What is a data provider?

Modified on Fri, 05 Feb 2016 at 09:34 AM

As the name suggests, data providers are entities who gather consumer and business data and provide it to hundreds of listing directories, review sites, search engines, and more. They also power sophisticated modern applications such as Apple’s Siri and personal navigation systems.

In North America, four major providers offer this data: Factual, Acxiom, Infogroup, and Neustar Localeze. Between them, they provide data to over 300 online listing sources. DirectFeed - Listing Distribution submits listings to all four of these data providers, providing maximum exposure and impact for your business.
