Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) July 1, 2009
eppraisal.com, a consumer-focused home valuation and real estate information site, today announced the launch of a new version of its Real Estate Professional Directory. This updated service gives real estate professionals one location to list their business profiles not only on eppraisal.com, but also on Google Maps, Yahoo! Local, Yellowpages.com, and 80 other search engines and local directories.
Using the advanced directory service, real estate professionals get a profile page on top-ranked eppraisal.com as well as numerous other local directories, improving their online visibility on local search engines and directories.
According to the Kelsey Group, 70 percent of online searchers will use local search to find offline businesses. To support this trend, search engines have dedicated a large portion of their search results page to local search listings. For example, consumers searching for a local professional on major search engines (ie. Appraisers in Orlando) are presented with local business listings and a general map of the area. Additional business listings are shown in the "organic" results from other local directories, like eppraisal.com, Kudzu, and Yellowpages.com. With eppraisal.com's new Professional Directory, real estate professionals can use one central location to list their business profiles on multiple directories and get greater exposure in both local and organic search engine results.
The eppraisal.com Professional Directory offers a paid service and a scaled-down free service, which is currently available to six real estate professional types: real estate agents, mortgage brokers, home inspectors, appraisers, home stagers, and title and escrow officers. During the next few months, additional professional types will be launched to the site.
