Vanpages, Vancouver Local Business Directory, is a fully-functional yet interactive search system, a place where business owners can place information about their companies and products. Visitors can search the directory by using keywords, locations, and business and product names. Visitors can also review businesses and products.*
Unlike most other web directories, our free listing allows not only a business name, category and basic contact details (address, phone, fax, email) but also an informative description, website link, map, and more**
A paid listing offers many advanced features compared to a free one. For just $50 a year, you can upload your logo or photo; use text formatting feature; add a descriptive photoalbum, documents (Word, Excel, PDF), and information about special offers; and, of course, you will be placed on top of the list of a category or location.
What are the benefits? What is the biggest difference in this site compared to hundreds of other directories?
Our site was developed with search engine optimization (SEO) in mind. By listing your company on Vanpages, you will have a much better chance to improve your search engine ranking (SER) and get your website to the top of the search engine results. Even if your website is already there, you may take an extra position. We recommend, but don’t require, a link back to your directory listing from your website for better results. We also recommend adding an appropriate number of links from your directory page to different pages of your website, which will help drive new customers to your website.
Your company can become searchable even if you don’t have a website. Your listing will be searchable not only within the directory but also all over the web in major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and MSN (Bing). To make this happen, we recommend our affordable paid listing, so you can use all the features, such as a longer formatted description, adding a logo and photo album, advertising special offers, and meta tag keywords and descriptions. The most important benefit is that you will receive a dedicated permanent URL for your company, for example http://vanpages.ca/arcstream-metal-works.html, which you may refer to in your business communication. Of course, if you have a domain name but don’t have a website yet, you may point your domain to your directory page.
Our primary target market is Greater Vancouver (MetroVancouver) and the Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada, which includes such cities as Vancouver, West and North Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Coquitlam, New Westminster, Surrey, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, White Rock, Langley and all others. We also include some other distant cities, such as Whistler, Squamish, Kelowna, Victoria, Nanaimo, and others. In addition, we welcome businesses from other parts of British Columbia, other Canadian provinces, and the U.S. on the condition that they provide distant services and Vancouver is a part of their target market.
