We have the only hardware store in our small town. If you search on clarksville va ace hardware, the listing for Ace hardware's main site comes right up, but ours is buried on page three. If you search on clarksville va hardware, we come up #6. We've signed up with google's local listings. Will it help to get onto all the directories that are coming up instead of us? Aside from them sending traffic to us, will being in them help our ranking?
How can we get more sites linking to us to improve our ranking?
