6 Essentials of Citation Tracker
1. Find & Track your Active Citations
We hunt through Google to identify which directories & sites your business exists on and return a full list of websites with links straight to your Citation on each site. We call these your Active Citations.
BrightLocal has some amazing tools. We use them to help land clients as well as to streamline our Local SEO efforts. I highly recommend them.
CitationBurst is my favorite tool. It's allowed us to scale our Local SEO business without hiring the amount of workers it would take to do citations for every client.
3. Identify Old & Incorrect Citations
We use your old business name or/and old address to find old listings. You can use this list to know which citations need to be updated/removed and whether your new business name/address already has a citation there.
4. Identify your Competitors' Citations
We identify your top 5 competitors in Google+ Local. Then we find which Citations they have but you do not. These are your ‘Potential Citations’.
Now you can claim these for yourself and watch your business sore up the Google+ rankings.
5. Easily Compare & Prioritize Citations
We help you sort the good Citations from the bad ones by providing ‘Domain Authority’ and ‘Citation Value’ scores for each citation. Citation Value is unique to BrightLocal and tells you which citation sites are most powerful.
6. 'Type of Site' & Free Listings
We also tell you the ‘Type of Site’ for each Citation and if they offer a ‘Free Listing’. This means you can focus your efforts on getting the highest value, free Citations for your business.
