Building and optimizing local search citations is time-consuming work that small businesses simply don’t have time for—especially factoring in the monthly maintenance required. So let us handle the repetitive, boring work that leads to more customers finding your business on Google Search, Google Maps, Apple Maps, and more so you can focus on what you do best.
What We Do
We help small businesses get featured when local customers are searching for the exact product or services they offer. Our citation services, as part of our local SEO package, help small businesses reach customers on the websites and apps where they’re looking for businesses like yours, including:
How We Do It
We optimize all of the following aspects of your Google Business Profile to create the strongest listing with the best chance help your business reach new customers.
Local Citation Building
We build citations across hundreds of the most influential business directories on the web—including industry-specific directories—to give you the local SEO foundation you need to grow your business through local search results.
Local Citation Cleanup
When unmanaged, directories across the web will list your business with inaccurate information. These inconsistencies can lead to less visibility in local searches, confusion for searchers seeing inaccurate info, and ultimately your customers choosing another business.
Local Citation Maintenance
For the same reason cleanup is necessary, so is maintenance. Even if you clean up your business listings, directories will update information on their own and often make mistakes. We make sure that doesn’t happen.
Why Local Business Citations Matter for Small Businesses
Local searches—or searches that are location-specific such as “gyms near me”—are where small local businesses thrive. Local search optimization tactics like citation building and management help your business to appear in these valuable searches, leading to more customers visiting your website and calling and visiting your business.
Citations are a foundational piece of local search optimization. Small businesses with optimized business citations perform better than those that don’t. The success of Local Search Fuel clients who have optimized citations through our local SEO solution speaks to that.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are local citations?
Citations are any instance where your business is mentioned online. Structured citations, which is what Local Search Fuel focuses on, are mentions of your business name, address, and phone number (often called “NAP”). These are typically found on prominent directories across the internet.
Do local citations still matter?
Yes, they do. While local SEO has changed over the years and there are other important factors to local search success, we still see that clean, optimized citations make a big difference for our clients.
What else factors into local SEO success?
Citations are one factor, but there are many others. Your Google Business Profile (a.k.a. Google My Business) listing and website are two others that stand out. GBP optimization is part of our local SEO solution, and we also build exceptional yet affordable small business websites.
Need a Website?
Local SEO services help small businesses gain visibility online, but your website is just as important. If your website isn’t up to speed, we can help with that, too. We build beautiful, affordable small business websites that are optimized to perform.
