VERIFY YOUR BUSINESS INFORMATION
It can be challenging to maintain an accurate and clean business citation profile. Business information propagates online all the time, sometimes to the extent that it’s a hassle to keep all your information in check. Finding your business citations is time consuming and it’s usually too easy for some of them to remain unnoticed. We do a comprehensive, all manual research to find every citation (correct, incorrect or simply with outdated information) and report them to you.
KEEP THE MAJOR DATA AGGREGATORS IN CHECK (U.S. ONLY)
There are four major data aggregators (InfoGroup, Acxiom, Localeze and Factual) which provide information about your business to a vast number of citation sources, apps and institutions. It’s essential to make sure they have the right information in order to prevent incorrect data propagation down the chain.
Finding your business mentions is a long and tedious process. It can take up to 50 hours for a specialist to locate and analyze all business citations. Why do it yourself? Save your time and energy for running your business.
Let us build high quality citations for you!
We will ask you to fill out our intake form with your current and old business information. The quality of the provided information will determine the success of our Citation Audit campaign.
Verify Your Business Information
We then verify the information you have sent us. If we find any inconsistencies between the data you provided and the business information online, we will get in touch with you to discuss ways to resolve this issue. Accurate and full business information is crucial in order to be able to discover all existing citations.
Research the Major Data Aggregators (U.S. clients only)
We will research for old and current business information in the four major data aggregators (InfoGroup, Acxiom, Localeze and Factual).
Discover All Existing Local Citations
Ultimately, we find all your existing local citations (correct, incorrect, and duplicate citations). This process is all done manually because we believe that the automated alternatives, while providing some nice benefits, are still not as accurate, flexible, or comprehensive as the manual research we perform. We pay close attention to your Google+ listing(s) when we perform our research.
We take quality seriously and we take pride in our quality control for all our services. Citation Audit is not an exception. After we finish the discovery stage, we will send your report to our quality control specialists who will carefully check all the information.
One week after you place the order we will send you a comprehensive report of all discovered citations ranked according to importance for Google and a cleanup suggestion from a citation expert.
