Hi everybody,

I've setup the new tilers directory and started to transfer old listings over to it. But it's doing my head in now. So I'll show you how to do it instead.

Do it in these stages and you will rank well in search engines. The listings I've done are already ranking one first page of search engines, if not top of second. And the more listings we have, the more links to each other they all have, and the better they will all rank. So this is a collective thing.

  1. The first step is to find the main category you want to rank for / live in. (Click HERE to open the directory in a new window) Don't add your listing to more than one for now, it will have adverse affects because you will confuse search engines. Just let it rank you well in one County for the time being. And then I'll monitor stats and give you all the nod if and when it's okay to rank in more than one category.
  2. Once you've found the County, click "Add Resource".
  3. Fill in all the boxes that you can. Link to your website if you have one. Stick your phone number in. Check all the boxes for the types of tiling you can do.
  4. Your LISTING TITLE can be different from your BUSINESS NAME - Click HERE to look at the few I've done, and I've repeated the area's I want the listings to rank for in the BUSINESS TITLE, TAG LINE and LISTING TITLE - So that's THREE area's you're telling Google what you want to rank for.
That brings you to the main content of the main area. Take a look at THIS listing. I have included a list of towns in the listing, and varied the description of tiling types in those areas. I've also included a photo or two, that's important too. You need around 300 words in that page somehow. So waffle on. If needs be, copy and paste some feedbacks from your other sites or whatever, and those count too. But unique content is best. So the rules for the main listing bit (if you want to rank well) are:-
  • Add 2 or 3 images at least (and perhaps a link to you media gallery on the forum). You can click copy on any image anywhere and then click paste into the content area, and the forum will automatically upload it to your listing for you.
  • Add the areas where you do your business, and what types of tiling you do, in a bullet pointed list
  • Make sure you waffle a lot - 300 words is the magic number (about 5 paragraphs say? - no need to count them)
I don't mind using this thread as a discussion thread to talk about how to rank your listings well. So please feel free to reply to it if you get stuck.

Please spend half hour doing this for me. It's a one-time thing, you update it once every 6 months and it'll keep ranking well. You WILL get calls from this in nearly all areas. London might be hard. I'll help guys in harder areas once we have a bunch of listings in them.

Good luck. :)
