The Importance of Listing Sites | Boston Web Marketing

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:  Quantcast measures the traffic at an estimated 678,000 site visitors per month Has an average of 744,000 visitors a month.  1 million active users per monthly and specializes in manufacturing and industrial products MerchantCirlcle  averages a 5.8 million visitors a month. Specific to New England; estimated 3 Million visitors per month Restaurant site; estimated 4 million visitors per month 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.
