What are local search citations? A local citation is a mention of your business name, address and phone number on another website or local business directory.
Within the world of local SEO this combination of your business name, address and phone number are known as your NAP. When it comes to citations, the key to the success of any Local SEO campaign is NAP consistency. Prior to starting work on any Local SEO Campaign we audit the consistency of your existing citation listings and repair inconsistent listings where necessary. This is a vital step of ensuring that your campaign is successful. The citation audit cleanup takes time, it can be slow, frustrating and complicated meaning that many agencies skip this element of a campaign but not ensuring consistency could mean that all of your other local optimisation efforts are wasted.
Local Citation Building
Local directory listings and citations are the foundations of local SEO. We carefully select websites and directories that match your local area and your business market then manually build consistent NAP listings to promote your business in local rankings.
We focus on all tiers of directory listing sources: – Your Google My Business account belongs to you. We retain access to your account whilst working on your behalf but all work that we carry out is yours to take away with you at any point. 1st (seed) tier – These are websites such as Thompson Local and Yell.com.
