2. Claim your business listings submitting data to sites (search engines, maps, navigators, directories, etc.).
If you want to improve your ranking position, focus on your local business listings. 78% of local mobile searches
result in an offline purchase. So, your listings should be the most important part of your local SEO strategy.
Moreover, it is very important to claim all your listings, even if they belong to the same address
. What does this mean exactly?
Generally speaking, a business can only have one listing for each address, but there are exceptions to this rule. Some institutions can have more than one listing at a single location.
Thus, financial organizations can have multiple listings at the same location: a single office can have its own listing, an ATM listing, and even listings for professional services provided within the branch such as a financial audit or investment services. A hospital, for example, would have separate listings for the hospital itself, each department, and all the doctors who work there.
