Citations can help improve local SEO rankings while also providing a diverse base for a link portfolio. Local SEO results have become increasingly important, especially for small and local businesses. Citations help identify the relevance and popularity of a site, and improve ranking within Google Places and other local listing directories.
WildShark’s white label local citation service includes regular reporting using your branding, regular updates, and manually built ethical citations. Citation building is a long-winded and repetitive task. Using our reseller services, you can concentrate on other aspects of marketing a website or servicing a client while we undertake the citation building process.
Our local citation service can be included as part of a white label reseller service. This means that we conduct all citation building under your name and on your behalf. We provide you with regular reports of our progress and we can incorporate your own branding while excluding any mention of WildShark. Our citation service is also scaleable and can be used on an ongoing basis to further enhance the profile of your clients’ websites.
Citation building can also be combined with other white label services, such as guest blogging, in order to create a powerful and effective link profile for your client sites.
The primary purpose of citations is to improve a website’s position within local search rankings. This not only includes searches that incorporate geotargeted keywords, but also searches conducted by web users that are searching from the same area as a website is based. Local businesses can benefit from having a prominent position in Google Paces, and this appears at the top of organic Google search results, meaning that local SEO provides one of the most viable means of reaching the top of search results for a lot of organisations.
Many citations do not include links back to your website and should, instead, include your company name, company address, and contact details. They should all use the same or a similar format, and the most beneficial citations are those that include all of these details. Some directories allow for the inclusion of a website address, and may also link to the website from this address. While these links may not be the most powerful available links, because Google does not consider them earned links, they do help diversify a link profile and this is important to Google and other search engines.
WildShark can help further provide a diverse link profile by offering guest posting, infographic sharing, and more. Not only are these links diverse but they are also powerful and relevant when combined.
