Citation Audit

A citation is a listing online that includes your business name, address and phone number – also referred to as an NAP. Your citation listings that appear online need to be accurate – even down to the suite number. A typo on a listing on another website where your phone number or name is incorrect can affect your search rankings and/or even direct traffic to your website.

What is our recommended solution? We will check your NAP details on directories where your citations appear. We will search on Google for the following NAP related items:

Another alternative is to search for citations by looking for citation directories. We review the top directories and niche/local directories to validate your listings. Some of the main directories include Google, Yelp, Yellowpages, CitySearch, Superpages, and DexKnows.

We can also claim listings for your business in case they have not been claimed already. This process will ensure that you are given access to edit and update your listings going forward
