In today's cyber world, small businesses need a website - that is a given. But a website isn't enough - you also need viable sources to drive traffic to your website or it is like building a house in the middle of a cornfield without a road to reach it.
Online directories are a great way to drive traffic to your website and ensure that consumers can find you. With over 38 billion annual searches and 76 million monthly visitors, YP.com is ranked the 34th most used Internet site. There are many online directories to choose from, but not all offer the same traffic. Check for yourself by using Compete.com to compare the rankings of other online directories such as Yellowbook, DexKnows, Superpages, YahooLocal and Local.com.
It would break the bank having to pay to be on all the sites where people look for professional products and services today. The good new is that YP.com has a distribution partnership with 300 other search sites, so you can be found on all of these sites just by listing your business on YP.com. The YP.com network also puts your business in front of consumers who are doing mobile searches. In fact, mobile now accounts for 30% of all searches on YP.com. The YPmobile app has been preloaded or downloaded it onto more than 40 million devices - including iPhones, iPads, Androids and Kindles.
As an added incentive, your business will also have a greater opportunity to be found on major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing because YP.com is a SEO friendly service that will help boost your website’s organic listings because of backlinks and citations. Backlinks are incoming links to a web page and citations are mentions of your business name and address on other web pages. This cyber activity could earn you a higher position on search engines due to the algorithms used to track popularity proximity, and usage. It is like getting free advertising!
