If you have ever stepped into the waters of local SEO, you will know that it is much deeper than it appears. It is critical to unify and manage business data across the whole internet, and it is no piece of cake.
We are happy to announce our new Listing Management tool, the fruit of collaboration between SEMrush and Yext, and a simple solution to all your NAP-related problems.
NAP stands for Name, Address, Phone number. For a business to rank well in local search results it is critical to keep NAP consistent, not only on its own website, but also on numerous other sites that Google uses to cross-check and validate that data.
Yext is a technology company that helps businesses manage their online presence and the public facts about their brands. The cloud-based platform called the "Yext Knowledge Engine" includes numerous maps, apps, search engines, intelligent GPS systems, digital assistants, vertical directories, and social networks.
How our tool helps with local SEO
The Listing Management tool uses Yext’s network to automatically distribute business data to the most authoritative directories. We’ll cover you on Yelp, Foursquare, TripAdvisor, FaceBook, Apple Maps, Yahoo, Bing, and many, many more directories.
You will be able to edit business data across all directories at once!
All you have to do is input the data and find the location:
You will be presented with a list of your listings and its status:
Now, you can proceed to payment, and let the tool do its work.
Yext functionality comes with a price, but our agreement with them allows us to charge our users only 20$ a month, instead of 500$ a year (as in Yext’s subscription), and that is more than a 50% discount, which is a very reasonable offer.
Our paid subscribers get to employ all Yext capabilities on top of SEMrush for only 20$.
Open Beta Status
The Listing Management tool is now in open beta, which means that it is fully functional, but we’ll keep polishing it and adding new features. Be aware that for now Listing Management is only available for US.
