Getting listed on online business listing sites and local business directories is one of the most effective ways to boost your business performance on local SEO (search engine optimization).

While having your own website remains crucial — as do traditional SEO strategies like keyword research and link building — building and growing your online presence on local business sites and directories can bring you closer to nearby consumers.

According to the ReviewTrackers Local Search Report:

  • 53 percent of searchers typically visit a business within 48 hours of performing a local search.
  • Photos (24 percent), reviews (21 percent), and position on local search engine results pages or SERPs (21 percent) are the three things considered “most important” by local searchers.
  • 57 percent of local searches happen on mobile or tablet devices.
