In fact, incomplete and inaccurate online local listings cost companies 10.3 BILLION dollars a year in lost business.
The challenge is that there are hundreds of directories that aggregate the local listing information that displays when someone searches for a business in Google, Bing, Yahoo, or other search engine.
Finding and updating listings is difficult and time consuming, and there's no guarantee that any changes you make will be saved and propagated. Plus, these listings are open to public editing, so you can't ensure they won't be changed by visitors.
Some of the common problems with local listings include:
- 43% Incorrect/missing address
- 37% Incorrect/inconsistent/missing name
- 19% Missing website URL
- 18% Incorrect/missing phone number
- 14% Missing listing
