Why do I need South African business listings?

1. It’s good for Google

Citation building remains an important part of local SEO, and building and maintaining an accurate and relevant local set of citations is key.

Google will reference directories and local listings sites to find out more about a business. If you have key business information listed accurately and consistently across the web, then you are more likely to be viewed as an authoritative site by Google.

2. Local relevance is key

Local business owners in South Africa should take advantage of relevant local citation sources.

Whilst sites with high domain authority are valuable, SMBs and multi-location businesses can gain more local authority by getting listed on sites that are prevalent in their local area.

That comes from getting listed on niche local sites, such as event sites, local clubs and authorities, and hyper-local directories.
