Did you know that the #1 problem with local campaigns is inconsistent citations?
After reviewing 1000’s of Local SEO Campaigns, we’ve seen it time and time again: The biggest factor that holds you back from getting awesome results in local is having incorrect or inconsistent citations. This is the #3 negative ranking factor according to David Mihms (SEOMoz) most recent ranking factors survey
How do "bad listings" happen?
This can result in big problems and paralyzed rankings. Each citation you have is a “vote” for you to rank higher. If these votes are going to different NAP combinations, there’s no way you can collect the juice you need to rank higher
These need to be fixed, and we are going to do it for you!
What We Do
Do you know what your local citations look like?
Fixing these issues isn’t an easy ordeal. Every citation source is different and as a result, a lot of manual labor is required to contact each site to correct the information.
This is why we put together our Local Citation Cleanup Service, where you can just push a button, and our team of trained experts will:
How It Works
Full Citation Audit
Every order starts with a complete audit of existing citations. We don’t just fix a set list of sites, we actually look at your entire profile and determine every single incorrect citation out there and document it.
Manual Outreach & Contact
ince every citation source is different, we created an internal Standard Operating Procedure for each site so we know the best protocol for getting your citations corrected. Some listings require manual contact via email, so we set up an email on your behalf and document all communications.

All of the hard work is done! We’ll deliver a full report detailing all of the work done, including logins to all the different directories.
Important Note About Citation Cleanup
During this campaign, 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!
Frequently Asked Questions
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 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.
Will you add pictures / change around my existing profiles?
It’s hard to guarantee acceptance with this type of campaign as it’s 100% manual.
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 transparent reporting.
