We are providing a great new service to help you take control and get your site found online! See LocalLift or contact us to get started. LocalLift lets you control your listings across 60+ partner sites, including Google, Bing, Facebook, Foursquare, Yahoo, and Yelp.

What is Community Directory

Simply Local Search allows you to submit your business listing to more than 40 online local searches, such as Local Search Engines, Online Local Directories, 411 Directories, and GPS and Car Navigation systems. You enter the information about your business - your location, work hours, special products, your website (if you have one), contact information, etc. - in one convenient interface, which makes updating and maintaining easy.

  • This service is available for US-based customers only
  • You do NOT have to have a website or an online store to use this service
  • Not every local directory listing will display all the information you entered
  • It takes 8-10 weeks to propagate the information to all local searches
