My metro area isn’t included on Houzz. Will my profile be lost in a miscellaneous listing?

    Will you be adding Jacksonville, Florida to your metro areas?

    Will I appear if I'm not in a USA metro area? I'm from Costa Rica and would like to be contacted by people on my country and everywhere else.
  • Emily H
    Hi anamargarita, You should still appear in search if someone is looking for a professional in Costa Rica. Hope that helps!
  • anamargarita
    Thanks! I have another question: Can I upload my fotos with a watermark of my logo to avoid copycats?
  • Emily H
    I do see photos with watermarks from time to time. One thing to remember is that for photos to be featured on Houzz, they need to be large and of high quality. If the watermark interferes with the quality of the photograph, it could also reduce the chances of it being featured on Houzz.

    Anywhere your photo that you upload is featured on the site, it will always link back to your profile.

    Will you be adding Fairfield County?

    Thank you!

    Hi there,

    Currently our metro areas are fairly broad, so your best bet would be to pick the closest one to you for now. (Bridgeport?)

    As we reach a critical mass of professionals and users in new areas, we are adding new official metro areas. To help speed things along in Greenwich, be sure to tell your colleagues and friends about Houzz so that the area reaches that critical mass more quickly. Hope that helps!

    Is the 'Wilmington" metro area for Wilmington, NC or Wilmington, DE?
  • Emily H
    Hi Christine, It's Wilmington, NC. Hope that helps!

    Perhaps the New Jersey coastal area can be added as a region. We are currently listed under New York Metro, but the Jersey coast is really a separate identity.

    Please add San Antonio, TX... it's the 7th largest city in the US and is not on your list!
  • Emily H
    Hi there, Houzz is adding new metros as they reach a critical mass of professionals and content in their area. You can help San Antonio get closer by letting your local colleagues and friends know about Houzz as well. Thank you for your patience! We would like to cover everywhere too!

    The closest I can find is Providence, RI - Why not Hartford, CT? One would think that at the very least the major cities of our Nation would be included... :)

    I'm not a professional but I'm an American living in Normandy, France. (There are quite a few Americans and other English speaking people living in France.) I wish you would add France soon. :)

    Will you be adding international or Perth soon? We are based in Perth, Western Australia, but our services are online and international and we would like anyone to be able to find us!
  • Keerthi Naidu
    Hi Siobhan, we are working hard to get more design professionals in Perth to join Houzz so we can open Perth as a new metro area. I just sent you an email, looking forward to speaking with you.

    What do you think about doing your project in Western Europe (Ukraine, Russia etc.)? I am a publisher of Interior magazine. Unfortunately, we haven’t such an excellent online platform for home remodeling here.
  • Emily H
    Hi Bohdan, You can absolutely upload your work to Houzz.
  • Bohdan Plikhivskyy
    I think there may be some problems. I do not think that many of our architects and home owners actively use foreign sites. I mean a full representation of your excellent online platform in local language.

    Please enter Hartford, CT as a metro location. New York and/or Boston and/or Bridgeport do not quite fit the bill.

    Thank you.

    Hi everyone, we now work simply by letting people search for any geography or zip - and by default show them businesses in their local area, so the opening of metros is not as relevant - we now cover the entire country and more. So if someone in your area goes to the professionals directory, if they are in your area we automatically show them the businesses nearby - regardless of whether they are attached to a specific metro. So smaller towns and cities are covered and people are seeing local businesses unless they specifically search in a different location.

    All images posted to Houzz are searchable by any user and in any area around the world. In general, high-quality, professionally-photographed images get more exposure, as they tend to be added to more ideabooks, and the Houzz algorithm recognizes them as more popular. Adding keywords to your photos will help your exposure.

    There is lots of educational material available here to help you optimize your profile:

    Please add Helena, Montana to the metro areas. It is the capital of Montana. Or if not Helena, then at least add "Montana"... we're a real up and coming design hub. :-)

    I noticed that when you search for professionals in the whitby area our name does not appear can you tell us how we can be added to the whitby professionals for Kitchen and Bathroom renovations

    I am a proud rural resident, don't consider myself as having a "metro area," and don't especially want one. I notice you keep pushing Hot Springs Village, Arkansas ads on my Houzz pages even though that town is 150 miles away. I haven't been that way in years and have no plans to visit or shop there. Furthermore, it is only a small gated-community "census-designated place" of about 12,000 spanning two counties, hardly a "metro area." How can I remove all these distracting ads, suggestions, Pros, projects, etc. pertaining to this distant town from the Houzz pages?

    We're currently listed on Houzz ( http://www.houzz.com/pro/windycityjohn/__public) in the "Chicago Metro" area for searches.

    Approx. 6 months ago we opened a satellite location in S.W. Michigan (Lawrence) which has now become established so we want to have it listed on Houzz. It looks like it would be covered under the "Grand Rapids Metro" area which is a bit further away. What other areas would be closer to us in S.W. MI (St. Joseph, Stevensville, South Haven, etc.)?

    Main question is, how do we do it? Do we have to start a separate listing all over again or can we simply incorporate our MI location on our existing "page" and also utilize the MI search parameters?

    Please get back to us by email or phone.

    Thank You!
