The Citation Building Audit

A citation audit is a careful analysis and inventory of a business' existing citations on top directory sites. This is a critical first step in any local SEO strategy.

"Finding local businesses is rapidly becoming what the internet is for. Four out of five mobile phone owners use their mobile phone to search for local business information. However, if you information is incorrect, or missing - then you are missing out on that customer's pruchase."
Jimj Catanich
