Local Directory Listings - the moxie that'll rank your website for Siri Searches
If you're looking to rank your business on voice search engine's like Siri or Cortana then you need to invest in local directory listings.
More and more potential customers are using Siri to locate local businesses and services that they need. Example would be when someone searches for "Marketing Company for Law Firms Near me". Siri will load and then bring up multiple companies, showing their business, star rating and address.
To rank and scale with Siri, your business's proximity to the searcher is paramount, however with more directory listings pointed to your website you can rank in front of closer companies with ease. Optimizing these local directory listings with your target keywords and having juicy content will definitely give you an edge over your competition.
Why do I need local directory listings?
With Siri and Cortana, it's important that your website is listed on sites like Google Places, Foursquare, CitySearch and Yelp. But just being listed on these websites isn't enough. If you're going to list your business on these websites it's critical that your Business Name, Address and Phone Number are all the same.
Google rewards businesses who have all of their information listed the same across these listings. Since Google wants to provide the user with the best answer to their question, businesses that have their information the same across these listings will be rewarded by leap frogging their competition on Voice Searches.
Local Directory Listings is where Siri draws her data from. Remember- your business information needs to be the SAME across all these sites.
