SIM Partners manages more than 30,000 local search business listings through the Localeze Business Registration Manager (BRM) platform and sends weekly updates to ensure that their clients’ online local identities are up-to-date across Localeze’s broad local search platform partner network.
Business listings include consistent anchor name, address and phone number (NAP) information, as well as enhanced content like website links, hours of operation, payment methods, keywords and more.
