Business listings are an online summary of business information for your business that serves as a powerful tool to help customers find you online and in real life.
All of the information that should be included in a business listing can be summed up as NAP+W.
Name - Address - Phone number + Website
These four pieces of information provide the basic information customers need to have in order to research, contact, and locate your business physically and online.

Will my listings work?
The effectiveness of a business listing depends on presence and accuracy. Listings are available through search engines, online directories, and maps, or social sites. When it comes to listings presence, more is definitely better. When your listing is available on as many online sources as possible this creates multiple avenues for consumers to find your business. But (and this is a big but), presence only pays off if the listings are accurate. Listings are accurate if the information is correct and consistent across all potential sources. Seems easy enough, right?
Listings with good presence and accuracy will undoubtedly pay off for your business because:
Consistent, accurate listings and the generation of reviews will directly benefit a business’s visibility by boosting its ranking in local search engine results.
