Update May 2010: Bing have now confirmed their procedure for adding your UK listing to bing. Please visit our latest post about Bing UK Local Listings here.
When I first posted how to setup a Bing local listing, we had a ton of feedback from our UK readers who pointed out that the Bing local listing center was only accepting US based businesses.
While UK listings were showing in search results, this was sourced from other data providers and it didn’t appear there was any way to get your information included.
Well, thanks to one of our loyal readers, now it appears you can! Daniel pointed out that Microsoft gets UK local business listings from a company called Market Location.
Here’s a screenshot from multimap.com (owned by Bing) on how to get your business listed:
Just to confirm, you simply need to visit http://www.marketlocation.com/changereq/ and add your details!
There’s been a bit of discussion on the issue over at the Bing community forums, and some readers have confirmed the inclusion of previously unlisted businesses by using the form above.
So if you’ve got a UK business, add your details with the form above and leave a comment if you get included!
