HubShout SEM System Help

Local Campaigns vs none local (SEO)

  • Eric R Reply

    Hey guys, sorry for the delayed response. To put some things into perspective for the local program, for the small-medium plans we currently target 3 main local listing sites - Google, Yahoo, Bing. Like Adam mentioned, we have some barriers to the verification process, but there is also an issue of certain sites and directories that are only for US businesses. The US local search ecosystem is completely different from Canada, UK, and Australia.

    As for sending a support ticket to resellers to claim these listings, that is hit or miss because some resellers expect the HubShout analyst to do all the work and don’t want to be bothered with the local profiles. Others are very hands on, and have no problem with doing a little extra work. If we forwarded “claiming” tasks on to resellers, there’s not a 100% chance it will get done. That could create another barrier for resellers who don’t know how to set up the profiles correctly, which would then create more problems for their clients down the road.

    As a result, clients outside of the US should use one of our regular (non-local) SEO plans.
