Frequently Asked Questions
Question – Which 50 directories are my business listings going to be added to?
Over the years we have used Bright Local software to gather a list of over 200 business directories. Bright Local are leaders in local SEO software and have ranked each of these directories according to their trust with Google and other search engines. We will find out where your business is currently listed and list your business on the top 50 directories you are not listed on.
Question – Do you add all 50 business listings at once?
Yes, we create all 50 within a 10 day period.
Question – Will all 50 listings be live right away?
The majority will be live. Some directories take a week to approve the listing, and others require phone verification.
Question – Will you send me all my listings?
Yes, we send out a spreadsheet with links to all of your listings along with login details for each listing.
Question – What does business listing clean up mean?
Google has stated in their GMB support area that all businesses need to establish an accurate presence across the web on third party websites. Here is a screenshot direct from their GMB support area which talks about establishing a strong and accurate presence on the web.
If you have changed business names, phone numbers or addresses, we’ll find all those listings. From there we will request to update each of those listings up to four times. If after the fourth try we are unsuccessful, we will not pursue any further as the directory owner is deemed unresponsive.
Question – What are the two review strategies?
At this time we cannot give this information out as it’s top secret! Reviews are important not only for the rankings of your GMB page, but also for generating more leads and clicks to your website.
Question – What are the website recommendations you will make?
Often times we work with clients whose websites need changes to be made to improve their GMB pages rankings. We will look at how well optimized the home or landing page is, which is linked from your GMB page. We’ll also look to make sure your business name, address and phone number are listed clearly on your website.
Question – What if I don’t have a GMB page already?
If you don’t have a GMB page listing already setup, we can take care of that for you. We’ll create your page and add all the necessary business details.
Question – What if my GMB page is claimed by someone else?
We can walk you through the steps to claim the page and make any changes needed.
Question – I want my GMB page to rank in the top 3 in cities I am not physically located in. Is that possible?
Since Google wants to provide users with closely located businesses, the answer is no. In some cases we have seen businesses rank high in cities they are not physically located in, but we have not seen these businesses rank in the top there. Read this post on proximity for more clarification. You can also use this surrounding city SEO strategy to rank an organic page for a city your business is not physically located in.
Question – What country does my business have to be located in to sign up?
As of this moment we are only working with businesses located in Canada and North America.
Question – How long will it take to improve my rankings?
This is a difficult question to answer for a few reasons. At the top of this page we have stated a few factors that Google looks at when ranking the GMB results. Depending on those factors, the city you are located in and how many competitors you have, it can take anywhere from 3-8 months.
Question – Will my GMB page rank in the top 3?
We do not guarantee top 3 results, but you will see an increase in rankings and visibility.
