Webs, a widely popular website builder, has announced the launch of “Local Search” - a new online local listings tool for small businesses.
Part of a suite of marketing products including Pagemodo and ContactME, Webs is an easy-to-use drag-and-drop website builder designed for small businesses.
This newly introduced local listings tool enables businesses to quickly get listed in more than 100 local listings sites and major search engines, exposing it to prospective customers. The listings include the top local search directories such as Google, Bing, AOL, Yahoo, Yelp, YP.com and more.
Mass Local Listings Made Simple
Local Search works for small businesses with and without physical presences. All users need to do is produce basic company details, taking less than five minutes to get submitted to more than 100 online directories. Once submitted, businesses can easily monitor and update their listings using their own online dashboard.
Local Search also includes a free check on whether a business is already included in top local directories. In addition to small business owners, marketing agencies can use Local Search to improve their clients’ local search results (local SEO).
Scott Bowen, Webs' General Manager, made these comments about the new release:
“We’ve found that most of our customers build a website to attract new customers to their business and provide a platform to sell their products online. If a company’s website or online profile isn’t easily found on local listings sites and search engines, customers will never know about that company and its offerings. Local Search isn’t just for businesses with a physical presence – it’s a tool any business looking to grow its sales can benefit from.”
