Hello everyone, i have just had the first local business conatct me through my contact form and add their business to my site - I just wanted to share it with someone becasue its really made me very happy, I havnt advertised the site yet, this company has just found it from a internet search and decided they want their business on it :)

I am currently adding a indivual page for each business in the area, Peter gave me the idea of adding a map to each business and i ran with it, the best thing about it is; that the meta content for that page is just about that business, i'm hoping for excellent SEO results after the next crawl - keep your fingers crossed for me :)

'Advanced taxis' just added their details to http://hexham.info/taxi their business card is at http://hexham.info/advanced-taxis

Big thanks to Peter and everyone else here for all the support you have all given me

Lee.

Woohoo Lee,

That one says a lot. No crowd following, purely their own judgement. That's fantastic.

Congratulations for sticking with the vision. You're off and moving!
I really am thrilled for you.

thanks Peter - i know its my site, but because of all the help you have all given me at getsatisfaction it feels like a community effort.
PS what do you think of the 'business card' individual company pages? I'm hoping (praying) they will help my google ranks - Lee.

I'm sitting here thinking about the SEO rankings and the bus card aspect. There's no criteria that jumps out at me and says yes. But at the same time it's a draw card for people who want to know where , when and why.That of course becomes part of the PR and certainly as that increases so will your rankings.

Service to users is very hard to quantitate (i'm sure Google are working on it) but satisfaction must have a spin off.

"Where would I find a jeweller at 9 pm at night to remove a gold ring from my swollen finger after I jammed it in the door?" The answer is there. Contact details and how to get there.! The Search would find that most certainly because your business card holder has it all there & searchable.

Just don't know how to put a number on it Lee.

i was hoping because of the fact the window title, keywords and content is only about that business it would show up better when people searched for that business, espeicially smaller businesses without internet presence.
