Business Listing Distribution – Build Citations and Drive SEO

Modern search has changed the way your customers find your businesses online. Is your business showing up as a point of interest in modern GPS systems? Mobile apps? Are voice assistants like Siri and Alexa giving their customers the right information? Missing or incorrect data can result in unhappy customers, lost revenue, and a drop in local search ranking.

Listing Distribution submits your business information to the main data aggregators: Neustar/Localeze, Acxiom, Infogroup, and Factual.

Over time, hundreds of directories will reference these aggregators to collect business data and create accurate listings based on your submitted information. This includes search engines, navigation systems, voice search, mobile apps, and even offline sources like telephone books and government records.

When multiple sources have consistent business data, two outcomes occur:

    1. Google’s WebCrawler finds the same information in multiple places and adds more confidence to their business data
    2. Good backlinks are created with more referring sources to the business’ website creating better SEO

Description

These aggregators share your business information with a network of directories that power search engines, navigation systems, voice search, mobile apps, and more—and create accurate listings customers can count on.

F.A.Q

Can I list a tracking phone number?2019-09-11T09:02:02-05:00

Tracking numbers cannot be listed as a phone number on the listing. You will need to provide the local phone number for the business.

Can we claim the listings of a business that is still under construction?2019-09-07T21:56:28-05:00

No, it is best to wait until the business has a permanent address and phone number.

How long does Listing Distribution take?2019-09-07T21:58:42-05:00

As soon as you enter your business information, we push it to the data aggregators. It can take 6-8 weeks for them to receive the information and ensure it is correct in their own databases. It is then up to the sites and sources to update their information from the data aggregators. They each query them at various intervals—some seek out the information weekly, monthly, etc. Therefore, the timeline for when a source picks up that information will vary greatly depending on their process for updating their data.

How often are listings sent to the data aggregators?2019-09-07T21:58:25-05:00

When a listing is created or modified in our system, the information is sent within 24 hours. The data aggregators receive this data and provide us with confirmation within 6-8 weeks. We also refresh your listing data once every week to ensure that aggregators always have the most accurate version of your listing.

How often can I make changes to my business profile?2019-09-07T21:58:12-05:00

You can update your business profile as much as you like while your Listing Distribution subscription is active. There’s no limit on the number of changes you can make.

What can I do to make sure I prepared for prior to your agency onboarding me as a client?2019-09-07T22:11:37-05:00

You should be prepared to confirm the name, address, phone number, hours of operation, and website of their business. In addition, you will need to be present at the business and able to take incoming calls at the primary business number.

What if a business has duplicate listings—how does Listing Distribution take care of those?2019-09-07T21:58:33-05:00

Listing Distribution does not delete duplicate listings. If you are interested in duplicate suppression, we encourage you to visit our Listing Sync Pro product.

What is a data aggregator?2019-09-22T23:08:14-05:00

Data aggregators gather consumer and business data and provide it to hundreds of listing directories, review sites, search engines, and more. They also power sophisticated modern applications such as Apple’s Siri and personal navigation systems.

Why is Listing Distribution a yearly subscription?2019-09-07T21:58:50-05:00

Listing Distribution is a continual process that maintains and builds your web presence over time. Once the data aggregators have your correct business information, the rate at which sites reference this information varies. To ensure the widest span of information and the number of listings created, Listing Distribution needs to be activated for an extended period of time.

Even if your business information is correct, listings can be eroded over time by user-generated content and other incorrect data. As long as your subscription is active, Listing Distribution refreshes your information with the data aggregators every week. Without this, there is a risk of allowing the current public data to change all of the value already established.
