FAQs

How do I find local citations?

Finding citations yourself can be incredibly time-consuming. You’ll need to go on a hunt for business directories. Fortunately, you’ll find a full list of business directories on the BrightLocal site.

Keeping track of these citations is tricky, though. There are so many that keeping on top of them can become an ongoing, laborious task. When you use BrightLocal's Citation Tracker, all the hard work is done for you. The tool helps you see where you’re listed and what needs updating or changing.

How do I build citations?

There are a few different ways to build citations. Two of the most common are by manually building them on citation sites yourself, or by submitting business data to a local data aggregator.

Both can be time-consuming and expensive, but at BrightLocal we’ve created a simple Citation Building service where we do all the hard work and manual submissions for you.

Not only that, but we also offer a local data aggregator service that submits to the major aggregator networks, too.

What is a citation audit?

A citation audit is a full, top-down view of your citation profile. When you use Citation Tracker, you’ll be provided with a full report that includes:

- Existing citations
- A full NAP audit - What is NAP?
- Duplicate listings
- Missing citation sites you can add your business to, including those that your competitors are listed on, which you aren’t!

A citation audit will let you work out exactly what you need to do for your citation profile.

How do I find my existing citations and update them?
