INTRODUCING BIG CITATIONS:

THE MOST AUTHORITATIVE BUSINESS LISTING SERVICE FOR LOCAL RANKING


8nsyYHz


Compare to Universal Business Listings at 30% of the Cost


Big Citations is the big brother of our Hyper-Local Citations service. Big Citations focuses on a handful of must-have citations and big data aggregators, perfect for new sites or businesses who haven't built many citations yet.

This service is best thought of as a mix between a Getlisted.org service and a Universal Business Listing alternative.

We combine submission to the big data aggregators that UBL submits to like Infogroup and Acxiom as well as creation of business listings on the top 20 best business listing sites, most are what GetListed.org reports.

This one-two combo makes for the most compact, authoritative local ranking service you'll find anywhere online... all at a price affordable enough to resell.

DO YOUR LINKS ACTUALLY INDEX?

With every order we push your live links through our indexing process.

There is no extra charge for this and the majority of what we build for you should index just fine.

In fact, we do this for all services.

THE BIG 3 DATA AGGREGATORS

You may have seen this infographic put together by GetListed.org. It shows first-hand the kind of power the large data aggregators have over all other citation sites.

We can submit to the 3 most influential data aggregators. Cumulatively these 3 sites feed over 23 other major sites like Google Maps, AOL Local, Apple / Siri, and others you've heard of. Through testing some of these agreggators, I've found that big ones like Infogroup will even create a Google Places listing (among many other sites) for you, if one doesn't exist already.

Here's the shortlist of the big data aggregators we submit to and a little bit of info about each one:


Infogroup

7GB4EvB


This big dog powers the likes of Google Maps, Mapquest, Bing Local, Yahoo Local, TomTom, AOL Local, and the list goes on.
Out of all 3, this is the single most powerful local data aggregator.
I have had Google Places pages created automatically after submission to Infogroup.



Acxiom

8caWjew


A big data company, you can even use their data in Facebook Ad targeting.
They power major sites like Yelp, Yellowpages, Superpages, Local.com, Apple, and more.



Factual

Compared to the above 2 Factual is a smaller player but still has an inside feed directly to Apple, Bing, TripAdvisor, and others.


If your business information is incorrect at any of these 3 major providers, it may override what the major search engines have in their own database. And if you're not included in the databases of these major providers, you might not be able to rank as easily in Google, Yahoo, and Bing.

Important Note: Localeze is one big data provider that is missing and we have had to exclude it because they charge $297 per year for listing with them. However, what you get with Infogroup, Acxiom, and Factual combined has more reach than Localeze. Plus, at just 10% of the cost through us without a yearly subscription this service right here is a no-brainer.

[CITATION CASE STUDY RESULTS:
THE GOOD AND THE BAD


I've been testing citations since 2012, here's some of my findings.
If your local site is already on the map for some of its important keywords (2nd, 3rd, 4th page), chances are high that citations will have a noticeable affect on your SERPs.


The BAD news first, this service is NOT for:

Thin affiliate sites.

Sites or businesses that don't have a physical address. You can rank for a while with a fake address but it's not a long-term strategy.[/font][/li]

Now for the GOOD news


It works very well for local businesses trying to rank locally

I did a case study in 2012 (Testing the Ranking Effects of Citations on Local Business Websites), with an update at the bottom of the same article in 2013 (How Many Citations Do You Really Need to Front-Page a Local Business?) where I shared a few graph like these:

Here's also a couple results even more recently from 2014 - a local roofing and a repair keyword.

F.A.Q.

What do you do if you come across a listing that already exists?
If we come across listings that you already have, we'll add them to the report and complete a citation somewhere else. You are guaranteed at least 20 new citations from this service + submission to the big 3 data agreggators if it's needed.


What if I have already ordered Hyper-Local Citations for my site?
We will consolidate the work from this report into the Master List from your Hyper-Local Citations order(s).


What does my site need to get started?
All you need is a business name, address, phone number, and a URL.

What If I'm Working with Multiple Locations?

The way franchises do it is they create a separate sub-page within the main site for each location. This sub-page should contain all the essentials for local ranking: the address, phone number, (ideally) a google maps embedded, content relevant to the area, and (ideally) a strong CTA.

How Do I Know If My Clients Need This Service?

What we recommend for new clients is running a citation audit within the first month. This will give you a great indication not only of what citations they have, but also if they're accurate or not. We offer full citation audits at just $14.99.

Summary
For the review, I had @Andrew Scherer use their "big citations" package on a random local business listing I found. The details of my review are below.

Service Highlights
  • The report was quite comprehensive and contained columns of data of the business name, address, phone number, category shown, username, password, email, URL and the occasional screenshots of the listings.
  • Those of you involved in local SEO will already know that the consistency of your name, address, and phone number are important, and with this service, all of that information was consistent in the listings right down to the abbreviation of "road".
  • If any citations are found to be pre-existing in their main list, the citation will be marked as pre-existing in the report and a new citation will be created instead. According to the seller, this is standard procedure with their service (otherwise it would just be citation checking service, not a citation building service).
What Could Use Improvement
  • I found the report to be a bit messy in terms of cell spacing, but this issue was easily remedied by spacing out the rows myself.
Additional Information
  • There's no TAT listed in the thread, but I received my report in 10 days.
For buyers: The quality of the product or service that I receive is what you should expect, or better. If you feel that the quality of the service has dropped significantly, please let us know via the report button.

We are giving away 5 free review copies to Jr VIP and 5 free review copies to anyone with 100+ posts.

I may end up offering more in the future as well.
 
Mod asked me what free reviews would be getting. It is 1 free order of Big Citations ($29.99).

Sorry, forgot. Is this only for US or any country in the world?

We can do any country, we will just replace the US-only citations with others that allow other countries if it is not for a US business.

PMed you all w/ details for free review copy.
 
FYI that font colour is almost impossible to read on the BHW white theme o_O
 
In for a review please.
I’ve a local business this would really benefit.
 
ill take a review copy please and a discount coupon for future orders
 
I can completely vouch for Andrew. He knows Local SEO throughout and is one of the few that
can be trusted to get citations right. They all come neatly in a folder with account access.

Good luck with sales!
