What This Information Indicators.
Basically, businesses that operate online, and aren’t at least doing some Social Media Marketing, won’t have much hope when it comes to generating traffic through search. The top five spots are where the money is really at, and after that, it declines sharply. This is not exactly groundbreaking news, however.
What is rather interesting is the large number of people who prefer Google over the Yellow Pages. I don’t think businesses should completely set aside getting their listings in the yellow pages, but it’s definitely something to pay attention to when planning your marketing budget. If you start finding the same results with your local directory listings, it may be a good sign to place a little more emphasis on local search results.
If the Yellow Pages search dynasty hopes to survive, it needs to carve out its own niche. It needs to become indispensable in every day households and it needs to do it in a way that takes advantage of the large database of information they have access to.
Make Your Business Listing Stand Out:
Whether you choose to stick with Google, focus on directories like the Yellow Pages, or use both mediums, standing out and differentiating yourself from your competitors is absolutely vital!
