Frequently Asked Questions
How will a Local Search Profile benefit my business?
What search engines will I be listed on?
|When you create a Local Search Profile with Vistaprint, we will distribute that information to more than 100 search sites as well as publishing it on your own page in the Vistaprint Business Directory. Your business information will be added to search engine listings where you aren’t currently appearing, and your most current information will be updated in other search engines where you already are listed. Your subscription also gives you the ability to add a description of your business and to add rich content like a logo or images of your business which many search engines display alongside your search results, improving your search results and driving new customers to your business.
Do I have to have a Vistaprint Website?
|Your Local Search Profile information will be distributed to Google(R) Maps, Yahoo(R) Local, Microsoft Bing(TM), Yellowpages.com(TM), Comcast.net Search, DexKnows(TM) Online Search Profile, Open List(R), Yellowbook(TM), Kudzu.com(R), and many more. Altogether, your listing will be distributed to more than 100 search sites.
Do I have to have any website at all?
|No! You can use an Local Search Profile to promote your business regardless of where you host your website, or even if you have no website at all. All you need is a US street address and a phone number.
Can I sign up if I'm outside the US?
|No! You can use a Local Search Profile to promote your business even if you have no website at all. All you need is a US street address and a phone number. And when you subscribe, you'll get a page of your own in the Vistaprint Business Directory.
What is the Vistaprint Business Directory?
|No, we only offer Local Search Profiles to customers with US addresses at this time.
What additional benefits do I get if I also have a Vistaprint Website?
|The Vistaprint Business Directory contains many profiles of businesses like yours across the country. Your business will have its own profile page with information about your business, published instantly when you update your Local Search Profile. It provides a trusted source of information for search engines confirming what you already have on your own website and boosting your search ranking.
What are HCARD and geo-sitemaps?
|If you add a Local Search Profile to your Vistaprint Website, we will tune it up with three different recommended search optimizations the next time you republish your site. We'll update your page titles, we'll add a recommended address footer in HCARD format, and we'll add a geo-sitemap to the whole site.
Why would I want to upload a logo?
|HCARDs and geo-sitemaps are two formats used to encode information which are recommended by search engines to ensure that your business is found in search listings. Vistaprint makes it easy for you by automatically passing information in these formats to search engines without requiring you to do any work.
What if I don't have a logo to upload?
|If you add your logo to your Local Search Profile, we will distribute it to more than 100 search engines. Many search engines will use this logo along with your search listing to improve the look and ranking of your listing. Having a logo will attract potential customers to your listing and drive more business to you!
Can I tell what results I'm getting?
|If you don't have a logo, you can provide any picture you like that represents your business. For instance, you can show a picture of your storefront, or of yourself hard at work. Anything colorful and eye-catching could work well.
Can I tell how exactly many visitors I got because of my Local Search Profile?
|We provide tools that let you verify at a glance that the major search engines have your correct and current information.
What if I need to cancel my account?
|Not necessarily. The Local Search Profile service will make sure search engines have your correct address and phone number in their results, such as on Google(R) Maps. This will drive customers to your store or to call you directly, without ever visiting your website or Vistaprint Business Directory page. That's great! But it does mean that we can't track how they found out about you.
How long will it take to distribute my profile information?
|Canceling your account is easy. Just call us (toll-free) at 1-866-811-1674. When you call, we may ask you to give us feedback about how we can improve our service. We appreciate any comments you may have as we are always trying to improve.
Why don’t I see my business in search results?
|Unfortunately, it depends on the search engine. When you publish your profile data, the Vistaprint Business Directory will be updated immediately, but other sites will take longer. Some may be updated in as little as a week; others will take 6-10 weeks.
How can I improve my ranking with Local Search Profile?
|Because of the way search engines process data and update their business listings, it can take 6 to 10 weeks for changes you make on your Profile here to be fully distributed and show up in results. Please be patient. If you’d like to add your business to Google, Yelp and Facebook sooner, you can use our free Online Guide to see immediate results.
How long does it take to fix my listing on a search engine?
|Please see the articles on the Market Your Business tab for suggestions. In addition, you can use the free Online Guide to enhance your listing on the most popular directories, including Google.
