All companies, especially startups and small businesses, need to secure and manage their online directory listing. Without accurate and optimized directory listings, it will be hard for potential customers to find your business online, costing you money. Also, optimized and accurate directory listings will improve your website SEO and bring more leads to your website. Here we break down what directory listings are and why they matter to you.

What are Directory Listings? 

Directory listings are records of information and contact details for a business listed online for potential customers to find through a simple Google search. 

Securing your information on a variety of platforms will give your business credibility and authenticity. The higher traffic platforms are always checking for information accuracy against smaller business listing sites [1]. 

How Will Directory Listings Help Secure Your Online Presence? 

In any industry, including the pool & spa industry, your online presence will always be affected by user-generated content. People can only talk about your business online if they can find it. Leaving reviews is important because it shows your business impacted the users enough to go to your Google, Yelp, or Facebook listings and leave comments. To make it easy for your customers to leave reviews, you need to secure and optimize your online directory listings.

One survey showed that most tech-savvy people have written or at least read a review for different companies and that 70% of the user-generated content was by people between the ages of 25 and 54 [2]. 

Directories are more than just an SEO strategy to boost website ranking. While this is important, it’s not the only reason we recommended managing your listings.
