Manage and Distribute Business Profile Data Free to Online and Mobile Directory Publishers
Looking for a free way to manage your business profile data? Better yet, Would you want to distribute that data for free to online and mobile directory publishers? What if you change your address or phone number or add additional locations? Would you like to add your business profile data for free? Well, here is a great new option.
UniversalBusinessListing.org (UBL) and Locationary have announced a strategic partnership to manage and distribute business profile data free to online and mobile directory publishers. The platform currently comprises 22 million enhanced business listings that publishers can access to power their online search services.
Not only can you use this to provide more detailed and up-to-date information to potential customers who may search online, the information you provide will provide publishers (where your info is located) a more uniform format. This is important becasue typically it may take up to 90 days to get changes updated: like a new address, contact information, hours of operation and product lists. Sometimes even longer than that. This is an attempt to make easier for the publishers like search engines, online Yellow Pages, mobile devices, social networks, and online directory sites to update the information.
In addition to serving publishers’ needs for rich business listings content in a uniform format, the partnership will enable businesses to provide more detailed and up-to-date information to potential customers who are searching online. This is important, because profile changes—such as a new address, contact information, hours of operation and product lists—can take 90 days or longer to propagate to the various online directory sites and mobile search apps.
Under the partnership agreement, UBL will provide a user dashboard for businesses to build and update their business profiles, while Locationary will provide the data access and distribution platform for publishers.
“There is a clear need for a centralized place where a business can cut through the increasingly complex task of managing its online business identity across search engines, online Yellow Pages, mobile devices and social networks,” said Doyal Bryant, UBL CEO. “Our partnership with Locationary allows businesses to quickly and easily update their business information, and at the same time, provides the enhanced and up-to-date data that is important to search engines and online directory publishers.”
