In the ever-growing online community, it is more important than ever to make sure your business is found in a search. You could let the search engine spiders find and index your site on their own, however, this can take time... lots and lots of time for there are millions of pages on the internet that they are crawling every day. Then once you are indexed you may not stay indexed. Why? Because websites grow old and business close they dump their database now and again for a fresh clean list.
Why risk the chance of getting listed only to be removed and start all over again. Plus you have no idea when this is happening or how it is affecting your overall listing. The simplest and most cost-effective way is through local listings. We will submit your site or over 300 website directories and listing database.
I years past one would send their site information to the search engine or directory and take them to add them to the list. Over time they have gotten more sophisticated. Although you can submit your information to the search engines it is more challenging to find the free form if they still have one at all. Most want you to pay $100 plus to be listed and that will not guarantee you do not get wiped with the next database dump.
Today we have data aggregators. These are the top four (4) companies that manage a database of website listing for the search engines to pull listings form. If your site is listed with the aggregators you can rest assured that when the search engines do a database dump they will relist your site once they pull the listings form the aggregators.
