A local citation is any site online that displays the following details about your business; Name, Address, and Phone number. Or NAP for short.
Local citations provide multiple benefits for your business including:
- Help drive customers to your website. Many of the citations include popular sites like Merchant Circle, Manta, Yellow Pages, and many more. These directories have high rankings and often show up high in search results.
- The more accurate the NAP listings are, the more it will help your organic SEO results and the Google Local pack rankings. But for this to have an impact, your information must be consistent and accurate.
While there are many services that charge monthly or annually in order to keep your citations live, we only charge you once when we claim them. However, should you change your NAP, then there will be a charge to update all your listings.
We will submit your NAP information to the 4 main Data Aggregators;
- Neustar Localeze
The Data Aggregators will then push your information out to dozens of directories and citation websites. We combine both manual and Data Aggregator listings for the best possible results and the widest coverage.
The Data Aggregator listing are an annual service and require renewal each year.
Our reputation monitoring service monitors most of the biggest review sites for new reviews and alerts you to any new reviews posted. Please note that we will need the account credentials of most of the sites to access the reviews.
You will also be able to respond directly through our interface to reviews posted on many of the review sites. This is especially convenient when there are multiple sites that need responses.
We currently provide the most extensive support for customers located in the United State, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. But we also support customers in most countries on the main review sites like Google, Facebook, TripAdvisor, and Yelp.
Getting alerted when a review is left can be time critical if the review requires a response. The quicker your response time is, the more likely any issues will be successfully resolved and any damaging reviews are removed.
