Everybody wants to be on the first page of Google or other search engines, but the quest to the front page requires strategy from many different angles. One of the most important strategies to becoming #1 is making sure your business is listed on as many websites as possible. To start, we submit your website to all major and relevant search engines. From there, we work our way towards websites that act primarily as a directory for businesses. You might not know it but websites like Yelp!, Manta, Houzz, and Yellow Pages are all perfect examples of directory websites. By signing up with directory submissions, you receive a free profile page that contains basic business information about your business including your website URL, phone number, address, etc.
If a search engine spider detects your website URL on multiple directories, your relevance compared to other websites in your industry will increase rapidly. An incoming hyperlink from one web page to another website is called a backlink (click to read more). At Total Web SEO, we make sure to scrape the internet for as many public backlinks as possible by submitting your business to directory websites and search engines.
