Citation SEO: Pt. 2, Clean Up Your Act

Citation SEO Tip

It should be no secret by now that local citation SEO changes are about to take into full swing (if you haven’t yet, be sure to read that post before this one)! It’ll be EXTREMELY important to clean up your local listing presence this year to avoid Google penalty – trust me, you do NOT want to make Google angry!!

So what can you do about all your tens, maybe hundreds of local listings to make them Google ranking friendly in 2014?

How to Control 400+ Local Listings in Minutes
PO_ADS_Vertical_Free_2After investing hours and hours into building up your pooling of local listings, you probably don’t want to go back into them each individually and reconfigure them one by one.

That’s why I’ve teamed us up with Yext for some KILLER local listing editing software so you can handle all your listings in literally a matter of minutes!!

We’ve put together a free one-time scan that will give you a complete profile of your local listing presence instantly to give you an idea of what you’re looking at here. The full software then lets you manage them all with the click of a button and a few taps of the keyboard.

Bing Local, Yahoo! Local, Foursquare, YellowBot, Yelp, MerchantCircle, Citysearch… you name it, you can control it. That’s powerful stuff!

Of course these aren’t the only 2014 Google citation updates you should be worried about. In fact, you may need to revamp your entire SEO approach starting this year. Google’s changes aren’t a fluke – you can expect them to keep diminishing the power of yesteryear’s seedy SEO tactics that have attempted to “trick” Google crawlers and SERP algorithms. So as Scar once sang in The Lion King: Be Prepared!!!

 

So have the Google updates gotten a fire under your bum to clean up your listings? Why/why not?!
