Right now there seems to be a mad rush to get listed in free local listing services like Google Maps and other location-based search service websites. If you’re like most people, you probably get a little overwhelmed trying to figure out which of these online websites to submit to too. Of course there is likely some benefit to submitting to them all. While many people have written off Yellow Pages websites in search of the next hyped up social search service, I have found some of the “old school” platforms still offer remarkable value for location-based businesses.
SuperPages is one of the websites on the top of my list. Here are a few reasons why I recommend submitting your business to SuperPages:
Just to name a few of them.
Many of the online Yellow Pages require you to speak to someone before they will approve your listing, and try to confuse you with several paid offers during the submission process. That is not the case with SuperPages.com. There are some offers, but it is pretty straightforward, and I can’t recall anyone following up with a high-pressure sales call after my submission.
Some SuperPages competitors take months to approve your listing. All of my submissions to SuperPages have been approved within a or two day, and the listing was index in Google within another day or so. Many of the other Yellow Pages business listings never get indexed by Google at all.
Someone else who uses SuperPages may submit a review to your SuperPages listing, that review will get picked up by Google and show it in Google Maps. As you know this helps with your ranking in Google Maps.
There are also several other features available for your free listing, and some paid services too. So you might want to check it out. Unfortunately the website link in your listing doesn’t pass any PageRank, so it’s not going to help your business website rank in the organic search results. Even so, getting listed there is still well worth the few minutes it takes to submit your business.
Figuring out where to submit your listing can be a bit confusing, because there is also the social side to the site with a separate login. You will need submit your free business listing here, then it will show up in SuperMedia’s network of websites including SuperPages.com.
Good luck. I hope you found this review useful, and benefit from their free service!
