With the popularity of the free Bronze Star listing, the review process can take some time. It is “Important” for a business to spend the time in the creation of their listing by passing the qualifications, following the recommendations and requirements mentioned on the sign up form. This will ensure the quickest approval time for their business listing to be published.
Why is my listing still pending? The most important steps when signing up for a business listing on City Top 10 is reading the Qualifications needed for approval as these guidelines must be met for listing consideration.
These “Important” steps are mandatory so it’s worth it to spend the time to carefully read the listing descriptions and to include all the required information on the sign up page. Our listing pages are designed to feature a minimum of 3 business photos in the gallery. Plus 1 featured image that will be shown on the listing cards throughout the website and when shared as a link. We suggest using images from a businesses social media profiles.
Failure to upload the required images needed to complete the listing will keep the listing in a pending state. A review of the images and information will determine if the business listing qualifies for approval.
The listing will remain in a pending state if the required images and information are not uploaded for review. The time limit to make the necessary edits while pending is 30 days then the listing and information will be deleted.
Mentioned in the sign up page is the suggested image sizing for the best viewing experience of the listing. We care about the quality and authenticity of the listings when viewed on our directory.
We understand that resizing and renaming your images can be a task but the benefits are best represented back towards your business. A good marketing tip is to rename your images to best describe the image or include your business name as your listing photos can be displayed on the internet.
