An important part of any search engine optimization plan must include getting your business on as many of the local and social listings as possible. In addition to keeping your name and address out there, people use these listings to talk. And talk generates interest in
your business and your site. Good reviews always help boost your profile as well.
Here is an example of how much exposure you could get from being listed in the right places:
Kudzu.com Quantcast measures the traffic at an estimated 678,000 site visitors per month
YellowBot.com Has an average of 744,000 visitors a month.
MacRaesBlueBook.com 1 million active users per monthly and specializes in manufacturing and industrial products
MerchantCircle.com MerchantCirlcle averages a 5.8 million visitors a month.
WickedLocal.com Specific to New England; estimated 3 Million visitors per month
UrbanSpoon.com Restaurant site; estimated 4 million visitors per month
RestaurantRow.com Restaurants; estimated 20,000 visitors per month
Manta Estimated 23 million visitors per month; the site has over 30 million business listings
Yelp Estimated 41 million monthly visitors
Those are just a few of the listing and review sites available to you for tons of free online marketing. Some will cover much broader areas of interest and geography while others are more localized and industry specific. The more you are listed, the more visible you are.
