    Hi From Oregon #2! - I need a tool recommendation!

    Hi everyone!

    After years of working in the LSEO field, I finally created an account here and am so excited to be here!

    I work for a digital marketing agency here in Portland, and am the "SEO Wizard" or digital strategist if you prefer traditional titles

    I have a question for everyone reading this...

    What tool do you use for citation tracking? We currently use BrightLocal, and have been having so many problems with them recently. Their reports are about 60-75% accurate, and I've had a better luck getting answers from a brick wall than their customer service. We used WhiteSpark in the past, but had some accuracy issues with them as well, so looking for recommendations!

    I'm working on a killer blog post about how to handle local business moves in terms of citations, and I NEED accurate reports to complete this!

    Thanks everyone, and happy Tuesday!

    Best,
    Brian Baker

    Hey Brian,

    Welcome to the fold! Thanks for doing an intro so members can get to know you.

    Those 2 are considered the best.

    You might have more luck getting replies if you post this Q down in the citation forum where the citation pros hang out. Darren and Nyag subscribe to that forum so will see your post and Myles from BrightLocal is a member and may comment as well.

    But if you want feedback that's the place to get it. Might want to use a more descriptive title with the word citations in it too, so people see it in their feedreader, than may be in the know.

    Again, welcome and thanks for joining us!

    Hi and welcome. I know lots of Tools - I can give you some of their phone numbers..


    But yea, you'll find some accuracy issues with all citation finding tools - I've spent years on the topic/issue and ending up building my own which is right now only for internal/private use but I'm happy to give members of the forum here a chance to test it. Nothing is totally accurate in all cases (too many variations on sites and business data) but we've continued to tweak and get it pretty close - like with most things in online marketing it can be good to check with a few different sources to best cover everything. Another one you can try (I think for free) that is decent is Local Marketing Software From Synup - from another member here on the forum who I think also ran into the problem of accuracy issues on existing tools so set out to build something.
