SNAP | Business Listing Cleanup

Local Citation Audit & Cleanup Service

The number one cause for poor local rankings is inconsistent and incorrect citations. Let Snap SEO do the harm reduction and clean up for you.

Why Citation Remediation?

In this busy world and every growing internet, wrong citations can happen to anyone and anywhere. Our businesses grow, downsize and even move with economic trends. While all this is happening, our local citations can get a little messy. Some of the more common incorrect citation listings happen for the following reasons:

  • You moved and got a new address
  • You got a new phone number
  • You have different variations of your name
  • An aggregator picked up some wrong information

Whatever the reason, this can put your search engine optimization game to a screeching halt. If these votes are going to incorrect sources, there is no way you can get the fuel to rank higher.

These need to be fixed, and Snap SEO will fix them for you!

What We Do

Fixing these issues isn’t an easy ordeal. Every citation source is different and as a result, a lot of manual labor is required to contact each site to correct the information.

This is why we put together our Local Citation Clean Up Service, where you can just push a button and our team of trained experts will:

  • Complete A Full Citation Audit For Your Business
  • Locate All The Incorrect Information
  • Contact Each Citation Source Individually
  • Fix All Of Your Citation Issues
  • Deliver Detailed, Comprehensive Report

We do this all to make sure you have the best opportunity to rank (and crush your competitors). We essentially do all the work for you, and give you a pretty report at the end.

It starts with a citation audit

How the internet perceives you locally and globally is a huge deal. A wrong citation can ruin your Local SEO game.
This human-powered report helps you find out where you stand, what citations are wrong and what is good.

How does Snap’s Citation Cleanup Service Work?

Citation Audit

STEP 1

Every order starts with a complete audit of existing citations. We don’t just fix a setlist of sites. We look at your entire profile and determine every single incorrect citation out there and document it.

Manual Outreach & Contact

STEP 2

Since every citation source is different, we created an internal Standard Operating Procedure for each site to know the best protocol for getting your citations corrected. We conduct 2 rounds of manual outreach via email, so we set up an email on your behalf and document all communications.

Correct Citations

STEP 3

Using the information you’ve provided us, we update the citations we have access to, manually reach out to the rest of the directories, and submit a request on your behalf to have the information consistent with your correct NAP.

Pricing & Packages

Citation Audit

What’s included?
Name, Address and Phone Variations (NAP): This is big, and you don’t want anything wrong. Major search engines like Google consider this when ranking, especially when querying geo-targeted searches.

Existing Correct Citations: It’s nice to know if you’re on the right track.

Incorrect Citations: Just like our bodies, if you work out, you get fit; if you work on SEO, you get results. We will show you where you went wrong and what Snap SEO can help you improve on.

Aggregator Citations: Some aggregators have high domain authority and send out the wrong data. We’ll let you know if they have the wrong data.

Citation Clean Up

This is no easy task. Every citation and aggregator is different with many different obstacles we have to cross. We manually go in and change every incorrect citation. We do this in a few easy steps.

  1. Citation Audit- We need to know what went wrong and where.
  2. Manual Harm Reduction – We manually reach out to aggregators and directories.
  3. Cleanup – No Marry Poppins magic here. We clean up and correct all inconsistencies.
  4. Deliver your report – We will include all the incorrect citations we fixed and any recommendations moving forward.

Note: We may have to impersonate someone from your company to complete this service. We found that being a representative of your company creates a more authentic feel for the receiving party. As a result, you may get increased phone calls and emails confirming these changes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I paying per business or location?

You are paying per location or per NAP.

Do you check the data aggregators?

Yes, we visit Acxiom, Neustar Localeze, Infogroup, Factual and even Foursquare!

Will you add pictures / change around my existing profiles?

If you have the logins for the properties, we can change them up. The problem is almost no one does. If not, it’s much harder to get the stuff changed, and this obviously what we can do differs per directory, so it’s not something that we “sell” as something we do on our sales page for the service. The chief thing that we’re mostly concerned about is the biz name, address & phone, which will mess up your results, if anything.

How do you get around doing phone confirmations?

Relationships mostly. We’ve been mailing directories for the better part of 5+ years. Day in, day out. They have come to recognize us, and are usually pretty accommodating for the most part. A small percent of directories are harder to cooperate with. Usually, these types of places aren’t too important anyways in the grand scheme of things.
