and having details of your business listed in a particular way, gives Google more confidence that your business is a bonafide local business. This increase in confidence from Google will improve your website rankings and your companies rankings in Google Maps, or as it is currently named, “Google My Business”.
Having the same, and correct, information about your business is the key to ranking well for local searches.
Your business is likely to have a number of listings on these directories. If you have never managed such listings – they are likely to have, at best, your information in different formats and, at worst, the incorrect information.
Directory listings – incorrect format
Do a search of Google for your “your company name location” – you will find a number of websites are in the search results. These are directory listings. Having the correct information in the same format is paramount to ranking well.
By the “same format” we mean if your businesses is at “16 The High Street” – you will find listings for:
- 16 The High Street
- 16 The High St.
- 16 High Street
- 16 High St.
- The High Street
- High Street
To the human eye this can make sense, but to Google it is six variations of data. It can be seen as six different addresses.
TIP: If you want your Google Maps Listing to rank well – ensure the correct data is on your Google Plus page and use the EXACT same information, in the EXACT same format on all your directory listings. It will give a MASSIVE boost to your Google Map listings.
Directory listings – incorrect information
If having the correct information for your business is harmful, you can imagine having incorrect information about your business can be crippling.
If your business has ever moved or has more than one branch or changed name or telephone number – then it is likely that all of these changes created new directory listings as well as having the old listings.
To compound this, if you have not managed the listings, you will have different formats of the incorrect information all across the internet. Google could be potentially seeing 100’s if not 1000’s of variations of your business information.
