MapQuest’s Local Business Center wants businesses to make the most out of their listings. We’ve gone over how to get the most out of a basic listing and how to improve SEO with keywords and categories. In this post, we’ll show you how to customize the company location on MapQuest’s maps. With the Map Marker Locator you can pinpoint exactly where the company location is and map nearby parking. Once the map location is up-to-date, our 42 million users will be able to find your business listing with ease.
When filling out the listing, you will be asked, “Does the business location look correct to you?” Next to the question appears a map showing a marker where MapQuest pinpointed the business address. Take time and make sure the location is accurate; if the location is incorrect, now is a quick and easy chance to fix it.
To get started, just click on the map. From here, you can drag the marker around until the correct location has been found. The marker can be placed anywhere, even if the location is a mile off the main road, the marker can go there. This is helpful for customers who may not know there is a long driveway or access road to the location.
Ensure Accurate Directions
Click the next button to edit the access point to your location. MapQuest uses this icon to calculate directions. This is helpful if the road to the building is in an unexpected location or if businesses prefer to direct people to a parking lot. The red marker with the car can be moved, but unlike the Map Marker it has to be placed on an road.
MapQuest’s Map Marker Locator tool is ready for businesses to use and map out their location. Companies can update, move, and zoom until comfortable with the marker location and know that every aspect of their listing is correct. Improve and update your listing today at listings.mapquest.com.
