For businesses which have a website

A Featured Business Page (FBP) provides businesses with a website with valuable additional online presence

This is an excellent method of improving individual business search engine optimisation.

  • links directly to your website, providing a trusted backlink
  • includes compelling content about your business, providing an additional source of trusted copy, keywords, images and additional backlinks to specific pages on your website
  • the copy in the business description can be tailored to the local New Forest area, highlighting relevant propositions that often is not possible on a national or bookings-led website
  • enables valuable links to your social media accounts
  • can provide backlinks to videos on your YouTube channel
  • provides an opportunity for online reviews that can be managed by the LDC team

For businesses without a website

A Featured Business Page provides businesses without a website with their own one-page ‘website’

This is a highly cost-effective means of owning a web-presence if your business doesn't have its own website, has an outdated or non-responsive website, or is part of a chain which limits local information on the main website.

  • provides you with a website URL that you can use across your digital platform and to which you can divert your own domain name if desired
  • includes compelling content about your business, providing a source of trusted copy, keywords and images
  • enables valuable links to your social media accounts
  • can provide backlinks to videos on your YouTube channel
  • provides an opportunity for online reviews that can be managed by the LDC team

Your Featured Business Page will display in as many categories you wish which are relevant, in the Lymington.com directory of local businesses and organisations. 

Once you have set it up, you will be able to log in and update it yourself at any time.

The short description and meta data will help to display your page for relevant searches, not only within the Lymington.com website itself but also from Google search.

The long description can be as long as you like including a succinct and compelling summary of your business: what it offers, to whom and why it’s so good - including multiple links to various pages on your own website if you wish together with customer testimonials and where relevant our third party endorsement too.  It can also include images to illustrate the text.

The key thing is to make your headline messages as compelling as possible to your target markets.

The page can include an image gallery and links to your own website and social media along with as relevant location map, videos, even a 360 degree virtual tour embedded into the page. 

Google likes our Directory a lot (link to stats and dems) and simply having a webpage on Lymington.com has value in itself. Google also regularly features our news items and events in Google Alerts and Google Search.

We can tailor your webpage to showcase the exact elements of your business that you would like to promote to the local market. In other words, we can help 'tell your story' and explain exactly why people should come to you!
