Searching for business listings to add your business to is SO time consuming, and if you are a local business, you should be signing up for as many business listings (that align with your brand) as you can so you can get those sought after backlinks to your website and increase your SEO rank.
Backlinks are essential to helping you move up in the search engine ranks, and signing up for business listings is the first step you can take to make this happen. And MORE importantly, they help drive traffic to your website... because at the end of the day we are trying to get your products and services seen by the people who need it the most!
