Why my Business Information may be rejected
Get Found helps you get your local business listed on top sites across the Web. However, these sites have restrictions on what type of business information they accept.
Every business that signs up for Get Found enters a quality review process. We review your information to ensure your business is accurate and meets our partner guidelines. Upon review, your business information may be reformatted to meet our publishing partner guidelines. Our goal is to ensure that the information you provide is of the highest quality, so that your business attracts the most customers.

A Get Found representative may contact you to correct any errors in your business information. It will not be published to our partner sites until all issues are corrected.
