Basic Local SEO – Step 12

To Do:

Sign up for Yahoo! Local Enhanced Listing (Completion of this task requires payment)

Yahoo! Local Enhanced Listing costs an additional $9.95 a month on top of your free Yahoo! Local profile listing. We recommend this for-fee listing for three reasons:

1. It has shown that an enhanced listing improves your rank within Yahoo! Local.

2. The listing allows you to add more content that can help your Yahoo! profile show up more prominently in all search engines.

3. It provides an area for three links that you can use to link back to specific pages on your site or one of your other profiles (ex. MerchantCircle).

How to complete?

Click here to get your Yahoo! Local Enhanced Listing.

Consider the following tips to get the full value from this listing:

1. As with other profiles, complete all available fields.

2. Use all three link locations to create links to pages on your website or other prominent profiles (Google Pages, MerchantCircle, Yelp, etc).

3. Be sure to use your targeted keywords as the names of your links. For example, instead of using as the text of the link, use Chicago Dentist as the text with the link still linking to your MerchantCircle profile.
