How To Restore Local Business Listings

1 year ago 370

Introduction

Google My Business and Yelp are two of the most popular ways to find local business listings. In this post, we'll show you how to get your business listed on both sites so that you can start seeing reviews and updates regularly.

List your business on Google My Business.

Google My Business is a free and easy way to manage your business listing sites list Google. It's like an online version of the Yellow Pages, but it also includes photos, videos, and more.

You can add hours of operation, phone numbers and other details about your business. You can respond to reviews or messages from customers by answering them directly in the app—or even just leaving a comment on their review! If you want more control over how people find you on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) websites like Google or Yelp (two powerful tools for driving traffic), then this is where it’s at!

The benefits are endless: increased visibility; better customer service; higher sales; more repeat customers -- all because now there's no reason why anyone would ever visit another local business without checking out yours first!

Verify your business listing on Google My Business.

  • Log into Google My Business.

  • Verify your business listing.

  • Make sure the information is accurate and up to date, then save it as a draft before you move on to Step 6 (below).

Claim your business listing on Yelp.com.

Yelp is a business directory website that allows you to list your business on their website. They offer free and paid options, with the paid version offering more features than their free version.

If you're not sure how to claim your listing, check out our guide here: https://www.yelpusa.com/restore-local-businesses/.

Link your Yelp account to Google Plus (Google+).

Link your Yelp account to Google Plus (Google+)

If you haven't already, now is the time to link your Yelp account to Google Plus. Why? Because it will give your business an easy way of getting more exposure on both platforms. If you don't see this option when logging in, contact us and we'll help get it set up!

Add or claim your Facebook Business page.

  • Go to Facebook's Pages Manager and click on "Pages" in the left-hand menu bar.

  • Select your business from the dropdown menu, then click "Create Page."

  • Enter your business listing sites list into the fields provided: name, address, phone number and email address are all required fields for this step! The rest of their page is optional (but it is recommended). For example: if you want people searching Google Maps or Yelp listings to find you as an option when they type in your city/town then include that information here too! Make sure everything is correct before submitting it though so don't worry about typos or anything like that - just make sure everything looks right before hitting Submit button below this text box :)

  • .Once all fields have been filled out successfully then click "Get Started" button at bottom right corner of screen below text box above paragraph above paragraph #3 below paragraph

Have a Facebook page? Link it to Google Plus (Google+) now, too.

If you are already using Google Plus as a local business listing source and want to make sure that your online presence is consistent, here's how:

  • First, log into your Facebook account. If you don't already have one, create one now!

  • Once logged in and ready to go, go to "Settings" at the top right corner of any page on Facebook (or click here). Then click on "Messages" in order to access additional settings related specifically for messaging between users who interact with each other via this platform. You'll see there are two tabs at the top - Text Messages & Friends Requests - so click leftmost icon labeled “Text Messages” which will result in opening up another box where we can enable notifications from certain people/groups when they send messages directly through Facebook itself; if we choose not too then no alert sounds will be emitted upon receipt thereof."

Find other local business listings that you already own and claim them

If you already own a local business listing, but it's not showing up in the search results, that may be because Google doesn't have access to your data. You can check this by doing a search on Bing or Yahoo (if you've registered with them) or TripAdvisor. If these sites show that they have access to your listing and it's not showing up in their results, call them directly and ask what happened.

If these sites don't have any record of your business at all—and if you're using only one of them as a source of leads for marketing purposes—then there's probably something wrong with either how well-connected those platforms are with each other or with whatever piece of software is used by your company's webmaster/digital marketing team (or whoever else manages these things).

Now you can start regularly monitoring these sites for reviews and updates!

Now that you've got your business listing sites up and running, it's time to start regularly monitoring them for reviews and updates.

It's important to be proactive in monitoring these sites so that you can spot any potential problems before they become a problem for your business. As soon as someone writes about a problem with your business or provides an update on the status of an order, email or call the customer service department immediately. This shows that you care about their experience with you!

Conclusion

I know that this is a lot to take in. But, hopefully, it will make you think about how your business can gain more visibility online through all of the different social media channels and other ways that people search for local businesses. The key is to keep track of these listings and make sure they remain active so that people can find them easily when they are looking for somewhere new around them.
