Grow Your Business With Local Search

Gain the competitive edge you need to stand out and get found in local search results. Our team of experts will manage key areas in local today that require consistent activity and attention, while also helping you build a stronger foundation.

Google My Business

Google is sending fewer visitors to websites than ever before. Rich snippets, answer boxes, and comprehensive Business Profiles often provide all the information users need without having to click through to a business website. Google is even facilitating bookings and transactions for many search queries!

This means that now more than ever businesses need to be performing “on-Google SEO”, businesses with the most information on their listings and frequent updates are ranking higher and reaping the rewards of more calls, bookings, and sales.

Optimization 
Our team will perfect your Business Profile. We ensure your listing is 100% accurate, has the best categories, all possible attributes, is linked to an optimized landing page, precise map pin location and more! We’ll also identify and remove any duplicate, unclaimed, or incorrect GMB listings.

Enhancement
We’ll manage all additional GMB features that are available to you, which helps make your listing stand out and gives you a competitive edge. We will monitor your Google Questions & Answers, and give them a boost through building out your top FAQs. We’ll setup, manage, and update your Products and Services features, and add photos regularly to keep your listing fresh and up to date.

Unique Content
Keep searchers engaged and up to date with unique content posted weekly to your Business Profile through Google Posts. From specials to product announcements to appointment bookings; our team will promote your company and keep the content interesting.

Citations

Citations play a critical role in establishing a strong foundation for local search. At Whitespark we firmly believe in the importance of citations, and frequently publish extensive industry leading research on this topic.

Citation Audit & Cleanup
First our team will complete a full analysis of your listings on the top most important sites in the local search ecosystem (this includes the data aggregators, core search engines, key sites, and some GEO/vertical directories). We will uncover all of your incorrect, duplicate,  and correct listings, and identify any missing citations. Then we will fix and enhance all listings, remove any harmful duplicates, and create listings on the sites that you’re missing.

Citation Building
Once your citation profile has been cleaned up and any incorrect data removed from the local search ecosystem, our team will build new citations for your business on both generic and industry/niche sites.
