    I keep seeing things like this, but it feels a little spammy. I definitely see the value of quickly indexing your citations, though.

    Anyone have experience or even just a "take" on this kind of tactic?

    I'd be willing to put them through a test... if all I did for a local site was to build citations and for another location of the same company, build citations and get them indexed by the above tool... could see if it makes a difference in ranking in the local pack according to Bright Local?

    I might be missing something. Why does it look spammy?

    All I can see is something that looks like Moz Local but for less?

    Unless I'm misunderstanding this service, it's designed to get citations indexed. If it's a citation builder like bright local, yext, whitespark, etc...different story.

    I like to see quick results from my work, and so the pitch I often get for building links to citations is appealing. In theory, it'll index your citations with Google in record-breaking time. Therefore, allowing you to more quickly see (and isolate) the impact citations have had on your SEO.

    Such is the appeal of these services, but GSA, SENuke, and tools of the like, are clearly spammy. Not trying to be self righteous but I try to avoid black hat and spammy techniques because I think their days are limited.

    But, you also have to be pragmatic. Rand from Moz used to get outranked by black-hatters.

    Re: Anyone used Web 2.0 Ranker Citation Submission Service?

    It looks promising, but it's really not that much cheaper than Moz for what you get. In the US, it's $55 for four aggregators. Looks like only one for $75 in Canada. With Moz, it's $99 for those aggregators plus several more higher authority directories - which (I would think) means faster results overall.

    I'm also a little leary of the relationship they actually have with the aggregators. They are an API submission service, which isn't quite the same as being a data partner like Moz or BrightLocal.

    I guess the only way to know for sure is to test it. It could be really useful for new businesses just starting out with a new NAP, or for those whose budget really doesn't allow for that extra $40 a year.

    I'm interested because Moz is very strict about how much they allow you to work with your data. Honestly, sometimes it feels like its not even your data. For example, we've added call tracking numbers to Google My Business pages and Moz Local automatically switched the Moz Local listings to the tracking number. Kind of a nuisance but the biggest issue is they will not allow you to manually change it back. Support will tell you that it has to remain that way. Which is kind of ridiculous to me. So we've moved away from Moz Local for our clients that do use call tracking and are exploring other options.

    I don't think being a "data partner" is any different in specs from using the API. I would imagine these guys have the same access to the API that Moz Local does. And I don't think they get any special access to make the changes quicker.

    But I could be wrong.

    Years ago, I hired this company for some editorial link building. I was extremely unimpressed. I'll spare you the details, but let's just say I'd look in another direction before considering this company.

    These aggregators look like a great price compared to the bigger names (such as Yext, which now has an option for aggregators). I think price is their thing. If you have budget restrictions, they might be the ones for you. But my clients pay me for a 99%tile level of quality and results. There is no room for experimenting with people who have proven to be unreliable in the past.

    I'm pleased with the responsiveness of my rep at Yext. I'm not 100% sure if I'll be using Yext in a year, but for now they seem to be taking their role in my SEO strategy seriously. There are a lot of options out there for citations.
