A “Citation” is any reference, on the internet, about your business. Having excellent local citations – that are accurate – is a must for your business success. Any errors in your online listings can cause problems and confuse the search engines – which can really hurt your site ranking.
We craft the citations manually for your local business, social media and niche directories to ensure that each has uniform Name, Address, Phone – also known as NAP – to help your business with local ranking.
“Why should we hire an SEO company to do this work for us ???”
Few, if any, business owners have the kind of time needed to build and maintain their online presence. They are busy doing the job of running their businesses.
It makes economic sense to hire someone who is highly knowledgeable and thoroughly trained, to optimize your business listings – the listings that bring people to your website to buy your products or services.
Why hire us?
We understand that it can feel intimidating to find just the right people to do the work you need… especially when you’re not really certain exactly WHAT you need. We truly care about our clients and their success. After all, your success is also our success. We will clearly lay out the process and the steps we take to get the results you need.
How your business will benefit from hiring our services:
1. Increase in Local Search Traffic
Cleaning up your local citations will serve to improve your online presence and increase your search rankings locally. When Google, Yahoo and Bing are clear about who you are, it’s easy for them to pull your site up in the SERPs.
- Online Exposure and Directory Traffic
Having your business listed in local business directories is of great value to you. Local Directories appear regularly in search results and, if you do not want to spend a great deal of money on SEO, your business is far more likely to be found by the search engines in local searches. Sites like Yelp, Bing Places, Angie’s List, YellowPages and CitySearch are good, premium directories that show up in local search.

Making certain that your business NAP is correct across the internet helps to improve the authority of your website, increase the trustworthiness and, in the long run, deliver much higher ranking.

The process we use for Building Your Citations
We Analyze Your Information
Our team will check all of the provided information for its accuracy and completeness. We stay in touch with our clients and verify and sort out any discrepancies between the provided information and what is showing up online. It’s our job to make sure that ALL of the information – online – about your business, is accurate and complete, thereby improving your business’ local ranking.
We Check for any Existing Citations
To begin with, we locate any and all citations that may be in existence for your business. We then go through all of the citations we gather to verify the veracity of the data we collect.
We Create a List of Local Citations
Once we’ve collected the existing citations for your business, we begin preparation of a new list of only the best citation listing sites that will enhance the online presence of your business. We go down the list, checking to see if your business is listed and, if it is, we make sure that the information is correct and complete. If your business is NOT listed, the citation site is added to the next phase of the process.
We Build Your Business Citations
Our teams add your business information to the selected citation sites – by hand – to ensure the completeness and accuracy of all data added. Some sites will only take NAP, and others will allow additional information such as web address, photos and videos. All of these factors add to your online presence and authority.
We send a report to you
Once the process has been completed, you will receive a detailed report listing the domain addresses of the created listings, including the status of each (approved, pending, already exists), and the UserName and PassWord login details for each, plus any comments.
