Please Read Prior To Submitting A Site

If you have one location DO NOT SUBMIT your site to this category. Please take a minute to identify the most appropriate locality and submit your site there. This is a Regional category and listings are made by location. Your location(s) should be shown, preferably by address and/or local phone number on your site.

To be listed at state level an entity must have at least one location in two or more Regions contained within the state. Entities with multiple locations in a single region should be suggested to that Regional level. Entities with multiple locations in a single county should submit to that County level. Entities with a single location should be submitted to the appropriate Locality level.

Tips for faster listings:

Submissions:

  1. Sites should be submitted to the appropriate level (Locality, County, Metro Area, Region, or State) and should display information indicating actual location such as local address and phone number with area code.
  2. Sites should be submitted to the single, most appropriate sub-category at that level.
  3. Only submit once. Multiple submissions will result in longer delays in review and all duplications will be deleted. Multiple listings are not accepted.
  4. Provide Primary Root URL only. Do not suggest redirect, cloaked, vanity URL''s or deeplinks. Only the true URL will be accepted.

Titles:

  1. Should be the actual name of your organization, company, business or club. Avoid using terms such as The, Our, Homepage or Website.
  2. Do not type in UPPERCASE
  3. Avoid unnecessary reiteration of the Category Header in title.

Descriptions:

  1. Write brief, clear and concise descriptions. Good descriptions describe the company or organization and include services and features the website provides.
  2. Do not use hype to describe your site. Descriptions should be objective and not read like an advertisement.
  3. Do not use repetitive words or reiteration of the category heading and title. Repeating words in a description (key- wording) is a form of hype and is not acceptable. Repetition of the category header is not used in the description.
  4. Avoid unnecessary abbreviations. The "&" should never be used, abbreviations such as MD, CPA, Inc, LLC or DDS are acceptable if applicable.

Submitters are strongly encouraged to read and follow the Site Suggestion Instructions and the Regional Listing Guidelines. Submissions to inappropriate categories, multiple submissions of the same site or related sites, and submissions to multiple categories will only delay the review times.
