Utilizing Business Listings for Search Engine Optimization

Search engine optimization, commonly known as SEO, is the process used to optimize a website’s technical configuration, content relevance, and link popularity so its pages can become more easily findable, more relevant and popular towards user search queries, and because of this, search engines like Google rank them better. This process is a critical aspect for local businesses in gaining web traffic and driving leads.

So, why is search engine optimization important for business listings? Well, listings provide general information about a business to potential customers, which increases brand presence and transparency. Maintaining updated, accurate listings online are very important for a local business, but they won’t make a difference if they aren’t optimized for search engines.

Luckily, every business listing promoted on Maryland Local Businesses is properly optimized based on their industry and location. For example, an automotive repair shop in Baltimore listed on Maryland Local Businesses would rank better in Google search results for searches such as “Auto Shops in Baltimore”. Because of this, that business could see an influx of traffic to their website and physical store.

Outside of general business information (address, phone number, website, etc.), listings on Maryland Local Businesses offer much more. Included is a company story, photo and video content, a featured product or service, and a job listing. These features allow potential customers to learn more about a business in an organized and creative manner. They also allow the business to build a strong brand personality and identity through their story.
