Local Business Listings & Citation Building Service

Local business directory listings & citations are the bread and butter of local SEO. This is not just a standard list of directories. With our careful, manual submissions, we make sure you are in the best local business directories for your niche and market.

We leverage a 3 strategy process for determining which directories to submit to:

  • Strategy 1: We run an audit and review the most popular, traffic dense, authority directories to submit your business information to.
  • Strategy 2: We take your specific keywords and find out what citations are important not only in your industry but to your specific result pages in search.
  • Strategy 3: We scrape competitor review directories to find Google trusted directories.

We claim all the most important local business directories when possible, and provide detailed instructions for all others that should be verified by you (some require a phone call for verification or other methods).
