Listing Distribution

Listing Distribution submits business listings to the four major data providers.

As the name suggests, data providers are entities that gather consumer and business data. Hundreds of listing directories, review sites, search engines and more trust their data, and will pull business information from these four authorities.

The data providers also power sophisticated modern applications such as Apple’s Siri and personal navigation systems.

In North America, four major providers offer this data:

  • Foursquare
  • Infogroup
  • Neustar/Localeze
  • Factual

Over 300 online listing sources gather business listing data from these four providers. Our Listing Distribution product submits listings to all four of these data providers, which gets you the maximum exposure and impact for your business.


Listing Distribution is designed for single location businesses, as well as multi-location brands and franchises that list and market their physical business location online.

*Please note that while Factual highly considers our data, we cannot guarantee that data pushed to Factual will be accepted, especially if there are many sources with different information than ours. Due to this, Factual is a ‘submission only’ source where we will be submitting the information to Factual, but will no longer be monitoring it the same as the other data providers.
