This is not a standard list of local directories. Every campaign is different, and we leverage three strategies for determining which directories to submit to for that particular client.
Tactic 1: Ego directories – The most popular, traffic-dense, authority directories
Tactic 2: Competitor directories – We take your specific keywords and find out what quality citations are influential not only in your industry but your specific SERPs (search engine result pages).
Tactic 3: Competitor review directories – We scrape competitor review directories to find Google trusted guides.
We claim the most valuable directories where possible & deliver transparent reporting, including all login info.

What are Web Citations?
A web citation is a reference to a document or resource found on the World Wide Web. The most common type of web citation is a URL, which is the address of a specific website or web page. Web citations can also include references to other types of online resources, such as email messages, online chat sessions, images, and video clips. In general, a web citation should provide enough information for a reader to locate the original source material. When creating a web citation, it is important to use a reliable and well-established citation format, such as MLA or APA. By following proper citation guidelines, you can ensure that your web citations are both accurate and consistent.
What is an SEO citation?
When it comes to search engine optimization (SEO), citation is everything. A citation is simply an online mention of your business, usually on a directory or review site. The more citations you have, the higher you will rank in search engine results pages (SERPs). But it’s not just about quantity–quality is also important. Google looks for citations from high-quality websites when determining where to rank your site. So, how can you get started with building citations for your business? The first step is to identify which directories and review sites are most relevant to your industry. Then, create a profile for your business on each of these sites and make sure to include all of the key information that potential customers would be looking for, such as your name, address, phone number, and website URL. Finally, encourage customers to leave reviews on these sites–the more positive reviews you have, the better! By following these simple steps, you can start to build citations for your business and see a real improvement in your SEO.
