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.
It’s important to have your business listed in as many online directories as possible. There are literally thousands out there but submitting your contact details, opening times, Keyword rich bio, photographs, videos, voucher etc. is time consuming and tedious, besides your too busy doing what you do best, running your business.
