We’re looking at the importance of building niche citations from vertical directories.
Are Your Clients Listed on Niche Vertical Directories?
In recent weeks, our focus has been on the various dimensions of our data amplifier network. Essentially, these are the integrated channels that ensure your clients’ businesses get found on Google Search, maps, mobile apps, wearables, GPS devices and a host of other platforms.
One of the underappreciated parts of business data distribution is vertical directories. Unlike the broad publishing outlets such as Google Business Profile and Yelp, vertical directories focus exclusively on a tightly-defined industry.
These vertical-specific listings offer businesses the chance to build valuable niche citations that are an integral part of local SEO. As you’ll know, Google’s primary ranking factors are proximity, prominence and relevance. Well, it’s the last of these three factors – relevance – that is enhanced when your clients get listed in niche-specific directories.
At Advice Local, we build niche citations in two vertical directory categories – healthcare and legal. Using directories like FindLaw, LegalReach, LawLink, RateMDs, Healthcare Reviews and eLocal Doctors, agencies working with doctors, dentists, hospitals and lawyers get direct access to niche, authority platforms through our business listings management services.
