FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I list my local business on Dayboro.com?

Creating a Dayboro.com listing is the best 5 minutes a local business can possibly spend on advertising. Businesses routinely spend thousands of dollars on SEO and Google Ads to be found by locals searching for their service.

With Dayboro.com your listing it is soon indexed by Google enabling your business to be easily found (often on the first page) on Google when people search for “Dayboro <Your Service>”. For example “Dayboro Welding”, “Dayboro Fencing” and “Dayboro Plumber” bring your business on the first page of results or at least takes the person to a list of all those services in Dayboro.

Obviously when advertising your business you want as much exposure on as many platforms as possible. Dayboro.com is just one of those essential platforms because it’s free and receives thousands of visitors per month.

My business or event was listed but it’s owned by the admin. Why? Can I claim it as mine?

Business and event listings on Dayboro.com are either created manually by ‘admin’ or submitted by users. In order for Dayboro.com to be as useful as possible we want it to be as comprehensive and up to date as it can be.

Subsequently we have gone ahead added many listings manually. This has been laborious work but resulted in hundreds of businesses being advertised for free without the business owners needing to do a thing. We are yet to encounter a business owner that is unhappy about this. If any information is incorrect we promptly correct it on request. Further, if you find your business listing we created, you are able to take ownership of the listing and edit it however you like. To do this sign up and click the Claim Ownership button on the listing.

Of course we can’t create and maintain all listings on our own so we depend on locals submitting and updating their own details. Listing Ownership is currently increasing as people realise the advantage of being on Dayboro.com.
