Yelp is a fast-growing local business directory where users can review businesses and post them for the entire community to read. Positive reviews are extremely important for businesses and can help sway customers to choose your business over your competitors. Thanks to the “check-in” feature on Yelp, the directory has become a major player in mobile search. When users visit the business location they can “check-in” and display your business information on their social networks to tell all of their friends where they are. Some businesses draw people in offering special discounts to customers who “check-in” on Yelp. This network is only getting more as popular time goes on.

InfoUSA is a Core Data Provider (CDP). Core Data Providers benefit local SEO in two major ways.
1) Consistency. When your business information is distributed throughout the Internet, it’s crucial that the information is consistent. This is because inconsistent data confuses the search engines and your potential customers. Inconsistent data could be anything from a small difference like “RelevantAds, Inc.” as compared to “Relevant Ads, Inc.” or a large change in the information like two different addresses in the business location. When there is inconsistent data, the search engines don’t know which information is right and as a result, your rankings will fall. CDPs make sure this doesn’t happen by distributing consistent, correct, SEO-friendly data across the Web.
2) Popularity. CDPs offer your consistent business information to hundreds of online destinations (websites & directories). The more directories that decide to use that information the more popular your business information becomes. Google likes popular business information and rewards those businesses with higher search engine page rankings. We often refer to local SEO as being an online popularity contest. Whichever business can be found in the most destinations will have a competitive advantage in appearing higher in search engine results.
