      There is only one local "directory" to go for, and
      that's google maps. You must use a real
      name, real phone, real email, etc.

      Now google does glean stuff from yelp, yellow pages, etc.,
      but there's no reason to use a fake name, as all real
      details of the business must be real. In effect, you
      can't hide anyway.

      I would not use anything fake for a real local
      directory I care about. Usernames and passwords
      are different, of course. However, I would not
      waste time on anything but google maps and
      the local phone book.


      If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

    You can use your nickname instead of your real name.

    I use to hide my real name and then I started thinking on a bigger scale. If I want to grow my business to a whole new level, there's no real use in hiding who your are.

    Not a problem, you can use your real name as well, this way you would sound more natural and honest to the internet community and we should use real name.

    Some times, we find that our name is already taken, in this case I make some minor changes in the name.
