MapQuest Local Business Center (LBC) is shutting down

MapquestlogonewWe wanted to inform you that the basic version of the MapQuest Local Business Center (LBC) is shutting down. As of January 31, 2014, you will no longer be able to access your listings account within the basic version of the LBC.

What does this mean for businesses? Well, life may have gotten a bit more complicated. On the other hand, it may have you reviewing how you appear on the Internet. Packerland Websites provides services to see that you are listed properly along with valuable and legitimate incoming links to your business.

There are fifty key directories you want to be listed on and listed accurately. Many do give listings for free and often times they may or may not be accurate. They also give you a NAP. This is not sleepy time. It is you name, address and phone number only.

Good SEO had many of us going in and claiming business listing to give more information by hand. This is time consuming, dull, loaded with future junk mail and it may be inputted the best it can be.

Would you like to know how your business appears? Great, I have the tool for you on my website at Packerland’s Online Business Scan Page in which you can use my online business scanner to check.

Making sure you are listed on directories and listed properly is good SEO. We not only help with this, but we can add in images, videos, categories, decryptions offers and much more. Plus, when we set it up, your listing is a power listing, which ranks and is found quicker than the free non powered NAP listings.

I expect other directory sites will be going this route as well. Things are Free for only so long. It is my business to help your business gets found. So, get it done by January 31 or contact me and see how I can help your presence out on the Internet.
