Get Your Micro-Entrepreneurial Business Listed by Search Engines
As soon as the website or blog for your micro-entrepreneurial business is up and running, you should get it listed on the major search engines. SEO (search engine optimization) can also improve awareness of your micro-entrepreneurial business by making it easier for potential customers to search for and find your business website, blog, Facebook page, and so on.
If your business is in a public venue (such as in a mall or downtown), go to sites such as GetListed.com and enter your business name and zip code so people can directly find your business. The site tells you whether you’re listed on the major search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo!, and so on.
If you aren’t listed, you can go to any of the major search engine sites and use their own search engine to do a search for “how to list a business on (insert search engine name).” It’s relatively easy to do.
Keep in mind that you can boost your SEO with business directories too. Manta is a large and popular directory, and you can create a free searchable listing for your business.
