Citation Building Service FAQs

What is citation building?

Citation building involves creating and managing online listings across various directories, review sites, and online platforms to ensure consistent business information.

These listings include vital details like business name, address, phone number (NAP), website URL, and may include additional information such as operating hours and customer reviews.

The main goal of a citation building service is to establish a reliable and consistent online presence, enhancing local search rankings, visibility, and attracting potential customers.

It is a crucial element of local SEO strategies, as search engines rely on these citations to authenticate and confirm a business's legitimacy and relevance in specific geographic areas.

Do you check the data aggregators?

Yes, we visit Acxiom, Neustar Localeze, Infogroup, Factual and even Foursquare!

Do you fix all citations?

We’re typically able to fix 70-90% or more local citations. With that said, we don’t own or control these sites so there are times when we can’t guarantee they will be fixed. The sites we can't fix are usually low-tier and have little impact on rankings.

Am I paying per business or location?

You are paying per location, or per NAP (Name, Address, and Phone number).

How do you get around doing phone confirmations?

Some sites require phone verifications, but most do not. If a site requires phone verification it will be noted in our reporting.

What's included in the Citation audit?

We catalog correct and incorrect citations, avoiding any duplication of efforts. This results in a fully detailed report, including a road map on how to repair incorrect citations most effectively. We check for All NAP Variations, Existing Correct Citations, Incorrect Citations and Aggregator Citations.

An Important Note About Citation Cleanup

During our Local Business Listings & Citation Building Service, we will impersonate the your brand. We’ve tested many outreach templates and we’ve found the best performing template comes from the angle of “working for the company” which is why we do it this way. You may receive additional calls or emails from data aggregators or directories for verification, so it’s important to be on the lookout!
