What is Top501.com?
Top501.com is made up of 2 distinct sites.
• Top501sm.com (Top501 SM) is our Social Media hub
• Top501local.com (Top501 Local) is our location and category-based business hub.
You are currently viewing Top501Local. This is our Business Social Media hub. If you don’t have a physical business or product, perhaps you’re an influencer or perhaps you have some great social media accounts or blogs or vlogs that you would like to share and build, take a look at our sister site Top501 Social Media www.top501sm.com as that may be a better fit for you.
Why did you develop this site?
We wanted to create a place where businesses can come and advertise in their local city, borough or county for free. We don’t care how big or small your company is – we treat everyone in the same way.
Having your own page on Top501 removes the need for you to pay for expensive Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) on your own site, or to worry about Facebook or Instagram algorithms – all of our content is easy to find and explore by location and category. Your business can supply up to 9 links, including links to your website and any social media accounts that you own, and you can even advertise in multiple categories and locations.
We also want people to be able to find local businesses easily without relying on search engines. Visitors to our sites can browse through locations and categories that they are interested in without having to use a search engine to find content. Up to 501 entries on each category to explore and up to 9 links on each of these – that’s a lot of subject-related and relevant content to browse through and explore!
You can also use your Top501 page on Social Media Sites or Tripadvisor or on business cards to direct people to be able to see all your information in one easy to use place.
How does it work?
• Search through the categories to find the one that most relates to your business.
• Once you find the most suitable category pick any ‘Space Available’ areas on the page
• Fill in the form, add links to your social media accounts, website, blogs, vlogs, podcasts etc.
• Make sure you also include some great text – the ‘Title Text’ will show on the main Category page and the Description Text will show on your Top501 Page. When people use the Search facility, this text will be searched and if it matches with your text, your business will be included in the search results.
• Once we have checked that we have everything we need, we will publish your own Top501 page with your text, embedded map (if you would like to add one) and links to all your social media and websites all in one place. We can also include a photo for you.
• We will email you each step of the way so you know when your page is published.
• You can have your own Top501 page in multiple categories and locations.
