The Benefits of Building Citations
Does your business have a physical location? Leverage the power of your location,
increase your findability, and get more in store customers.
Create Authority and Relevance
Citations Citations are a key component in creating authority and building a strong foundation for your local search presence. Experts agree that citations impact local search rankings. They are considered to be table stakes, such that you need a baseline of citations to be able to rank. Getting listed on the top sites and on hyper-local and industry-specific citations is one of the first steps in establishing your local visibility.

How We Build Citations
Building citations for local SEO is a time-consuming process. Years of experience have taught us the tricks of the trade. We follow a careful process with each citation building project.
Review the supplied information
We always check if the provided information is accurate and complete. If we find any inconsistencies between the information you supplied and what’s online, we’ll get in touch to sort it out. We ask for as many details as possible, because complete and comprehensive listings will improve your local rankings.
Check for existing citations
First, we identify your existing citations with the Local Citation Finder. Then — as we’re building citations — we check each site individually to ensure we never create duplicate listings, and to look for any NAP inconsistencies.
Create a local citations list
After we get a list of your existing citations, we prepare a list of new citation opportunities using our huge database of business listing sites. We start with the highest quality sources and work our way down the list. If you already have a listing in a high priority source, we will check if it is up-to-date and if it is not, we will update it in the “Build Citations!” phase.
We list your business on the citation sources BY HAND and we make sure to include as much information as possible. The more complete and comprehensive the citations are, the more they benefit your local rankings.
Send you a report
Once we have completed the job, we’ll send you a detailed report with a list of URLs to all of the listings we created, the status of each listing (approved, pending, already existed), usernames and passwords for the sites, and any comments. This report is unbranded so SEO agencies can simply pass them on to their clients without modifications. Your work will be completed and you’ll have your report
within four weeks of placing your order. (Please note: due to overwhelming demand, we are currently delivering projects within 6 to 8 weeks.)
NAP Changes? No problem, we can update your citations
In the future, if your business moves, gets a new phone number, changes it’s name, or any business data changes, we can help you refresh the citations we built. Businesses are dynamic, and it’s important that your business information is too. For a one time fee of $2 per citation we can refresh any previous citation building order. Contact our support team to order a refresh or if you have any questions about it.
