Hi everybody! My name is Ashlynn and I’m one of the marketing managers here at Bambiz. Today I want to go over how you can easily build your local citations to help boost your local SEO.

You may be wondering “What’s a local citation?” A local citation is any online mention of the name, address, and phone number of a local business. The more accurate your business information, the more likely it is to rank higher on search engine results pages.

You can start out by using a free tool like Moz’s Local Listing Score to check the accuracy of your local listings. Once you have this information, you can visit each site and update the incorrect information.

Another way to check your local citations is by performing a manual citation audit. Although this method may be more time consuming, the up-to-date results will boost your rankings in search engines.

If all of this seems a bit overwhelming, let us help you! Whether you need fresh, original blog content, more client reviews, or your website to rank for relevant keywords, we’ve got your SEO needs covered. Click here to learn more.
