Why You Need To Manage Your Local Citation Listings
Local Citation (or Directory) Listings are a significant factor in your local business getting found online, and therefore make quite an impact on how much business you get. These are simply entries in directories you can find around the Web on sites like Yellow Pages, City Search, Urban Spoon, and of course, Google, Yelp, Apple Maps and Yahoo/Bing.
While most directories allow you to claim (or add) your business’ entry for free, it is a tedious, time-consuming, thankless task that others can do for you – quicker and better – so you can get back to running your business. We have connections to the primary services, called data aggregators, who connect with over 300 directories on the Web. Through this working relationship, we can ensure that your data is accurate and complete so that visitors can find you on the Web.
It doesn’t stop after the listings are claimed and/or updated. They also need to be continuously monitored because the same automated ‘bot’ software that the various services use to collect the original listings also can and do overwrite listings all the time, even those that have been claimed.
