FREE LBL’s (Local Business Listings) in Major Search Engines

Ever wonder how to get your business to pop up in major search engines when someone does a search on your industry in your city? It’s actually pretty simple and even better, it’s free. All you need to do is to go to the Local Business Listing section of your desired search engine and follow the steps. Many times you can add photos, logos and even video. Some refer to it as Geo Marketing and it’s a trend that is here to stay. Here’s some direct links to get you started:

1. Google: http://www.google.com/local/add/analyticsSplashPage?gl=US&hl=en-US
2. Yahoo: http://local.yahoo.com/
3. Bing: https://ssl.bing.com/listings/ListingCenter.aspx
4. Yelp: https://biz.yelp.com/

Oh and one more thing! Don’t forget that your customers can add testimonials to these as well (good or bad), so make sure to keep in touch with your listings, see what people are saying about you. Finally, word of caution: Don’t ask your friends to go in and post a bunch of fake testimonials…trust me these sites (especially Yelp) know how to spot this kind of stuff.

Good luck!
