You may be surprised to learn that according to our analysis, as many as 40% of online listings have missing or erroneous information.
Until now, there’s been no easy way to get listing information directly from the business owner. Online search relies on secondary sources, which may be outdated, incomplete, or simply wrong. To monitor your online presence by yourself, you’d have to visit Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask, Yelp, Yellowpages.com, Local.com, Superpages, and hundreds of other sites to review and correct your listings, a task estimated to take at least 140 hours and probably more. And what about all the new sites that are constantly emerging?
Our KlickLocal Listing service is a powerful and effective one-stop distribution point for your business listing. We distribute your detailed business profile through InfoGroup and Acxiom, the data warehouses behind the scenes that power 95% of online search. With Klicklocal Listing, you’ll see your business profile show up across more than 150 digital distribution points:
- Search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing

- 1.Free Listings: The “white pages” of online search
- 2.Sponsored/Paid Listings: The “yellow pages” of online search
- 3.Claimed Listings: Free listings that have been claimed and verified by the business owner
As you might imagine, claimed listings have a special status with directories and search engines; they are treated as high-value listings that are not merged with information from other sources and are given priority in search results. Unlike sponsored listings, claimed listings are free on most sites, so business owners are well advised to claim their listings on as many prominent sites as possible. Of course, it’s hard to find the time for this sort of thing amid the day to day responsibilities of trying to run a business. That’s where our Claimed Profiles come in. With Claimed Profiles, we claim your listings on Yahoo, Bing, and Google, securing your presence at these crucial anchor points for internet search traffic. We make sure your basic listing information is accurate and upload additional profile details including logos and photos. We also create a Facebook fan page for your business and a profile on Twitter and Foursquare. Once you receive your Claimed Profiles report, you’ll be able to take advantage of these new contact points and get connected with your customers online.
