Take Control of Your Local Listings

Our goal at MerchantCircle is to connect local shoppers with the best local merchants. We’ve worked tirelessly to make it easy for people to find great businesses that provide quality services. Our desire to connect shoppers and businesses continues even when these shoppers may be searching elsewhere on the Web. That’s why we’ve partnered with Yext to ensure that MerchantCircle members can get found regardless of where shoppers are searching.

Guaranteed Presence

Yext PowerListings allows businesses to control their local search listings across 35 search engines and directories including MerchantCircle, Yahoo! And Yelp. Not only does Yext PowerListings ensure that the name, address and phone number are correct across their network, but it also allows businesses to highlight their listings with special offers, detailed business descriptions, photos and other enhanced content.

Save Time

Business owners no longer have to individually contact and verify their listings on each search engine or directory. PowerListings users can quickly and easily make changes to all of the listings within the PowerListings dashboard.

Track Results

PowerListings gives business owners the ability to see how many times their listing showed in the search results as well as how many times their business profile was viewed. With Yext’s granular tracking and reporting businesses have complete insight and control over their local search results.

How does your business look online?

As a business owner, you might not even be aware of how your business information appears across the Internet. Yext makes it extremely easy to find out with their free business listing report. Simply enter your business information as you would like it to appear, and Yext will create a report detailing everywhere your business information is missing or inaccurate.

Yext PowerListings has already helped thousands of local businesses gain control of their local listings, and we hope it can help you!
