UniversalBusinessListing.org Announces New Verification Process to Ensure Search Results’ Credibility

UniversalBusinessListing.org is a site that provides home-based and micro businesses with the service of having their business profiles distributed to major search outlets, social networks, directory assistance, navigation services, and online yellow pages. Name Dynamics, the parent company of UBL, knows the difficulties that business owners can face when it comes to making their online presence known, including competing with fraudulent listings. To help combat these fake profiles appearing in online searches, UBL has announced the launch of a new verification process that will help “increase visibility and credibility” and “improve confidence in valid business profiles” among home-based and micro business.

Name Dynamics’ CEO Doyal Bryant says, “many legitimate businesses are not being found in traditional online directories, because the very definition of what is a legal business has not caught up with technologies, like mobile phones and the Internet, that help a small service or home-based business operate.” With the new verification process will also come checks for closed businesses, government filings, and, in some cases, proof of identity directly from the business itself. All these steps are being taken to insure the utmost level of security and accuracy when it comes to business listings, for not only the peace of mind of the business owners themselves, but for potential customers.

A “Verified Business” symbol will accompany each business profile that has undergone the process to make consumers aware of the steps taken by UniversalBusinessListings.

  1. A bit unclear….so UBL will be calling themselves to verify (like infoUSA) or you have to go in to verify, or….

    I just logged in and don't see anything re verification for my listings.

  2. We have to work on that communication! We use an expert identity management group that does this kind of work for banks and credit facilities. Most of it is automated – but for the 5% that cannot be done that way via the premium databases, we will connect to request basic business documentation, just like a Better Business Bureau might. All new premium listings will have this and receive their Verified Business badge. If any existing listing company wants this, they can request it from us directly.
