TERMINOLOGY:

A citation is an online reference to your business’s name, address and phone number (NAP). Like links to your website, Google uses them when evaluating the online authority of your business.
For a citation to help with your local SEO strategy, it’s important that it exactly matches the info on your website and on your Google+ Local page.
NAP stands for Name, Address, Phone Number. NAP is critical for businesses wishing to rank well in the local organic search results, because search engines like Google take the data into account when determining which companies to show for geo-targeted searches.

Built on the 4 Critical Components of Local SEO


1. FULL CITATION AUDIT

The most important part of any Local SEO campaign is ensuring consistency, which is why every single Artful Pussycat Local campaign starts with a full audit.

2. LOCAL DIRECTORY CITATIONS

Local directory citations are the bread and butter of local. We make sure you are in the BEST directories for your niche and market.

3. RICH MEDIA CITATIONS

Anyone can do plain old directory submissions, but to make them count, we beef them up with geo-tagged photos and videos, plus citations and links from rich media sources.

4. SOCIAL CITATIONS

Social media is becoming more important every year. We make sure you’re ahead of the game by getting you awesome social citations.


1 – FULL CITATION AUDIT

The most important part of any Local SEO campaign is ensuring consistency, which is why every single Artful Pussycat Local campaign starts with a full audit.

Without this crucial step (that some competitors skip), you’d be throwing money down the drain.

We put every campaign through this extremely detailed, time intensive process. We catalogue correct and incorrect citations, avoiding any duplication of efforts. This results in a fully detailed report, including a road map on how to repair incorrect citations most effectively.


2 – LOCAL CITATIONS BUILDING

Local directory citations are the bread and butter of local SEO. With our careful, manual submissions, we make sure you are in the BEST directories for your niche and market. This is not just a standard list of directories. Every single campaign is different and we leverage 3 strategies for determining which directories to submit to for your particular business.

Strategy 1: Ego directories – The most popular, traffic dense, authority directories.
Strategy 2: Competitor directories – We take your specific keywords and find out what citations are important not only in your industry but your specific SERPs.
Strategy 3: Competitor review directories – We scrape competitor review directories to find Google trusted directories.

We claim all the most important directories where possible, and provide detailed instructions for all others that should be verified by the client (some require a phone call for verification or other methods). Only live profiles are delivered, including all login info.


3 – RICH MEDIA CITATIONS

Anyone can do plain old directory submissions, but to make them count, we beef them up with geo-tagged photos and videos, plus citations and links from rich media sources.

Video
We create straightforward, Animoto style video slideshows, with music, pictures and text. These videos are optimized to the fullest extent, including geo-meta data. We then submit these videos to the top video hosting sources, creating high authority, legit links and citations.

Photos
Here, you provide us with 10, ideally relevant & branded images. We optimize, upload, and again optimize, including geo-meta data. We then submit these images to the top image hosting sources, creating high authority, legit links and citations.


4 – SOCIAL CITATIONS

Since 2013 and beyond, social media is becoming more important. We make sure you’re ahead of the game and rounding out your citation profile by getting you awesome social citations.

In this module, we create careful, manual submissions, adding all media and content which again results in high authority, legit links and citations. We submit to powerful & authoritative social media sites.

These are not published on your own social media accounts, these are published by others to give you maximum exposure.
