    New FREE Citation Tool for Small Business Owners Finally Completed

    After about a month of development, I'm proud to announce the launch of my citation tool. This was actually a tool I had developed for my own purposes and then decided to clean it up and release it to the public as I thought small business owners could benefit from it.

    If you're a small business owner (or local SEO consultant) and need a quick and easy tool to figure out where to submit your citations (and then track your submissions), give the tool a spin and let me know what you think!

    Thanks Linda! As you know, I don't touch the development...lol. I'm only the mastermind/project manager. I love coming up with ideas for tools and then having them built. I've got others coming so stay tuned...

    Re: New FREE Citation Tool for Small Business Owners Finally Completed

    Very exciting new tool, especially as its FREE. Thanks for providing this Travis- I will share around and mention on the blog.

    Been giving it a whirl myself. I see that on the UK..it's giving a list of the best citation sources (across the board)---which is still very very useful.

    Re: New FREE Citation Tool for Small Business Owners Finally Completed

    Thanks Nick. Ya, for the other countries I haven't gotten around to sorting the citations out by industry or city and to be honest, I don't know that I will. Like I said, I built this tool initially for my own purposes. And since I work strictly with U.S.-based companies, that is where my focus was with this tool.

    Having said that, if you or anyone else has a better way to breakdown the U.K. citations, I'll be more than happy to add that to the tool!

    I myself use Whitespark's Local Citation finder (of course it needs no introduction!) to get a good run down for the UK citations:

    https://www.whitespark.ca/local-citation-finder/

    ------

    However, here is a run-down of some great threads about UK citation sources:

    David Mihm
    The Guide to UK Citations for Local Search | Mihmorandum

    Phil Rozek
    Top UK Local-Business Directories (AKA Citation Sources) | LocalVisibilitySystem.com

    Mike Blumenthal
    Guest post: Top 10 local UK business directories compared & rated | Understanding Google Places & Local Search

    NGS Marketing-Nyagoslav Zhekov

    --------------

    Hope that helps UK folks.
