Directory Marketing = 5* Google Juice for Local Search

Last Updated on

The Next Big Thing in Local Search will Not Be Search Engines.

It will be online directories. Need confirmation? Try this little test. Go to your search engine of choice, Google, Yahoo or Bing etc. and type in a well known city name along with “restaurants” in the search box. Example “Brighton Restaurants”. A staggering 9 out of the first 10 generic results are for directories, not restaurants.

Why? Search engines realize that human powered directories with specialized knowledge can do a better job of leading users through the final phase of the search process. So specialized directory publishing will be the next big opportunity in online local search.

    The Google 7 pack in Local Search is certainly the first and formost important result in search. But how do you get in the 7 pack?

    By appearing in as many directories as possible, all with rich content about your business. This actually pushes you to the top of the 7 pack.

    When I do a search for “Brighton Restaurants” in Google the first thing I see is Google local business results (Google 7-Pack). It seems to me this is far more important than 2nd tier business directories, right?
