Webs Local Listings

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a skill that many small business owners work hard to master. Not only do they want people to find their small business website, but they want potential customers to see their location, store hours, social media profiles, and any other web presence that will convince customers to do business with them instead of a competitor.

One of the best ways to reach SEO success with minimal effort is to perfect your business’ local listing. If you need some background, we have written a number of articles on this topic:



While big box brands may have the budget to reach a national audience, small businesses have a distinct advantage on the local stage. Not only are people gravitating more and more toward local businesses (48% plan to increase local patronage), these smaller brands are able to leverage local search listings more effectively if they know what to do.

If the hipster movement has taught us nothing else, it’s that people want the things they eat, the clothes they wear, and the places they shop to say something about them as individuals. In that environment, the local business will beat out a national chain in local search results any day. Take advantage of that starting point by making the most of your local listing. How?

Every few weeks, we feature Webs users here on the blog and highlight many of the interesting ways that they are using Webs to create truly stunning websites.

Recently, we’ve featured a dance psychologist, a beautiful art store, and a Turkish ice cream company!

In those posts, we’ve shared how you can achieve similar designs, use the same features, and learn from the experience of others.

Today we’d like to dig a little deeper and share a full small business success story. Several weeks ago, I reached out to Kerri, the owner of Majestic Wonders Photography, to see if she would be interested in sharing her story on the Webs blog. As a product owner on the Webs team, I was interested to hear more about her experiences with Webs and how our products helped her business succeed.



We’re incredibly excited to announce the addition of a new tool to the Webs platform that will help businesses save a significant amount of time, money, and headaches in getting their business listed everywhere online.

Introducing Webs Local Search: The easiest way to list your business everywhere online.

What Is Local Search?

Why Are You Building Your Website?

It’s a simple question that probably has a simple answer.  We’ve found that most of our customers build a website to attract new customers to their business, to create a digital presence for their brand or service, to sell products online, or to build an online community.

However, all of these different site-building goals have one thing in common: they won’t work if your site can’t be found. 

While SEO Booster is a great way to perfect your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategy for Google or Bing, your business, group, or site also needs a strong Local Search strategy to connect the digital to the physical world.
