Image Forward and UBL combine to offer improved directory listing services

Quality Directory listings are integral to the success of any SEO campaign.

We can see if-Places becoming an important destination for businesses to improve their online visibility - Chris Travers, UBL President.

Image Forward and Universal Business Listing (UBL) today announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership to integrate Image Forward’s proprietary if-Places local SEO directory system with UBL client locations. The new directory will be fully operational in May 2012 and will incorporate listings from the United States and Canada.

“The strategic partnership with UBL is an example of our unified commitment to win on the local level by focusing on Internet Presence Management, a proven solution for search discovery, combining strategies to maximize organic and mobile search visibility,” said Robert Messinger, EVP of Image Forward.

This new forward thinking collaboration is another example of UBL’s commitment to developing strong partnerships with companies like Image Forward, that specialize in the local distribution channel for online information. UBL client locations will benefit with improved SEO visibility in the local market by supplementing and enhancing their clients’ existing web presence and/or standard corporate location finders. The if-Places directory system is optimized to add immediate value to multiple location and franchise businesses, maximizing corporate identify, branding, and SEO efforts on the local level.

UBL President, Chris Travers, said the if-Places directory would be an excellent addition to the UBL business profile syndication network that now covers over 300 Web, mobile and social sites. “We can see if-Places becoming an important destination for businesses to improve their online visibility,” he said.

“We see a tremendous synergy between our two organizations. Given the scale and wealth of local marketing experience among our executive teams, we are confident that this category of expansion will improve the online experience and bring about a win-win for UBL and Image Forward clients,” said Michael Huth, CEO of Image Forward.
