FindEt Flyer

Directory Listings are the myriad of online sites that work as online phone books.  They collect listings of businesses and store them in categories with the key words.  Often these sort by location.  When a consumer enters a search such as best pancakes in Freedom Nebraska.  The search engines frequently show the names of local businesses. The happy consumer clicks to find out the details.

Here it is rarely the actual site of the business. Instead they find they are on a directory listing.

Your business is in the directory listings. Right now, as you read.

The listing opens with your business name but it also has other options for the consumer to choose from.  If your directory listing profile is complete then you can rest assured that the information is correct.  A complete profile is more enticing to the consumer. It usually features a picture or several. It gives your hours and contact information. It also has a clickable link to your website.

If you have not gone to the directory site and added your complete information then there is a good chance that things are wrong or missing.  It is in your best interest to make sure that your profile is up to date on every directory listing.
