1. Full Citation Audit
The most important part of any Local SEO campaign is ensuring consistency, which is why every single YLocal campaign starts with a full audit.
Without this crucial step (that most cheap competitors skip), you’d be throwing money down the drain.
We put every campaign through this extremely detailed, time intensive process. We catalogue correct and incorrect citations, avoiding any duplication of efforts. This results in a fully detailed report, including a road map on how to repair incorrect citations most effectively.
2. Local Directory Citations
Local directory citations are the bread and butter of local. With our careful, manual submissions, we make sure you are in the BEST directories for your niche and market. This is not just a standard list of directories. Every single campaign is different and we leverage 3 strategies for determining which directories to submit to for that particular client.
Strategy 1: Ego directories – The most popular, traffic dense, authority directories.
Strategy 2: Competitor directories – We take your specific keywords and find out what citations are important not only in your industry but your specific SERPs.
Strategy 3: Competitor review directories – We scrape competitor review directories to find Google trusted directories.
We claim all the most important directories where possible, and provide detailed instructions for all others that should be verified by the client (some require a phone call for verification or other methods). Only live profiles are delivered, including all login info.
3. Rich Media Citations
Anyone can do plain old directory submissions, but to make them count, we beef them up with geo-tagged photos and videos, plus citations and links from rich media sources.
We create straightforward, Animoto style video slideshows, with music, pictures and text. These videos are optimized to the fullest extent, including geo-meta data. We then submit these videos to the top video hosting sources, creating high authority, legit links and citations.
Here, you provide us with 10, ideally relevant & branded images. We optimize, upload, and again optimize, including geo-meta data. We then submit these images to the top image hosting sources, creating high authority, legit links and citations.
4. Social Citations
In 2013 and beyond, social media is becoming more important. We make sure you’re ahead of the game and rounding out your citation profile by getting you awesome social citations.
In this module, we create careful, manual submissions, adding all media and content which again results in high authority, legit links and citations. We submit to powerful & authoritative social media sites.
We Also Offer Citation Clean Up
Do you check the data aggregators?
Yes, we visit Acxiom, Neustar Localeze, Infogroup, Factual and even Foursquare!
Do you fix all citations?
After 3 rounds of outreach, we typically are 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. These sites are usually low-tier and have little impact on rankings.
What do you mean by a round?
A round is defined as a single attempt to correct your citations, whether it be outreach or manually fixing where possible.
Am I paying per business or location?
A business may have 1000 locations, and surely we wouldn’t fix all that for under $349. You are paying per location, or per NAP.
Will you add pictures / change around my existing profiles?
If you have the logins for the properties, we can change them up. The problem is almost no one does. If not, it’s much harder to get the stuff changed, and this obviously what we can do differs per directory so it’s not something that we “sell” as something we do on our sales page for the service. The chief thing that we’re mostly concerned about is the biz name, address & phone which is really what’s going to mess up your results if anything.
How do you get around doing phone confirmations?
Relationships mostly. We’ve been mailing directories for the better part of 2+ years. Day in, day out. They have come to recognize us, and are usually pretty accommodating for the most part. A small percent of directories are harder to cooperate with. Usually these types of places aren’t too important anyways in the grand scheme of things.
