Web host and domain name provider GoDaddy
has announced the introduction of ‘Get Found’, a new service that is an extension of the Locu solution the company bought in August of 2013. Get Found enables small businesses to “attract new customers” on key internet websites.
Keeping information current on the Internet is good for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Get Found allows businesses to add up-to-date operational information such as phone numbers, location, operation hours to search engines, social media, and mobile apps, and keep it up to date. The system also allows businesses to update menus and add current images to their Internet presence. Sites that Get Found impacts include Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yelp, Foursquare, Yellowpages, Citysearch, and TripAdvisor.
"An average consumer uses more than two different online sources when looking for information about a business, and when they see missing or conflicted information, they usually go to a competitor," explained Rene Reinsberg, GoDaddy’s Vice President and General Manager of Discovery Marketing Products. "Businesses miss potential revenue when they can't be found online, and we are making it drop-dead simple for them to get onto all the top websites."
