More About IWantInsurance.com
The website offers many opportunities for consumers to find your agency. The first is through the search box. A visitor selects his or her line of business and enters his or her postal code. The website then displays the agencies closest to the visitor. In areas with more than one agency, we randomize the list so everyone receives equal placement within the results.
Once the visitor is on your agency's profile page, he or she can see details about your agency. These details can include lines of business offered, locations, employees, blog entries and reviews. We pull this information from your insurance agency website's administration console. All links from your listing will go to your website providing you valuable backlinks.
As recommended by our SEO experts, each website page has embedded microdata for optimal ranking performance.
Finally, your agency gets its own badge recognizing your profile's ranking within the website.
