    Citation Count - how do you get the "A"?

    I'd like to get the groups thoughts, but, what do you think constitutes an "A" grade in local citaitons. . . what number of correct citations do you think is "good enough"?

    I'm using Brightlocal for my citation count, and I do a pretty good job of getting what they consider the top citations all done, and then I have a few hyperlocal ones I throw in there. . . I'm wondering what would be a good benchmark for saying "I think that the local citations are boosting the site" or "we have done what we could". When I have gotten 90% of the value from local citations?

    Re: Citation Count - how do you get the "A"?

    That depends on which listings you've squared away. As you know, some matter more than others.

    If you've taken care of most of the listings I mentioned here...

    (And you've got all the big ones, like YP and Yelp and the data-aggregators.)

    ...and if on top of those you've gotten 5-10 industry-specific listings, I'd give you an "A."
