One can’t create duplicate listings in Foursquare. If there’s an existing listing, we will report it to you so you can decide if you would like us to claim it. Otherwise, should Foursquare creation be part of your package, we will create and optimize a new listing for you.
Duplicate Facebook Places Analysis
Facebook allows people to share where they’ve been, where they’re headed and where they are now. This feature is an opportunity for businesses to promote their products and services within their local area.
We will find duplicate Places for your business by searching for its name or locations where people made when they checked in. If we found duplicates, we will claim and merge the duplicates to keep your customers’ likes and check-ins in one place.
Duplicate Bing Local Analysis
Having your business added properly in Bing Business Portal is an important step in improving your local presence. Bing is one of the major search engines where you can have your business listed and verified.
We will find duplicate listings in Bing by searching for its name or locations and report it to Bing if we find any duplicates.
Business Address Consistency Check among Existing Directories
It’s important for your Business Name, Address, and Phone Number to be recorded consistently across all the main search engines and local directories. Inaccurate information can be confusing for customers and more so for Google. Google likes to verify the information it holds about your business with other sources such as local online directories.
It is ideal that your Name, Address, and Phone Number are the same on each site. If there are any discrepancies, appropriate measures should be implemented. Addressing inaccurate results by claiming your listing on those directories and correcting the erroneous information effectively resolves this issue.
