I know …I know you’ve heard me say that the Yellow Pages are dying and losing speed fast..BUT..they have an online presence that is forming that you just can’t ignore.
Making sure your dental practice location(s) information is up to date across the Web is perhaps the most important thing you can do to help potential patients find you.
And the Local Search For Dentists is here to make that a little easier for you 🙂
The sites listed below are some of the most important in the local search world. On most you can update the information they display about your practice for free and who doesn’t like a free listing? While this can be tedious and someone labor intensive(hrs most likely), it’s well worth taking the time to optimize the listings below:
Major Local Search Engines/Yellow Pages
Google Local Business Center
Local.com Free Business Listing
Superpages.com Free Listing
Yahoo Local Free Business Listing
Yellowpages.com Create A Listing
Major Data Suppliers to Local Search Engines
Localeze.com Manage Your Business Listing
While all these sites are free, don’t just go throwing up anything in the listing. You want to make sure that your link this to your website, add your blog/Facebook etc, add photos/video(if it allows) and keyword load the description(after you’ve done your keyword research of course).
Give the search engines a month or so to update their database and you’re well on your way to the Top of the Local Search! Hope this helped! Let me know if you have any questions…
