Get Found on Mobile Devices, Smart Phones, Local Search
Did you know that 40% of all smart phone and mobile device searches are for local businesses? And, 61% of smart phone owners perform local searches. Joomple is a local search engine for not only PC's, but also Mobile Devices, IPAD's, and Smart Phones. For local businesses, this means people in the towns you service can find you faster and easier, whether they are searching from a PC, laptop, tablet, smart phone, or other mobile device.
Local Search is Where it's At
According to a 2012 Pew Internet study, 40% of smart phones and mobile device searches are for local businesses. 78% are looking for a product or service they are thinking of purchasing. 61% of searchers consider local search results to be more relevant. And, 58% consider local search results to be more trustworthy.
A small monthly fee eliminates the trash - $25 for a text listing, and $35 for a business card display. In other words, only those businesses who legitimately belong are allowed. Each listing is hand-edited. These "barriers to entry" allow for a high-quality search engine that benefits both consumers and business owners. There are no directory websites or other "additional click" links on Joomple. Searchers get what they are looking for on the first page. If someone is searching for a plumber in Houston, Texas, a list of plumbers is what he or she gets! Searching for an HVAC contractor? What about a Italian restaurant? Or a Lawyer? All popular local search categories are represented!
Never Fear Algorithm Updates Again!
You've heard of them... algorithm updates by search engines. Updates that send your once high-ranking website listing to page two, three, or lower. All your marketing efforts (and funds spent) are now wiped away. If a chance algorithm update reduces your rankings for searches related to your business, having some presence in other channels can help offset the impact for your business. Joomple results are hand-entered and delivered on a single page. Moreover, a website owner or business can purchase top-page listings - we do not use search bots or algorithms. The good news is you never have to worry about your business listing falling off the front page in the event of an algorithm update.
Forget About SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
With Joomple, there are no confusing pay-per-click programs, no need to create local map accounts, study keywords, bet on positioning, etc. Quit worrying about who is positioned where, how much click-thru's cost, budget restrictions, ad-runs, etc. Moreover, stop hiring online marketing firms.
And, don't worry about having to write more website content than your competitors. It's true that your website should be informative. But, it should also be basic. You want your website visitors to get excited about your product or service and take action (call, visit, etc.), not become bored from information overload. Search engine optimization is the driving force behind website information overload (we all know that the more rich textual content on our website, the better is should place in the search engines, right?) With Joomple, you don't need to have page after page of content on your website, in an attempt to impress upon search engines. You just need a website!
Unlike pay-per-click, where rates are vague and fluctuate from a few cents to several dollars per click, with Joomple you simply pay one low rate for consistent top-page results. Stop throwing money at the problem, and start budgeting with a solution!

No Damaging Reviews
While user reviews are helpful for those considering using your product or services, it only takes 1 negative review to damage your reputation and send potential clients running. There is always at least one person you (or anyone else) can't satisfy! There are no options for reviewing businesses on Joomple, so you don't have to worry about negative reviews.
No Physical Address Required
Unlike other search engines, you do not need a business address to have a listing on Joomple. This can be helpful is you're a locksmith, for example, where you home is your business.
