Business Listing Service
Citations are one of the many factors that contribute to the positioning of a business’ search result ranking. A citation is an instance in which your business’s name, address and phone number (or NAP) appears on another site. For the most part, citations come from other local search listings such as Yahoo, Bing, Merchant Circle and more.
Citations - Why Are They Important?
Search engines algorithms (which determine rankings) look at the total number of citations a business has throughout the web. With all other factors being equal, the business with the most citations in the most places will get a higher ranking. However, citations must be consistent to be effective in raising a search result ranking. That’s where we come in.

What are people finding when they search for a product or service?
Are they finding your local business, or nothing but your competitors? The key to getting found by local customers is local business listings. Local business listings appear in all of the major online business listing services, like Yahoo Local, Yellowpages.com, Merchant Circle and even Apple’s artificial intelligent agent, Siri. Our reach doesn’t stop there. Your business will be listed in mobile phone GPS apps such as Garmin and TomTom. There are hundreds out there, and Find8 can get you into over 400 of the biggest.
Business Listing Advantages
Having Find8 create your business listings has 3 major advantages:
- The more secured listings you have, the more secure your business will be. Unverified listings can sometimes show up in search engines even if the business did not create them. Those listings are ripe for hijacking.
- The more CONSISTENT listings you have, the more validity search engines assign to your business. The listings must match as closely as possible though. Find8 does that across over 100 listings.
- Who has the time? We do. Creating all of these listings yourself would take days, if not weeks, of work. Save time and therefore money by letting us take care of it for you. And if you move locations or change phone numbers, we can update your information with a few simple clicks.
