    Is it worthwhile to pay for "premium listings" from Search engines?


    I keep getting offers from Yext, Manta, Yahoo, Bing, Yelp, foursquare e.t.c asking me to sign up for a monthly package to showcase my site locally, but is this worthwhile and if yes, how does one know which is the best one please?

    In my experience the cost is often greater than the return.
    Good SERPS is great, Traffic however is even better
