yext dashboard offers easy management of local search listings

Posted on 2/7/2013 by Byron Clarke

So what is Local Search? Local Search is when the end user scans the Internet for information that is geographically constrained ... ie. a database or directory of local business listings. Typical local search queries include not only information about "what" the site visitor is searching for (such as keywords, a business category, or the name of a consumer product) but also "where" information, such as a street address, city name, postal code, or geographic coordinates like latitude and longitude.

Examples of local searches include "New Orleans hotels", "Denver restaurants", or "Orlando theme parks".

yext offers a dashboard that allows site owners to manage local listings across more than 40 different web sites and mobile enabled web sites. These listings are called PowerListings since they display the information at the top of the listings.

The Top 5 reason to use the yext dashboard to control your listing information are...

1. Appear in the most possible local searches with Guaranteed Presence...
PowerListings makes sure your listings are present with the correct information. It automatically adds missing listings, and it updates critical fields like name, address, phone number, and categories across our network. Change your information anytime and it will update everywhere.

2. Stand out and look great with Enhanced Listings...
Add Photos, Descriptions, Promotions, to your listings on each site on our network. Let your customers know about specials, new products, important announcements, changing hours, or anything else. Simply enter the information into your PowerListings account and watch updates occur across the network at blazing fast speeds.

3. See what customers are saying about you with Review Monitoring...
When Yext powers up your listings on a partner, we actively monitor your listing for reviews. Anytime you get a review, it appears in your Yext account under the Reviews tab. Search your reviews for keywords you care about. Filter your reviews by site or by location. Save, export, e-mail all of your reviews. See aggregate stats on # of reviews and your average ratings.

4. Track local search performance with full analytics...
Track your impressions and profile views at the local level by partner with full analytics on your local search performance. See which specials you run drive you more traffic, and watch if you get a lift from filling out your listings with rich content.

5. Single-Point Control Saves you Hours...
Since Yext PowerListings automatically updates your information across our network, you don't have to spend hours managing dozens of individual accounts for each site. Setup takes just minutes and your listings will go live in no time!
