As the GoJD website climbs up the Google, Yahoo and Bing search engine ladders for various key search terms, it will be increasingly important to make sure that your directory listing is as efficient as it can be for your marketing needs.

This article is a brief rundown of the features of the directory and what you can do for maximum benefit.

 

 

Images

Your listing has the facility to upload a maximum of 9 images into the gallery, one banner and one thumbnail icon image.

Google map.

Add the longitude and latitude figures for your postcode to display a google map of your company location.

These can be found here:

Latitude and Longitude locator

Your contact details.

Postal address, email address, web address, contact name and telephone number.

Description of your company, products and services.

This is by far the most important aspect of your listing. The description can be as elaborate as you like and is, in effect, a mini website/advert for your company and an ideal tool for your internet marketing strategy.

After you have optimised your website for your chosen keywords and phrases, your next priority should be to build up links to it by writing and submitting articles to article submission sites (eg. www.ezinearticles.com), directories, and social media sites such as forums and facebook.

With regard to your GoJD directory listing, an ideal length would be somewhere between 300 - 600 words interspersed with various textual links to the relevant pages in your website.
