Did you know that eight out of ten people who search local business information on a mobile device end up making a visit, a call or a sale? So what happens if the information they find is incomplete, inconsistent or even incorrect? At best consumers are annoyed. At worst they lose trust in the brand. In fact, 71 percent of consumers say they lost trust in a business after finding inconsistent location data online. Businesses spend so much effort building their digital brand presence, but they often neglect an important area that has the potential to bring big returns – online directories.
Having a consistent listing in online outlets can make a positive difference. It not only creates consumer trust and improves visibility but also tells search engines that your B2B or B2C business is legitimate, resulting in improved search engine rankings. How’s that for big returns?
At Infinite Web Designs we pride ourselves on helping our clients maximize their online presence. That’s why we’re introducing Infinite Web Directory Solutions (IWDS) – a valuable management tool that brings together all the information about a business, from physical location to service areas, into one cohesive digital footprint.
Imagine the visibility that comes with being listed consistently in 50+ online outlets. Imagine the kind of presence and authority that consistency creates with search engines, which in turn increases visibility even more. And imagine the target customers you could reach with that kind of visibility.
With IWDS you don’t have to worry about which directories you’re listed in, which service data is listed in which directory or how your name, address and phone number are listed. That is all managed for you. We take care of your online presence so you can focus on what you do best.
How specifically can IWDS help my digital presence?
Some of the positive effects of local digital presence management include an increase in visibility across all search engines, an increase in website traffic and quality back links to your website.
So what exactly does IWDS do?
We make sure your business citations are listed in the most important high-traffic directories, social networks and data aggregators. We review, correct and optimize the listings and provide you with real-time progress reports and updates.
What about industry specific directories?
In addition to well-known directories like Google, Bing, Yelp, etc. we also have access to several industry-specific directories for professions including:
– Home services
– Financial services
– Health and wellness
If your industry is not listed please contact us.
What does the IWDS service include?

What does a baseline report tell me?
A baseline report includes both a visibility score, which displays the average score for your initial local page (determined by your average visibility and optimization in Google+ Local, Yahoo Local and Bing Places) and a directory score (derived by dividing the number of directories in which you were found by the number checked.) These scores serve as the starting point with which to monitor your results.
How long does it take before I see results?
You will typically see positive results within 30 days.
