So how do you claim your CitySearch listing? First create an account with CitySearch – you can use your Facebook account to log in but remember, your actions on one site will be “communicated” to the other site if you choose this option.
Then, find your business and click on the “claim this listing” link.
Once you’ve claimed your listing, you can add photos and manage your listing. If your business isn’t listed on CitySearch – then click here to add it.
CitySearch has “closed” registration for it’s free business listings before – and may do so again – so make claiming your listing on CitySearch a top priority. It truly may be “here today – gone tomorrow” and with it’s high visibility in the search engines – it’s a valuable place for your business to be.
