Why List Your Business With Online Directories?
Updated: Dec 4, 2019
Got Backlinks and Higher Search Engine Rankings?
It's no secret that PHM Digital LLC sells an all-in-one marketing dashboard that creates business profiles which are automatically added to dozens of local Online business directories. These directories include Yelp, Google Maps, Merchant Circle and dozens of additional Online directories. But why? Why do we do it? Keep reading to see how the minimal expense has been well worth it for our clients.
Online Directories, Backlinks, & Your Search Engine Rankings
First, listing your business on dozens of Online directories is much more than just another way for potential consumers to find your business in a local directory search. Did you know that the profiles we connect to these directories also link back to your website? Those are called backlinks. Keep reading...because this is the important part.
Backlinks to your website shows search engines (like Google) that your content is worth linking back to. If a lot of sites link back to the same website, search engines may decide that your website should also be found on their Search Engine Results Page (SERP). Ultimately, PHM Digital has clients that have rocketed up the search engine rankings for the keywords and keyword phrases they have chosen to focus on. Don't get me wrong, there was a bit more work involved, like adding their keywords/keyword phrases throughout their website and updating their dashboard profile with slightly different business descriptions (at least once a month). The best part is that this all costs PHM Digital's clients a fraction of what it would have, had they decided to pay for monthly SEO services.
Higher Search Engine Rankings Means More People Find You!
Sure, ranking higher on search engines for applicable keywords is the desire of any business owner, but how do you know it's actually working? Luckily, PHM Digital's Client Marketing Dashboard has all the analytics tools you need! From profile views, website visits, & current keyword rankings, you can track it all right from your dashboard!
I bet you're wondering why we have that random graph image? Well, that's just a teaser...and the 60 day results for our dashboard client, Colorado Aggregate Recycling. Since starting the marketing dashboard, they have seen a 143% increase in phone calls and a 138% increase in direction requests! I can't promise these results for every client, but every client who has taken the dashboard seriously has seen improvement in their websites search engine rankings!
