Consistent NAP information (Name, Address, Phone Number) is critical for optimal visibility in local search!

Inconsistent NAP information can downgrade your website's ranking in Google, whereas consistent NAP information across a variety of authoritative directories and social media will help it rank more highly.

Inconsistent NAP information makes the googlebot "think" your organization is somewhat "fly by night" and causing it to downgrade your ranking in the search results. It makes sense, doesn't it? How would you react if, upon meeting a prospective business partner, and he or she hands you several mismatched business cards displaying different contact info on each, with misprints, misspellings and different logos - what would you think? Well googlebot agrees!

For local SEO purposes, an organization should have 1 name for each location which should be used consistently over the entire blogosphere and ecosystem of directories.

The same exact name, address and phone number (NAP) that appears on the organization's website should be used on Google+, Facebook, other social media, yellow pages and other directories.

This applies to every type of business: whether large, small, retail, wholesale, B2B, B2C, brick & mortar, ecommerce, etc.

It's a daunting task, but A Greater Town offers a directory submission service which can assist you. We start by running a report for each location to assess the current status, then we begin the process to correct and manage the vast array of directories.

Directory submissions influence local SEO in three ways:

1. Consistency of NAP information, referred to as "citations" (Name, Address, Phone number) is an important factor in local Google ranking. Consistent NAP information across the directory ecosystem signals trust to Google, Bing and the other search engines, and can improve local search results.

If your business information is "all over the charts" Google "thinks" your business is unstable and "fly-by-night." Consistent NAP creates trust in Google's "mind" and therefore will rank your website higher for relevant queries.

2. Inbound links from trusted sources such as well-known directories build authority and boost SEO.

3. Increase of direct traffic from diverse sources including directories also builds authority, signaling healthy inbound activity and user acceptance to Google and other search bots.

Our free report shows how your business appears online in directories, search engines and social media.

Directory listings are an effective way to advertise and market your business to a diverse consumer base. They can also function as a type of off-site SEO - however to work properly, they require consistent NAP information (Name, Address, Phone number - also referred to as "citations.")

Our report identifies which directories contain references to your business, and which of those are consistent.

You can handle directory submissions yourself, but it is very labor-intensive, and a daunting task to keep them current as your business and marketing strategy continue to grow and evolve. We offer a service that manages much of the work for you.

The goal is to get as many green check marks as possible, and keep them there as your business grows and evolves!

NOTE: If a directory has already been claimed, we will need your login info to modify your current listing, in the event modification is necessary.
