    Best Options For Using Available Tools For Citation Audit

    We have pretty much all of the tools out there for citations - Local Citation Finder, Moz Local, Yext, Brightlocal, etc. The person in our office doing citation audits is getting a bit overwhelmed by the volume of information.

    Does anybody have a good process for utilizing these tools for a citation audit (inconsistent NAP, duplicates, etc.)

    Thanks

    Hi Lloyd. This might be helpful:

    Doesn't get into how to use MozLocal, Yext, or BrightLocal (because if you follow the process, they are unnecessary), but it should provide some valuable tips for the person in your office that is working on this.

    Thanks Darren. That's a very helpful slidedeck. And another great use - showing clients the extent of the work involved and why it's both a valuable and not inexpensive process.

    Interesting that you didn't even include the Whitespark Local Citation Finder tool in this process. Was that trying to not self-promote or do you think that using LCF is not as helpful in this particular process (obviously a fantastic tool for finding citations).

    Again, thanks.

    Re: Best Options For Using Available Tools For Citation Audit

    The local citation finder can definitely be used for citation audits, but for this presentation, I chose to use the Link Prospector to gather data. We have some new features coming to the LCF that will make audits much easier.

    If you'd like some self promotion, this service might be of interest.

    I love NAP Hunter for audits (N.A.P. Hunter Lite - Local SEO Guide)

    It's led me to many "VOILA" moments.

    I take each of the discrepancies and run them through on their own to make sure aggregators haven't copied the incorrect information as well. It downloads into a spreadsheet, so you can so the client all the references to their business out there that it finds.
