Ft. Lauderdale (PRWEB) June 15, 2005
WebStream today announced that it is offering localized search engine registrations for local-driven or retail businesses. Google, Yahoo and Amazon are among the leaders now in the latest tool for being found on the web. WebStream will create, initiate and monitor the listing that gives the search engine user much more information than standard listings. The service is offered along with WebStreamÂs SEO and SEM services, or as a stand-alone enhancement.
By creating a local search listing, a business can be found by a variety of local search rules such as category, key-word, zip code, street name, town, county, region, etc. The web site owner can also choose from a variety of key-word categories. The results for a particular business are displayed in an expanded format providing name, contact phone numbers, map with directions, listing of services and additional features. One of the great benefits of creating localized search listings is that they can be edited anytime. Services, features, contact information and more can be changed as needed. Yahoo even allows for a customized full-page display for a monthly fee.
The local listing service is becoming a hot item for small businesses that traditionally have relied on local advertising, or walk-in traffic to help support that business. Localized listings help to bridge the gap in todayÂs world of the Internet where everything is a mouse-click away. If a site is already listed with a particular search engine that offers local listings, it can still be found doing a local search, but will just display the basic search engine results as a standard listing. The local listings provide the potential customer with much more information and increases the likelihood of sales, as the supporting facts show that surfers searching locally are doing so for a reasonÂ they want to find a local company to do business with.
