Business Coverage - FAQ's

  1. What is Business Coverage?

    Business Coverage is a functionality that allows you to list your business in multiple suburb locations. You will rank on more pages, extend your business reach, and receive more potential customer opportunities. Read below for details.

  2. How can I get access to Business Coverage?

    Featured Listings have access to this functionality. The number of suburbs you can choose depends on the package you have selected. If you need coverage in more than 1 location, consider an upgrade to Featured.

  3. How much does a Featured Listing cost?

    There are 3 package options available to choose from with varying price points and features. Check your options.

  4. I have a Featured Listing, how can I increase my Business Coverage?

    The higher the package you select, the greater the Business Coverage you can achieve (up to 30 suburbs). Check your options.

  5. What if I need more than 30 suburbs?

  6. Why can I select suburbs but not regions?

    When you select a suburb to increase your Business Coverage, the system automatically creates a branch to your listing and includes you in the relevant region. This means you automatically also rank on the area, region and state pages, not just the suburb page you selected.

  7. Why can’t I select a whole region at once to cover all the suburbs I want?

    As explained above, you will already be ranking in the area and region pages linked to your suburb location. If you wish to appear on more suburb pages within an area or region, you will need to upgrade your package and then you can select up to 30 suburbs. If you need more than 30 suburbs, please contact us.

  8. What if I provide services or products across a state or the whole country?

    Mobile and online businesses can select suburbs anywhere across the country. Select one of these options (mobile/online) in the Basic Details section in your Members Area, upgrade and add 30 of the most relevant suburbs to your business from across the country.

  9. Why does more Business Coverage mean more reach?

    The number of suburbs you select can instantly and significantly boost the number of search result pages your listing appears on, and the locations in which your business may be relevant to receive leads.

    Below explains what you get with a Free Listing versus a Featured Listing with respect to Business Coverage:

    Free Listings: Business Coverage is limited to 1 suburb.
    Your business listing will show search result pages, but you will rank lower than Featured Listings. Your ranking success also depends on the competitiveness of each category and the location and the quality of your listing. If you choose a Free Listing, your business listing could appear on dozens of pages.

    Featured Listings: Business Coverage can include up to 30 additional suburbs.
    You will instantly and significantly boost the number of search result pages you rank on and will automatically rank above any Free Listings on these pages. As a result, you will receive a bigger share of the 1,150,000+ customer contacts we send to businesses each year, helping you to extend your reach.
    Your rank will also depend on the competitiveness of each category and location and the quality of your listing. If you choose a Featured Listing, your business listing could rank on hundreds of pages.

  10. Does Business Coverage help rank higher on these extra pages?

    Business Coverage gives you the opportunity to rank on more search result pages. Your rankings on each of these pages will depend on your selected package, the competitiveness of each category and location, and the quality of your listing.

    To rank higher on search result pages and convert more visitors into customers, make sure you have a Featured Listing which is complete, up-to-date and professional.

  11. Why does more Business Coverage drive more customer lead opportunities?

    When customers request a service, these opportunities are sent out to relevant local businesses. By selecting more suburbs, you will be relevant to more customers requesting a service and thus receive more lead opportunities from these customers.

  12. Why does more business Coverage drive more ranking on more pages?

    Your existing category pages will combine with the new suburb pages.

    The table below is an example of how it works for a single category and a single suburb. Repeat this theory for each of your selected suburbs and categories, and you will be able to calculate the total number of search result pages your listing may rank on.
