By having a toll free number, a business is able to protect their geographical location by not providing the public with their area code
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 01, 2013
Tollfreenumber.ORG, an American-based company that provides 1-800 toll-free numbers, has disclosed information regarding how businesses can benefit from search engine optimization by posting their toll free number on their website so that Google and other search engines can index their phone number and use it as an indicator within the search engine algarhythm.
Logan Marshall was quoted on his website: “Many of our customers were contacting us to find out how they could use their toll free number to boost business,”
“Many of them were stating that their number simply wasn't coming up in search engines such as Google and Yahoo. We did some research and found that businesses who posted their toll free number prominently, on just about every page of their site, were receiving more business from Google."
Logan Continued: "We found this was due to the fact that Google could fetch their number more easily and display it for their potential and current customers to look up conveniently.”
Tollfreenumber.org has suggested that businesses not merely place their toll free numbers on their contact pages. “You want your toll free number to be one of the focal points of your site,” states Marshall.
“So, if you own a toll free number, be sure to post it in a noticeable position on your pages; and mention the fact that customers can call you via your toll free number within your web copy. This will enhance your customer service and increase customer confidence. After all, businesses who have a toll free number and post it on their site can experience, on average, a 600% boost in business.”
“By having a toll free number, a business is able to protect their geographical location by not providing the public with their area code,” says Logan Marshall, founder of Tollfreenumber.ORG.
“A number of our new customers contacted us to arrange a toll free number for this very reason, including those who were website owners who didn't necessarily want to limit their customer or client base by giving out their local area code number. We also highlight the fact that a toll free number can also prevent harassment as well, given that you can opt to screen your calls and can even block certain callers.”
“It's true that some toll free critics might claim that a toll free number is outdated,” says Logan Marshall, founder of tollfreenumber.org.
“However, this couldn't be further from the truth. Even now Search Engine Optimization experts are using a toll free number to enhance the visibility of their clients' sites and posting these effective numbers prominently on the sites themselves. Given that a toll free number can help to increase customer confidence, and is a sign of enhanced customer service, the benefits of having a toll free number are many in addition to now being a valuable SEO tool.”
