What We Do
We put small businesses in front of more local customers. Our local listing management and citation building services help you reach online buyers on search engines, websites, and apps, like:
How We Do It
Our local search experts strengthen your most important local listing, Google Business Profile, first. Then, we optimize hundreds of your local citations across highly influential directories. That way, your business has the best chance of finding customers long-term.
Local Citation Building
We create optimized local citations and distribute them to the most important business directories on the web—including industry-specific directories—to grow your business through local search results. By the end of this process, you’ll have a properly claimed and verified Google Business Profile.
Local Citation Cleanup
When unmanaged, online directories can list your business with inaccurate information. That inconsistent information leads to less visibility in local searches, confused searchers, and ultimately less conversions. We make sure your business hours, categories contact details, location on Google Maps, and all other details are accurate and consistent on your Google Business Profile.
Local Citation Maintenance
For the same reason a citation cleanup service is necessary, so is maintenance. Even if you clean up your local business listings, directories will update information on their own and often make mistakes. With Google Business Profile, users can suggest edits. Our team manually reviews these suggestions to minimize incorrect information and changes that are harmful to your listing’s performance.
Local Citation Optimization
After your business citations are published to local directories, you can get ahead of your competitors by leveraging Google Business Profile features like Google Posts, reviews, seeded Q&As, and more. We help you get the most out of your Google Profile and local listings.
Why Local SEO Matters for Small Businesses
Local searches—inquires that are location-specific like “gyms near me”—are where small businesses thrive. Tactics like citation building and local listing management help your business appear in these types of searches, leading to more customers visiting your website, calling, and buying your product or service.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are local citations?
Citations are any instance when 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 in prominent online business directories.
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.
