The description plays a vital role in indexing correctly by Google. Less than the recommended 300 words will always mean fewer opportunities. After the Next step button has been clicked, a confirmation is displayed. We check every listing conforms to our requirements and an email is sent after activation or rejection. Please allow up to 48 hours.
The description is what Google indexes and catalogues a website. Too little information will mean the business cannot be located in search results.
Every Business Listing is automatically added to the Directory Sitemap, which lists all registered businesses. This sitemap is indexed frequently by Google and Bing, ensuring your listing is up to date if changes have been made.
