Does it Matter To Customers If a Single Business Listing Is Incorrect Online?

When an online local listing for a business is incorrect, who’s to blame? The business owner? The search engine? The competition?

Regardless of fault, the majority of people (73 percent) say they lose trust in the local business when it happens. And 67 percent say the same if they get lost due to faulty location information. This, according to recent survey data released by Placeable.

Consumers lose trust in the brand


Consumers lose trust if they get lost driving due to an incorrect address listed online

“It is vital that multi-location businesses preserve customer trust by ensuring absolute accuracy in their online location information. Anything less makes the business vulnerable to a constant, ongoing erosion of its brand,” Placeable said in its report. “Brands that fail to ensure the accuracy of search engine location data run the risk of not only missing out on new customers, but jeopardizing their relationships with existing customers as well. “Even when the business listing is incorrect in directories like Yelp, nearly a third of consumers say they blame the brand.



Having an accurate listing is especially vital given research findings that show 71 percent of survey respondents look up and confirm the location of a local business before going to it for the first time.
