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.
The Local SEO Check Up is my favorite tool. The depth and customization of the 'Check-up' report is phenomenal and is a great conversation starter with a client or prospect.
I enjoy the interaction and research that BrightLocal does with thousands of users within the local search industry, with exciting webinars using polls, questionnaires and great guest speakers.
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.
