Yext and Nextdoor Team Up to Deliver Verified Information about Businesses
With Nextdoor joining the Yext Knowledge Network, businesses can publish facts directly to their Nextdoor Business Page from Yext.
NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud company, and Nextdoor, the world's largest private network for neighborhoods, today announced a global integration allowing businesses using Yext to publish facts about them to their Nextdoor Business Pages. The integration gives businesses confidence that consumers searching for them on Nextdoor will get an accurate, brand verified answer.
With this new relationship, people in the neighborhood can find facts like business locations, contact information, hours of operation, and more, straight from the business itself on their Nextdoor Business Page.
"Yext's integration with Nextdoor powers millions of facts about businesses in neighborhoods around the world. People ask questions about businesses every day, whether it's the address of the store three blocks away or the hours of the restaurant around the corner," said Marc Ferrentino, Chief Strategy Officer of Yext. "Today, we're making it easy for businesses to deliver the facts about them to nearby consumers with brand verified answers."
"Local businesses are at the heart of our neighborhoods, and, at Nextdoor, we strive to help them connect with neighbors who ultimately become loyal, lifelong patrons," said Tatyana Mamut, Nextdoor's Head of Product. "Now, with this strategic partnership with Yext, neighbors can be confident that they are getting accurate and consistent information about their beloved local businesses. This partnership is yet another way for local businesses to get in front of the customers closest to them: their neighbors."
Yext Listings customers will find Nextdoor in the Yext Knowledge Network, and their facts will sync automatically from their Knowledge Graph to their Business Page listings on Nextdoor.
