These local business searches are driven by databases of such listings, not from Website information. It is where 75% of all business searches take fewer experts know the tricks in dealing with 800-numbers, P.O.Box numbers and non-traditional phone lines.
These listings are becoming more important now that Search Engines and Mobile services deliver localized information based on knowledge of where you are when you conduct a Web search.
Sophisticated Web users know that you can submit listings directly to several of the larger Search portals, but this is time-consuming, complicated and few experts know all the places where the data needs to go. Unlike Web search, which is dominated by Google, searches for businesses are more likely to happen on other sites and Mobile phones. Even fewer experts know the tricks in dealing with 800-numbers, P.O.Box numbers and non-traditional phone lines.
