Customer Testimonials

"BrightLocal customized their tools based on our needs. They came up with a rank checker for AdWords ads which is something I have never been able to find anywhere else."

“BrightLocal help us show our clients success; the Local Search Rank Checker helps us keep track of where our clients rank online, whist the Google My Business Audit is amazing at helping you see what your competitors are doing, and which rankings you are lacking. We were using a different company to track local rankings for Google My Business listings but the results were extremely inaccurate. With BrightLocal, however, we see much more accurate results.”

"BrightLocal's detailed, white-label reports are fantastic."

"The Agency Lead Generator widget saves us a lot of time, as we would normally have to manually generate and send these types of SEO reports ourselves. We’re saving around 30 mins per lead. That’s a saving of $500 per month on 25 leads."

"BrightLocal has helped us gain top local search positions for our clients. We actually started to see results before the Free Trial was even up."

“We are a Digital Agency based in Bristol, UK and have a large portfolio of local internet marketing clients. BrightLocal has enabled us to manage local search campaigns and achieve good results. Initially it helped us analyze the competition in order to manage client expectations. The Google My Business Audit takes the hard work out of optimizing a search listing and the Citation Tracker helps us to identify new opportunities. Product support has been great (but rarely needed) and the pricing is very cost-effective. As a Digital Marketing Consultant, I highly recommend it to other agencies as the only local listings tool you will need!”

"The team at BrightLocal has been extremely professional and helped customize their application for our specific needs. They made the setup nearly effortless! I would recommend BrightLocal, just not to our competitors!"

“We were in need of a tool to help us review client rankings in major search engines and local listings. BrightLocal met all our needs and was reasonably priced. Reports are generated in the cloud and didn’t shut down our internet access like another product we tried. We really like BrightLocal because of their reliability and the consistency. We can ‘set and forget’ reports’, knowing they’ll be ready to review when we need them.”

"BrightLocal have been a pleasure to work with. Our needs are unique and they have put forth their best efforts into getting our accounts imported and set up as soon as possible."

“Working in the franchise space means we need to determine ranking trends at a local level across a vast network of locations. BrightLocal’s aggregated roll-up report is therefore invaluable. We have used other rank reporting tools, but none of them offered the local expertise of BrightLocal. I would highly recommend them; the tools are well built, very functional and the support that the team have given us to get our reporting needs up and running has been second to none. When we had to make a large change to the reports, their team put extra hours in that went beyond the call of duty. We couldn’t be happier with their services and support.”

“The BrightLocal suite of tools has helped our agency save valuable time and resources across countless local SEO campaigns. We have then been able to invest this additional time and energy into other areas of the wider SEO strategy. "We have seen huge success using the Citation Builder to build, clean up and manage the citation profiles of our local clients. Never has a consistent name, address and phone number (NAP) been more important and, thanks to BrightLocal, never has this been more achievable. A lot of the local rankings and results our clients have enjoyed over the years can be traced back to the work that BrightLocal has allowed us to carry out.”
