LOCAL DIRECTORY LISTINGS FAQs
Inconsistent and erroneous citations in local directories will produce penalties in Google and compromise your Google search rankings. Google is very particular about accuracy.

Your information may be correct but abbreviations automated in directory software may be interpreted as errors.

Local directories, mobile apps and social media sites provide a tremendous opportunity to find new leads and customers. Over 250 millions users are searching daily on these sites. Manual listings are basic and only include name, address and phone number in a single category.
Listings that include only basic contact information cannot compete with enhanced listings that include images, descriptions, links, video, reviews and more in multiple categories. When a prospect searches and finds your basic listing, they are likely to move on to your competitor with an enhanced listing.
Using the Yext platform for local directory listings is very powerful and effective but only when it is set up properly and managed. It is important to select all relevant categories. Monthly changes in the content are needed monthly in order to help with search engine rankings.
Hours of extensive training and exams are required by Yext in order to become a certified partner. Without the proper training, the value of their system is limited and not likely to be worth the investment.

The process of identifying and claiming citations requires some careful attention to avoid duplicate listings which can also be a source of penalties in Google. Linking social media profiles and adding cover artwork is also part of the setup.
