Why Isn't My Business Listed First?

Businesses appear at the top of the list due to their ranking first, and alphabetical order second. Ranking is determined by the amount of relevant information contained in your listing. The more information relevant to the search term, the higher your ranking. Relevant information can be contained in:

  • business description, including brand information
  • web address (URL)
  • product and service areas - categories that you add to your listing
  • articles (particularly the headlines) that you add to your listing

The more relevant information you have on your company listing pertaining to a particular search phrase, the more likely you are to appear on the first page of results for that search phrase.
