Describing Your Business With BizTags
BizTags are words that describe key aspects of your business. They help users narrow their search for the type of businesses they're looking for.
Users can browse BizTags in the BizBlog Directory. If I'm looking for a videographer for my wedding, I may click on BizTags like 'video', 'videography', or 'DVD'.
When choosing BizTags, think of words used to describe your business. Think like your customers here. What would they type into a search engine to find your kind of business? Don't forget location information. It's wise to include the region and towns/cities you cover.
Make sure your tags are properly formatted. Each tag can contain multiple words, but stay away from using all caps and special characters like &, !, and $.
The most important thing to remember is that all BizTags must be separated by a comma. If you don't separate tags with a comma you'll end up with one really long tag, which defeats the purpose.
Here is an example of what BizTags a picture framing business might use:
To add or edit BizTags associated with your business, login to your BizBlog and locate the BizTag section in the left column. You are limited to 15 BizTags, so choose your words wisely.
The first three BizTags will also appear in the page title. So place your most significant BizTags as the first three in the list. We found that search engines give a lot of weight to page titles and including your top three BizTags can make a difference in your page rank.
