6 Essentials of CitationBurst
1. Over 1,600 high value citation sites to choose from
Our Citation database contains over 1,600 ‘known’ citation sites. These are a powerful mix of general directories, local directories, niche directories & events sites which your business can be listed on. Citations are an essential factor for improving your Google+ Local ranking and CitationBurst makes generating local citations a cinch!
2. Hand-pick the directories you want
We filter our extensive citation database based on your location and business type. Then we suggest the most appropriate citations for your business and highlight which sites you’re already listed on. You can hand-pick the specific sites you want to be added to and if you want existing listings to be updated.
BrightLocal are very flexible when responding to customer requests, their services consistently do what they claim to be able to do, and they have continually rolled out new and useful features in the time that we have worked with them.
I would and do recommend Brightlocal as a strong tool for anyone who is serious about local search. Having them on your side is like having a full time local SEO staff.
3. Let our expert citations team do the hard work!
We have a team of 25 citation agents who handle all your submissions for you. We submit directly to each site to ensure immediate delivery of content which helps generate listings faster than using ‘data aggregators’ and content hubs. We create unique email accounts and directory profiles for each campaign and give you the login details once the campaign is complete.
Submission costs are US$3 per directory (US$2 for bulk orders)

4. Clear & interactive campaign reports
All submissions are completed within 14 days and we provide a clear, online report that enables you to keep track of progress. All live listing URLs are uploaded to the report and you can click through to review the listings.
5. Easy campaign management
With our new 'Buy More' feature it's so easy to manage your citation campaigns. You simply set a a new campaign, identify the relevant directories for that client and use the 'Buy More' button to order the next batch of submissions when you want them. We submit the same business information each time and ensure that we don't submit to the same directories twice!
6. 70% of submissions = live listings
We guarantee that at least 70% of our submissions will result in live, active citations. Like other link building or directory submission services, we don't control the sites we use but focus our efforts on directories which are of high quality and deliver a high percentage of live listings.
