CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Business Listing, a service of UBL Interactive, Inc., today announced the release of an expanded service to help businesses achieve "claimed" and verified profile status on major search engines and directories. This is in response to the increasing awareness among companies and Local SEO experts that verified profiles enhance the status and visibility of listings in local and mobile search, driving more business for SMBs or the branches of multi-location corporations or franchises. A verified listing in local search is where the business owner claims its location on a search site, through phone, email or postcard response, allowing them to password-protect and enhance the profile. The expanded UBL service creates and enhances profiles on Google+, Bing, Yahoo, Mapquest, Superpages, YP.com and Yelp, as well as creating locally optimized profiles on Facebook and Twitter. This process is in addition to UBL's core syndication of listings which reach hundreds of search, mobile and social sites, seen at www.UBL.org. "We have witnessed growing demand and appreciation of the value for these services," said Chris Travers, President of Universal Business Listing. "We have a specialized team, leveraging our Patent pending technical process for making this work across large numbers of publisher sites and customer locations very efficiently." UBL will be presenting this at the International Franchise Association's conference in Las Vegas this week. It will also be showing new tools for multi-location companies and franchises to manage website store locators as part of a listing management system.
