Finding Your Business

When you search for your business on the internet, what comes back in your search results?  Hopefully one of the links is to that business's website, but what about the other links?  Where did they come from?  Some website gather information about companies and provide information about that company on the internet.  These types of sites are referred to as Business Listing sites.  The problem is, the information on those websites may or may not be accurate about that business.

Now switch to searching for your business.  The same thing will happen about your business. You can't control the sites providing information about your business, but what you can do is provide them the correct information about your business including your website.  Yes this is time consuming, but its worth your while.  In a way, you can think of it as marketing your business.  The more sites that have information about your business, the better chance people will find your site.

There are many different things the search engines look at when indexing and ranking your site.  One of them is the number of outside (other website's) links pointing to your website.  So by providing Business Listing sites your business's information, you're not only ensuring they provide accurate information about your business, but you're also increasing the chance of raising your rank among the different search engines for your site.
