1. Full Citation Audit
The most important part of any local SEO campaign is ensuring consistency, which is why every single Hexalinks local campaign starts with a full audit.
Without this crucial step, you’d be wasting resources by throwing money down the drain.
We put every campaign through this extremely detailed and time-intensive process. We catalog 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 efficiently.
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 a standard list of directories. Every single campaign is different and we leverage three strategies to determine which directories to submit to for each specific client.
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 will scrape competitor review directories to find Google-trusted directories.
We claim all of the most important directories 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). We deliver a transparent report 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.
We create straightforward, whiteboard-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, legitimate links, and citations.
Provide us with ten ideally relevant & branded images. We optimize, upload, and again optimize, including geo-meta data. Then we submit these images to the top image hosting sources, creating high authority, legitimate links, and citations.
4. Social Citations
This year and beyond, social media is increasingly essential. We make sure you’re ahead of the game and rounding out your citation profile by getting you awesome social citations.
We create careful, manual submissions, adding all media and content which again results in high authority, legitimate links, and citations. We submit to powerful & authoritative social media sites.
Citations are a big deal to local SEO. But with hundreds of directories out there, do you know where you stand? What citations do you have, what are you missing, and what citations are incorrect? With the Hexalinks Local Citation audit, we’ll manually scour the web to find exactly where you stand and deliver you a beautiful report with:
