PictureMost Common Problems, according to an article in Search Engine Land

Consumers turn to the internet daily to find local businesses. Many times listings are inaccurate with wrong contact information or addresses due to businesses moving around, etc.

First and foremost you NEED to have your business listed on as many online local business listing sites. Most sites will encourage you to upgrade to primo packages, but free listing is as good as any. Make sure to add as much information as possible, such as pictures, hours, awards, reviews, etc. This helps with rankings in the major search engines.

Listing your business takes time. Some take five minutes, some require phone verification, some just need email verification, while others send you a verification code via mail.

If you happen to move your business or change any contact information, make sure to edit your NAP (Name, Phone number, Address) information. If your business has inaccurate listings, major search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo will penalize your website-putting your business listing farther away from page one.
