Explain Featured and Updated
Featured Listings may be rotated on various pages of BizLocal.com, including the home page. Additionally, Featured Listings have a prominent indication of their Featured Status among all listings on a search results page, quickly drawing the eye of a visitor to YOUR listing!
Updated Listings are those which have been modified by YOU, refreshing and updating the information. Potential buyers will often look for recently updated listings, to insure the listing is fresh, new, active or maybe has had a price change.
a.) By default, most newest creation date or updated date listings are displayed FIRST when using our search system. So, you want to be displayed in the top of the list, right?
b.) Featured 6 Month Packages will carry the Featured designation in search results, as well as have their Last Updated date auto-updated once a week, to keep you at the top of the stack!
Of course, you can update your listing at any time, providing more current data and pricing, which will update to the top!
