Why should I submit my listing to Local Data Aggregators?

Why should I submit my listing to Local Data Aggregators?

Local Data Aggregators are platforms which gather data on local companies such as their name, address, phone number, opening hours etc.

Local Data Aggregators (eg. Factual, Neustar, Info USA…) then verify this data to ensure it is accurate and make the data available to Search Engines (e.g Google, Bing, Yahoo) as well as many online directories  and GPS services (e.g YP.com, Mapquest, TomTom)

Search engines, directories and GPS services then draw this data from aggregators databases so they can have accurate and up to date data visible in their own products. The major benefit of submitting your listing to data aggregators is that you get ‘trusted’ status within aggregator feeds to 3rd party sites.

Via data aggregators local businesses can make sure they have published accurate location data across the web for their locations, this in turn helps them to perform better in local search.

Through purchasing aggregator submissions, your listings are managed and marked with a trusted data stamp for 12 months.  There is a renewal fee to repurchase your submissions to the aggregators and keep your data trusted. The renewal fee is the same as for initial submission/update.

We recommend keeping your online listings verified and trusted that means to update your data on all platforms at least once a year.  Renewing a service keeps your data consistent and 100% accurate.
