What Is Local Search Fuel?

Local Search Fuel is a local search optimization solution that cleans up, optimizes, and maintains your business information across hundreds of websites and online directories that influence how local businesses are displayed in Google search results. Major directories Local Search Fuel manages for you include Google Business Profile, Bing, Yahoo, Yelp, Yellow Pages, and more.

What Does Local Search Fuel Do for My Business?

Local Search Fuel updates the following business information to be accurate and optimized across hundreds of online business directories:

  • Business Name, Address, & Phone Number
  • Hours of Operation
  • Business Categories

It’s important for your business information to be listed accurately and consistently across these directories, as Google relies on the information provided by these directories to validate your business.
