How Does Your Business Rank?
Now you can instantly see if your business shows up in the most highly search local sites on the Internet for the most popular keywords and phrases your customers use to find you. Our new Business Listing Ranking tool will not only save you a ton of time, but it will show you which of your competitors are garnering all the new business from the Internet … and what you can do to take it back.
Notice on the far right column of every page there’s a category entitled “Industry” where you can quickly see how you rank for your keywords in your community. (We’re adding new industries every day.) You can either do the search by city and state or zip code. If you live in a small to medium sized community, do the search by city and state. If you live in a large urban community, use the zip code feature as well, because this is a common way people in large cities search for local business services.
Where Do Your Customers Look For You?
The tool will show you how you rank on sites including Google, Yahoo!, Bing, Merchant Circle, Yelp, Super Pages, Local and Yellow Book. It will also show you how you rank for the top 6-8 keywords people use to find the services you offer in your industry. (If your industry is not listed, please go to the comment section below and make a request.)
For example, if you’re in the appliance repair business you can see how your business ranks for the following terms.
- Appliance Repair
- Refrigerator Repair
- Washer Repair
- Dryer Repair
- Dishwasher Repair
- Oven Repair
- GE Repair
- Maytag Repair
Search Trends Rock
We also added another feature that will help you promote your business. You can see the search trends for each term to help you decide the very best months of the year to get the most out of your advertising and marketing efforts.
Give it a try.
my site lisitng over more than 3 week under review
what should i do get aprroved by google local listing
Here is what I’ve discovered with respect to how long it can take your business listing to show in the results
Google: 5 days to receive a postcard confirmation and then from instantly to 7 weeks.
Yahoo: From a few days to a few months
Bing: 45 Days to receive a postcard confirmation and then it’s all over the board.
My suggestion is to be patient. It’s hard to do, but your business will eventually show up.
