Improve Google and Bing Local Listing rankings with Citations

Citations are local mentions of your business’s name, while a local listing is your entry in an online directory of businesses in your area. Citations are a key component of the ranking algorithms in Google and Bing.

Citations from well-established portals (i.e., Superpages.com) help increase the degree of certainty the search engines have about your business and help improve your rankings in Google and Bing.

Citations from spammy web directories could hurt your rankings, so it's super important that you are careful with where you submit.

Our agency offers a local SEO search strategy specifically tailored to your location to ensure the right external location signals are sent as well as inbound links, on-page and social signals, and review signals to Google about the locations most relevant to your business. We use marketing strategies that allow you to build a stronger customer base that allows your business to grow organically.

We put great effort to achieve higher rankings in local search results by regularly checking the traffic source and continuously re-evaluating information for accuracy. We create profiles on popular web and social media platforms, and provide useful information to target audiences.
