Frequently Asked Questions

It’s crucial for local SEO to ensure that all of your business data is consistent everywhere your business is listed online. But the benefits go beyond just ranking locally. It also helps avoid confusion when your information is consistent. When potential and even current customers are looking up information about your business and there is no misleading information, you can build stronger relationships with your audience.

Once you sign up and enter your business information, all of your locations and directories are updated instantly, in real-time.

Data reveals that more and more people are using voice search to find what they need. We ensure that your listings are voice-search optimized across the board with all of our packages.

Yes, once you connect your Facebook account and Google My Business page, you will be able to schedule and post articles to each of those platforms from a centralized location.

Direction Local’s Local Doctor product will sync your business information across 64 online directories, including social media, navigation apps, publishers, and critical data aggregators, which will save you countless hours with each update.

Additionally, Direction Local is one of the few platforms to sync with, making our network one of the best for healthcare organizations.

The more consistent your business information is, the more likely you will appear in Google Maps for your target keyword phrases. Accurate and consistent business information across major business directories generally leads to better rankings. The more consistent your data is, the more Google and other search engines trust you.

Direction Local makes updating your business information a breeze. Just update the information field that changed. Direction Local will automatically sync the new data across each of the directories, saving you from having to update them individually.

Yes! Once you connect your Google My Business page to Direction Local, you’ll be able to respond to reviews directly through the platform.

Yes, of course! Be sure to set aside several hours, perhaps days, and make sure you have all 50 usernames and passwords handy. Be prepared to do it all over again whenever you want to update your business information. Or you can have one central hub to update every listing, ultimately saving you time and guaranteeing all of your company information is synchronized across the internet.

Some listing directories (Google My Business, for example) allow users to edit listings directly through their website. However, prior edits will be overwritten by the new edits once you connect the listing to our system. Therefore, to ensure consistency in business information across all directories, we recommend making any and all changes through Direction Local once you’re signed up (pro tip: it’s easier that way too).

Setup is fast and easy.  We have an easy to walk through platform that allows you to navigate from one section to the next.  Feel free to reach out to support to answer any questions you may have.
