    Hey All,

    It has been a while since I posted something good. I opened my window this morning, and a beautiful butterfly flew right in, it was orange with dark dots, looked awsome, and well, it reminded me of awsome placed such as, BHW! So here I am.... let us not keep secrets for we all need to share :p

    Depends on your location this may vary, though I have had excellent luck getting clients on the 7-pack using the following list of citations i have collected over the year and proved to be 'above average - best'. You still need to know how to cite, but here is the list for those pros.

    Do share your success, and hope you "appreciate" my "sharing" (funny, i SCREAM at my kids to share their toys, yet when it comes to share our stuff here, 90% i think dont.....) so being a good role model for my kids (who will never see this post (I HOPE!) ;-)

    Included are great citation sites for USA, CANADA, UK & AU

    Lets all share, and lets all win !

    Here are 50 for the USA:

    1 ExpressUpdate Sign up via https://auth.data-axle.infogroup.com/signups/new

    3 Acxiom Create an account by clicking on "Welcome, Guest Create Account here" https://mybusinesslistingmanager.myacxiom.com *Note: All new listings need to be verified by uploading an official document, which confirms the accuracy of the business information submitted, to Acxiom?s website.
    4 Factual Currently there is no way to add listings on Factual manually. You should either obtain access to their API, or you should go through one of their trusted data contributors. *Note: Whitespark does have API access to Factual, so we are able to add, update, and remove listings in their database.

    Great list, and special thanks for the actual links. Many of these sites will drive you crazy before you figure out how to add your business.

    Thanks for Canada. I'm doing local site for a friend and have never really done local before (with above average effort), so this will help.

    Holy Hell! This must have taken years to compile! It's weird how the bullets break though?

    You know what else is weird? How Whitespark.ca, a leader in Local SEO, happened to put out a list just like this last week!
    And when I say "just like this" I mean identical.

    You suck for scraping other peoples hard work. It makes you look like a schmuck.
