Giving small businesses a big presence online

In today’s busy online world, it’s getting harder for businesses to stand out from the crowd. Clickfind is an Australian website that is helping small businesses do just that.

How? By making its business listings available to Google and other search engines, Clickfind has expanded its service well beyond that of a business directory. Businesses listed on clickfind are within reach of a wider range of Internet users, not just those who use the clickfind website.  These users are not casual web surfers either; they are actively looking for products and services provided by Aussie businesses. So if a business has products and services listed on clickfind, they’ll have a better chance of being found on Google. Clickfind doesn’t just promote itself on Google; it promotes Australian businesses too.

Sounds like common sense, doesn’t it? Well, not all online directory services work that way.  Clickfind has again proven itself to be a milestone-setter in the industry. Established directory services like Yellow Pages used to exist as completely self-contained web directories. That was was fine when Yellow Pages were the definitive source for local businesses, but times have changed. After releasing a directory comparison and some press releases back in January 2008, Yellow Pages sat up, took notice and followed suit, opening up its listings to search engines. And why wouldn’t they? When you have the chance promote your customers’ services more widely, you owe it to them to do just that.

Optimising listings for better search engine (SEO) performance has been a decidedly good move for Clickfind. They had the instinct to build this in from the start, and are now reaping the rewards, receiving positive feedback from users and businesses alike. Numerous small business owners say they Google their business name and suburb, and find their Clickfind listing appears on page 1 of the Google search results even though they don’t have a website themselves!

To say that Clickfind provides good service is an understatement, having been recently nominated for awards such as the Fast Thinking Innovation Award and the Business Achiever Award.

Anchor text optimization SEO

We’ve just launched some new advanced SEO functionality on our Australian Search Engine, and it’s quite exciting.

We’ve been working together with some SEO experts and have taken some ideas on board, one of them being “Anchor text optimization”.

When we designed clickfind we decided to go for a very controlled environment and look and feel – making all the pages look the same, so that information will only be the deciding factor for users.

A disadvantage of this is that users are not able to control the text that links to their website. Anchor text plays an important part in SEO, and we’ve therefore implemented some advanced functionality that allows the user to specify up to 3 words they want to use for the anchor link text.

To make sure it does not get abused, we will monitor its usage and have limited the words to a maximum of 3.

Existing users of clickfind will find this functionality under
– My account
– Business listing
– Advanced SEO
– Anchor link text

Any questions or suggestions, please let us know 😉
