Basic Listing Features
Listing owners can provide details to help other members of our community make better-informed decisions.
The items highlighted in the features table shown in the next tab represent the Basic Listing Plan that are available for all Listings.
# of Listings
One (1) stand-alone listing, meaning the listing will not be linked to any other listing. MetroPops retains the right to approve/deny all listings submitted for consideration. This listing can be any listing type: Event, Food & Drink, Shopping, Lifestyle, or Points of Interest.
Pro-Tip: Have multiple listings? Upgrade to Advanced Package or higher to link multiple listings together with the “Related Listings” tab and enjoy other ADVANCED features.
Claim Your Listing
All listings are easily searchable with our platform’s Advanced Search & Filtering features. We encourage Listing owners to fill out their Listings as completely as possible, in order to have the best chance of being discovered.
EVERY listing comes with the ability for a merchant, organization, and/or an individual to Claim their listing(s). Once claimed, listings will be granted “verified” status next to the business name on our platform and will have a badge displayed so everyone will know that these listings were verified by the actual owner.
We want to make sure that we provide the most complete City Guide and information to our consumers, and it is in the best interest of business owners and organizations to make sure the information presented is accurate, complete, and presented the way YOU want it to be.
Simply look for the Claim icon located just under the top header photos within the listing itself.
Once your claim has been verified, your listing will then appear with a Verified Check Mark on our site, and it will be tagged “verified” with all the other listings that have done the same.
Once you create an account on MetroPops and Create and/or Claim your listing(s), you’ll have access to a unique dashboard displaying analytics and much more.
From your account dashboard, you can easily view valuable information about your overall Listing footprint on our platform. You also have the ability to filter by a particular Listing and by a specific date range.
The analytics are laid out in a clean, simple fashion, that’s easy to understand.
- Listing Views (Unique): The first time a unique visitor views your Listing, the uniqueness is determined by their IP address.
- Listing Views: If a unique visitor ever looks at your Listing again, this counts as a ‘view’.
- Published Listings: This is how many ‘active’ Listing you currently have on our platform.
- Pending Listings: This is how many Listings are waiting to be approved by our team.
- Active Promotions: This is how many of your Listings have been promoted.
