Why is my listing not approved?

Some of the common reasons why listings are not approved are given below. There could be other reason also.

Your business or service is not based in Goa:

1. This site is dedicated to business or service providers located in Goa only. You need to have a fixed business address in Goa. It should be marked on the geo location feature on your listing page. Otherwise your listing is not approved.

Your listing does not have a proper title:

1. Only listings with real name of business or person are approved (Example: “Hotel Ibiza” or “Dr. R. D’souza”). Listings with generic names like “hotels in Goa” or “bed sheets supplier in Goa” are not approved.

2. Listings with too much text in title or undesirable text in the title like address and or phone number and or too many keyword phrases are not approved.

Spam Listing

Listing created for the sole purpose of building back links are not approved. More than one outbound or external link within the description section is considered as spam listing.

Plagiarized Content

Content that is copy pasted from somewhere else is plagiarized and will not be published. Your content has to be unique and fresh. The system automatically checks for plagiarism and will transfer your listing to trash section.

Thin Content

A minimum of 300 words are required in the description section for search engines to index your listing on search pages. Anything less than 300 words is considered as thin content. Listings with thin content are not approved.
