HARNESS THE POWER OF LOCAL

HARNESS THE POWER
OF LOCAL

Local visibility has never been more important for businesses of all shapes, sizes and industries. It’s also never been harder to achieve local prominence. Seedhub Media’s local citation building service makes it easy for you to harness the power of local and deliver real results to your clients.

1. ACCURATE CITATIONS

7 in 10 local consumers say they would stop using a local business if they found inaccurate or incorrect information in an online directory. You don’t want your agency to be the reason your clients lose out on prospects and sales.

Not all citations are created equally. We use a wealth of data and years of information to build the most beneficial citations for your local clients, focusing on region and industry.

2. LOCAL VISIBILITY = MORE TRAFFIC

Citations aren’t just about pleasing the search engine. They’re about building complete local visibility for more online traffic and increased footfall.

We’ll scour our database to identify the most appropriate citation sites, create a high priority list and then get to work.

3. FAST TURNAROUND

Seedhub Media acts as part of your team. We hold ourselves to your deadlines with a quick, efficient and reliable service that allows you to delight your client and deliver on your campaign promises.

WHAT IS A LOCAL CITATION?

WHAT IS A LOCAL CITATION?

A local citation is a collection of useful information about businesses that have a physical location. You might hear this referred to as NAP: Name – Address – Phone number.

Those three elements are the basics of a citation. But some citations are more detailed. They may include other data that could be useful to local consumers searching for a local business or service provider, such as opening hours, website URL, and email address.

This might not sound like much, but absolute consistency is vital. Your client’s customers might find this information on Facebook. They could come across it in an online directory or even in a newspaper event listing.

The last thing you – or your client – want is to have that local consumer unable to find the location and drive off to spend their money with a competitor instead.

A local citation is also a form of SEO currency. Build enough of them, and a search engine will probably feel that they can trust that the information is real.

That means your local business might gain a few places in the local pack. And that translates to much higher numbers on your next website traffic report.

  • A citation is a collection of business information that includes name, address and phone number (NAP)
  • Other details to add are: Opening times, website and email address
  • Results-focused web copy can turn browsers into buyers
  • A local business citation can be added in online directories, social media, event listings and media reports
  • Your NAP and other information must be consistent and accurate across the web

1. LOCAL SEO RANKING FACTOR

A question we’re often asked is how to improve local SEO listings. One of our answers is to use a location citation building service to add a stream of accurate citations.

This isn’t just because we like building citations (we do!). For the last several years, citations have been considered a local SEO ranking factor. They can directly affect local pack placement.

2. BUILDING CREDIBILITY

Why? Yelp says citations tell search engines that a business is credible and real. A listing in a trade or city directory, or a mention in an online news hub, can’t easily be faked. The more such mentions a business receives, the more a search engine considers it legitimate (and thus, may rank it higher).

3. FEEDING GOOGLE

Another reason to add local citations to your SEO arsenal is that they create data. And Google loves data! More citations mean more prominence.

You’re signaling to the search engines that your business is popular and active. And you’re giving it lots of data points from a range of sources.

4. BOOST YOUR ONLINE VISIBILITY

Want a bonus point? The more citations you create, the easier it is for your client to be found online.

Local consumers use local citations to find local businesses. If you need buy-in from your client, slip these stats into your pitch:

  • 68% of local consumers say they’d stop using a local business if citation information was incorrect
  • 40% would give up on a search for a local business if they couldn’t find the right address online

You want to deliver the best possible results for your clients and that means maximizing every opportunity to drive a conversion. Our local citation building service delivers on your promises by building accurate citations to give local consumers the information they need to call, visit and buy.

Happier local business owners = A better ROI on your client campaigns.

  • You look like an SEO rock star with no costly additions to your team or wasted hours scouring citation sources
  • We use our data and years of citation know-how to build the most useful, relevant local citations
  • Your client gets a local search boost and more Google visibility
  • Consumers find it easier to find your client’s bricks and mortar location for improved foot traffic
  • Better rankings, more visits, more sales

PUTTING LOCAL DATA AGGREGATOR
TO WORK FOR YOU

PUTTING LOCAL DATA AGGREGATOR TO WORK FOR YOU

Inaccurate, out-of-date business listings can seriously derail your local search placement. If your data is bad, a phone number is incorrect or an address old, the last thing your local search campaign needs for that incorrect data is to spread online.

Let our citation experts stop the bad data in its track with our data aggregator service. We’ll clean up outdated information and help spread accurate details across the search ecosystem.

We work with the three data aggregators: Foursquare, Neustar Localeze, Acxiom.

They collect business information from all around the web and share it with sources, such as online directories.

By taking the time to check your client’s citation information, clean up bad data and then share with these aggregators, we can harness their enormous reach to drive performance improvements in your local search campaigns.

Strategy

What is your communication style?
Our agency has established a professional approach to communicating with clients. Getting the balance between given too little and too much information can sometimes be a challenge but our account managers are there to make sure you have someone to talk with when you need them.
What is the payment schedule?
We invoice monthly and accept a variety of currencies, GBP, Euro and USD. We accept payment on bank transfer, card payment and PayPal.

How much does your service cost?
Search engine optimisation is a fundamental part of digital marketing and as such the cost can vary from client to client depending on need.
Our white label pricing structure is designed so that our white label partners are able to resell our services and make a good margin.

How do you measure results?
Measuring results is important. The main two metrics that a search engine optimization campaign affects are Search Impressions and Organic Traffic visiting a website. This applies to Local SEO as well, although Google’s metrics are named a little different for Google My Business profile listings.

Where appropriate we encourage goal tracking and enhanced ecom analytics so that it is easier to establish a positive return of investment.

We track search impressions through Google Search Console and organic visitors through Google Analytics. For Google My Business we use a tool like Local Viking which allows us to use Google API to have access to the full set of search metrics. In addition to this we also use GeoGrid reports to track GMBs at key locations.
Can you guarantee a No. 1 ranking on Google?
No. We don’t control how Google ranks the websites it has in its index. At the start of a campaign we analyse the competitiveness of a particular search term and make a realistic assessment of the ranking and traffic opportunities available.
What are the services you offer?
It’s important to understand what you can expect when working with Seedhub. We offer on-page optimisation services, link building outreach and a full complement of Local SEO services including citation building and review generation and management. These services are available direct to the client or through a White Label partnership.
What are your strategies for improving brand awareness and search rankings?
We use a mix of Google own Webmaster Guidelines and interpreting Google’s patents. Using these two main sources we can create an agile strategy that focuses on improving the brands authority and increasing visibility for search terms that deliver a return on the investment.
How do you adapt to changes in Google’s algorithm?
Google modifies its search algorithms almost daily and releases a ‘Core Update’ monthly.
It is for this reason that we keep up to date on the changes and test regularly. Scientific testing and measuring the efficacy of a variety of search factors is a vital part of any search strategy as it enables you to track what changes actually affect the order on the search engine ranking pages. Our software measures and tracks over 2000 potential ranking signal areas giving us important insights into the relative importance of a myriad of signals.

All our SEO strategies and tactics are under constant review and our team of specialists are able to implement strategies very quickly meaning that our clients aren’t left behind or negatively affected by algorithm updates.
