Launch of new BBB website coming soon
The BBB system will soon be inaugurating a new website with an updated, design. BBB representatives from across the country have worked for over a year on its creation, and our BBB has participated in the process. Currently, the website’s functionality is being tested by a few BBBs of various sizes in different locations throughout the country, and the Council of Better Business Bureaus’ (CBBB) IT department is working out any problems that arise before the website is launched nationally, hopefully in January 2014.
- The new, powerful search function will allow customers and potential customers to find local information first, and provides a path to each BBB’s Accredited Businesses Directory.
- The site helps customers identify scams and find businesses they can trust, so they’re less likely to patronize untrustworthy or scam companies and instead support ethical businesses like yours.
- BBB’s related websites are also featured to make it easier for users to move around within the system, without leaving the site (e.g., Scam Stopper, Smart Investing, etc.).
- The consistent domain name construct will boost search engine optimization (SEO) scores and domain authority scores. This will help Accredited Businesses that use the dynamic seal on their own websites.
