UBL communicates with its Agency Partners about UBL Direct improvements and its delivery to the imminent Apple Maps

22. June 2012

UBL communicated today with its Agency Partners about UBL Direct improvements and its delivery to the imminent Apple Maps.

Dear UBL Partner,

We are excited to advise you of some important product improvements at Universal Business Listing, and how they might impact our service to you. We recently announced the launch of the UBL Direct product feature which we are advising you today will replace the Quick Listings that were part of many of our product tiers. This is a significant improvement in our distribution on behalf of your clients.

UBL Direct will now deliver business profiles directly to over 20 key publishers (and growing) via API, FTP, and other methods, resulting in faster, more enhanced listing display. See the current list at https://www.ubl.org/Products/UBLDirect.aspx. As experts in the online world, you will appreciate that such direct technical connections are a logical evolution, and UBL expects the number of these sites and data providers to grow rapidly. The Quick Listing method, which was largely manual, will be retired.

This change will impact those of you who are displaying reporting data to your customers including links and publication confirmations, via our dashboard or reporting API.

To be clear, this is not a new product; it is a feature. As such, it will result in no immediate price change to you, but we urge you to review which product sets you are offering your customers. Many of our partners are still using our “Basic” package which does not have access to UBL Direct, nor does it take advantage of any of our claiming services which help you manage the transition of Google Places to Google+ Local, for example.

You may also be curious about the impact of the newly announced Apple Maps on our service. While this has not been released, UBL’s listings are included in the information of the primary data providers, so we are confident of inclusion. We will be watching the launch closely.

Finally, we want to advise you that the name of the parent company of UBL has been changed from Name Dynamics, Inc. to UBL Interactive, Inc. We believe this will save confusion as we continue to grow our organization around the strength of the UBL brand. All invoices will now come from UBL Interactive and you should advise your accounting departments of the change. Otherwise this will not affect your agreements with UBL.

We thank you again for your support and our team will be happy to answer any questions you have about our product developments.

Sincerely,   

The Support Team at UBL

Universal Business Listing Launches UBL Direct For Rapid Profile Updates On Key Search Engines And Directories

UBL service provides a direct connection to manage local search listings for businesses

Charlotte, NC (PR Newswire) June 5, 2012 – Universal Business Listing today introduced UBL Direct, a service which will rapidly update business profiles on dozens of important search engines and directories.

UBL Direct uses automated connections such as APIs (application programming interfaces) and other methods to deliver enhanced profiles directly from the businesses to publishers through an enhanced profile management dashboard. This speeds the publishing process.

UBL Direct is to be a feature of the existing listing syndication packages and replaces its Quick Listing manual service. The UBL Direct API is free to authorized publishers.

UBL has helped thousands of businesses take control of their online listings and secure a consistent, compelling presence across the landscape of local search. It is the leading service of its kind, operating in the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom. 

Users create rich and detailed business profiles including contact information, web address, social links, products and services, hours, credit cards, coupon and deal links, photos, logos, and more. 

UBL Direct is a complement to the current syndication to data feed providers which already reaches hundreds of search, social and mobile publishers. The new feed also expands UBL’s distribution to new data providers reaching hundreds of vertical directories and mobile applications. 

Citations on these sites increase the overall prominence of a business listing online, for local search optimization. UBL also offers optimized profile creation on sites like Google Places, Google + and Facebook, as well as detailed reporting on listing presence, visibility and now data from UBL Direct publishers.

Some of the Direct partners either currently active or about to go live include:
 
Local Corporation/Local.com

Showmelocal.com
Judy's Book

UBL’s President, Chris Travers, said this was an important evolution for UBL and gave a big advantage for businesses to manage their information cost-effectively. “Businesses and publishers understand the value of having accurate and current information reflected in the results. Direct API connections will go a long way to reducing the time and complexity of keeping business data accurate.”
