Local Citation Analysis

Ranking towards the top of the Local 7 Pack or Carousel takes more than just claiming your Google, Yahoo and Bing map listings.  There are many different factors to ranking well, but one of the biggest and most important is generating citations to supplement your maps listing. 

Why Do I Need Citations?

A citation is a reference to your local business. This reference includes your business name, address, phone number, and any other pertinent information for your business. Many times, citations will also include links back to your website which fuels your link building efforts and creates higher rankings in the SERPs.

The nice thing about citations is the fact that even if it doesn't have a link back to your website, just the mention of your business, including exact matching information (address and phone number) will help you improve your local search marketing results. To put it simply, citations help you rank better for local search queries.

A citation analysis will produce hundreds of local citation sources per key phrase.  We'll also perform a competitive analysis of the top ranked businesses and their citations as well as compare searches to see which citation sources your competitors have that you don't.  Once we're done, you'll know exactly where to list your business for better search rankings.

Citation Building

Citations are a key factor in local search rankings, but we also understand that you may be too busy to build citations on your own. Building good citations for local SEO is a time consuming process and after years of experience, we know to follow a careful process with each citation building project.  We don't use automation to create these submissions, so by taking the time do perform the work manually, we can ensure greater accuracy and a superior listing for our customers.

Just as with links, NOT ALL CITATION SOURCES ARE CREATED EQUAL.  Some citations are going to help your rankings, while others could hurt your rankings. This is why it's so important that you're careful with where you submit.  Other citation submission companies are more than happy to offer several hundred sites for them to build your citations on.  Upwardly Mobile uses a 9 step checklist to insure that we are only creating listings on quality citation sources that will help and not hurt your rankings.

What We Do For You    

1.  Review the supplied information - We always check if the provided information is accurate and complete. If we find any variations between the information you supplied and what’s online, we’ll get in touch with you to sort it out. We ask for as many details as possible, because complete and comprehensive listings will always improve your local rankings.

2.  Check for existing citations- First, we identify your existing citations by performing a citation analysis.  Then, as we're building citations, we check each site individually to ensure we never create duplicate listings and look for any NAP inconsistencies.

3.  Create a local citations list - After we get a list of your existing citations, we prepare a list of new citation opportunities using our huge database of business listing sites. We start with the highest quality sources and work our way down the list. If you already have a listing in a high priority source, we'll check to see if it's up-to-date and if it is not, we'll update it.

4.  Build citations! - We list your business on the citation sources BY HAND and make sure to include as much information as possible. The more complete and comprehensive the citations are, the more they benefit your local rankings.

5.  Send you a report - Once we've completed the job, we'll send you a detailed report.  The report will include a list of URLs to all of the listings we created, the status of each listing (approved, pending, already existed), usernames and passwords for the sites, and any comments. Your work will be completed and you’ll have your report within three weeks of placing your order.
