Local SEO is the process of improving your website’s visibility in search engines for location-based searches.
For example, if someone types into Google: “local plumber Jacksonville fl,” local plumbers in Jacksonville, Florida (who have good online marketing) will be the first to pop-up – and they’re the ones who get all the business.
We specialize in strategic citations and local optimizations that help companies increase their sales, revenue, and local market share by making them more visible online.
Whether you want more foot traffic to your brick-and-mortar store, more phone calls, or more leads in general, our local directory listing service can help you reach the customers who are already looking online for services in your area.
When set up correctly, citations can be very easy to manage and can lead to improved local rankings. However, if done incorrectly, citations can confuse potential customers and be a nightmare to clean up … so let us handle it for you!
We audit directory listing/citations across all major online directories (think Better Business Bureau, CitySearch, Manta, Merchant Circle, Yelp, etc.) to establish whether or not your business is listed correctly and if it’s targeting the right customers.
After the audit, we roll up our sleeves and manually insert your business details (name, phone, email, website, etc.) into 60 or 90 diverse online platforms, all selected with your precise industry and customers in mind.
Once the work is complete, you’ll receive a spreadsheet showing the results from the initial audit, along with links and login info to all the citation sources we just created for your business.
A lot of marketing companies will make you believe you need to pay a monthly or yearly contract for “listings management services”. However, our services are a once-and-done solution to getting your website to rank higher in search.
The whole process takes about 10 business days to complete, and once finished…you’ll never have to worry about your online directory listings again (as long as your business name, phone number, website etc. stays the same).

Building citations is beneficial for Search Engine Optimization because it helps Google and Bing to trust the authenticity of your business and the accuracy of your information.
When Google can see that exactly the same information exists across a number of trusted websites, then this trust can be passed on to your business. Citation consistency is therefore particularly important for enjoying the maximum SEO benefit of local citations. This means that your business name, address, and phone number must be accurate across all of the websites on which your business is listed.
Although links are great, a local citation doesn’t need to link to your business website in order for it to have SEO advantages. Google will identify that your business has been mentioned through the presence of your citations data, and this is enough to influence “trust signals” towards your brand. With this, increased website rankings will follow.
Our Local Listing Management Services focus on optimizing your business listings on various online directories. This includes accurate information, keyword-rich descriptions, and regular updates to improve your local SEO.
Citations are an online reference to a business that features the business’ name, address, and phone number (NAP). Typically, when marketers refer to citations, they are talking about a group of individual business listings on various sites.
While the minimum amount of information required for most citations is just a name, address, and phone number, most websites offer many more opportunities to add additional information.
Well … you could … but think about the amount of time it would take you to create listings on 60+ websites, making sure all the information is accurate, and verify any emails you receive. And how do you know which websites are best suited to your industry? The vast majority of local citation/directory websites hold no value at all so creating a profile on them is a waste of your precious time. It could also be seen as spam and actually decrease your ranking, if not done correctly.
We offer a one-and-done solution that is guaranteed to add value and increase the visibility of your website/online service.
Verification & TrustCitations help search engines, like Google and Bing, verify that your business exists. When multiple credible sources have the same accurate information about your business, it tells the search engine “hey … this business must be credible … I’m going to rank them higher!”
Listing your business on the prominent national and local sites helps your business create authority, establish trust, and will improve your business’ ability to rank in local search results.
ProminenceLocal ranking algorithms used by both Google and Bing take into account citations when it comes to local search rankings. In the latest Local Search Ranking Factors survey, citation-related factors were listed as one of the top factors in ranking high in online searches.
Effective Local Listing Management helps your business appear in local searches, driving more foot traffic, phone calls, and overall leads. This is especially crucial for small to medium-sized businesses looking to dominate their local market.
We ensure that your business citations are consistent across all platforms and update them to the correct info. We also add your information directly to other citation sources.
Inaccurate listings can harm your local SEO. Our team will audit your current listings, correct inaccuracies, and ensure consistency across all platforms to boost your local search rankings.
The time it takes to see tangible results can vary based on your current local SEO standing and market competition. However, clients often notice an improvement in local search rankings within a few weeks.
