Local Search Marketing Campaign

A local business listing is an online profile that contains your business/DBA name, address, phone number, and other details. There are number of websites and directories on which local business owners are allowed to create free business listings. Some you may already have heard about include Google+ Local, Yelp, Bing Places, Internet or Web Yellow Pages, and Yahoo! Local.
