Now you have registered and claimed your Profile Pages, you’ll need to keep them up to date. To do this, go to your Profile Page and click on ‘Manage this page’ in the bottom right-hand corner to log in. Once you’ve logged in, this takes you to ‘Your Business Listing’ page, which is the home page of your Profile Pages. It displays the information already held about your business and also prompts you to add further information to help customers find you. Use the navigation on the left or the preview to add/edit your business Profile Pages information.
Step 5 – Describe your business
It’s very important that customers can easily establish who you are and what you do. Your Description will help you be found so remember to use words and phrases that potential customers will use when searching for a company like yours. All information in your Profile Pages will be used to match what you do with what customers are looking for on Yell.com and search engines.
Step 6 – Add a Headline
Many businesses use this section to highlight a special offer or promotion. You could use it to draw attention to a unique feature or something your business can be proud of like an award or accreditation. This is a key part of your Profile Pages that helps customers choose to contact you over your competitors.

Step 7 – List your Services & Products
This area allows you to list all the products and services you offer. We have tried to help by listing the terms used most often by customers when searching for your kind of business. So, if you offer any of those product or services listed then make sure you select them to give you the best chance of being found. It’s possible you will offer things that aren’t on this list – if so, add these too to indicate a product or service that is more niche. Adding this depth of rich information about your business in your Profile Pages will help Yell and search engines match your business offering with exactly what customers are looking for.
You can edit, re-order or delete the bullet points, just roll your mouse over them and click on the pencil/edit button or double-click on the text.

Step 10 – Add Photos
Images are another key component of your Yell.com Profile Pages. You can use photos to show examples of your product range, completed jobs, or your business premises. The photo gallery is a great way to showcase your business in a visual way, helping customers to decide to get in touch. You can also upload your company logo and select this to brand your business listing. Many businesses choose imagery from their website to deliver a consistent experience for customers clicking from their Yell.com listing to their company website.
