1. A Complete Citation Audit

A crucial part of any Local SEO strategy is ensuring a correct and complete NAP (Name-Address-Phone) citations across important listing websites, as not having consistent listing information will hurt your ranking.

Much of your SEO and PPC digital marketing efforts and money spent would be wasted without this critical step (which most local SEO agencies skip to save time and money).

That is why at BrandLume, the local listing services start with a very detailed, time-intensive audit of your business across the net.

This will give you a fully detailed report on incorrect/correct citations, the best strategy to fix them and eliminate duplicate listings that harm your Google ranking.

2. Local Directory SEO Optimization & Citation Building

We ensure that you’re on the BEST business directories for your company and industry through our manual and SEO-optimized NAP submissions.

We won’t just list you on a standard set of directories like 95% of similar company’s services (which don’t help your Local SEO ranking, since the listings are irrelevant to your industry).

Your custom campaign will be based on a combination of things like your business type, niche, city, industry, and competition density, and it’s built on our comprehensive data from crawling of 1000s of the best ranking Google+ local pages over the last 5+ years.

Your business NAP listing is submitted to 3 Tiers of listing directories, which has proven to be the most successful approach.

These are the most authoritative listing websites (like Yelp, Yellow Pages, and Facebook).
We put your business on directories related to your niche, keywords and SERPs you want to rank for (like HotFrog, Yellow Book, Merchant Circle)
We’ll submit your listing to review directories related to your industry, that are crawled and trusted by Google (like Yellowise, My Local Services, DealerRater)

Videos Citations:
