Big Citations is the big brother of our Hyper-Local Citations service. Big Citations focuses on a handful of must-have citations and big data aggregators, perfect for new sites or businesses who haven't built many citations yet.
This service is best thought of as a mix between a Getlisted.org service and a Universal Business Listing alternative.
We combine submission to the big data aggregators that UBL submits to like Infogroup and Acxiom as well as creation of business listings on the top 20 best business listing sites, most are what GetListed.org reports.
This one-two combo makes for the most compact, authoritative local ranking service you'll find anywhere online... all at a price affordable enough to resell.

According to data from GetListed.org and WhiteSpark (see the Best Sources for Local Citations by City) the list below makes up some of the most important business links and citations a business can get online. We verify that the business is listed on these sites below and if needed, we create a listing for you.
I've been testing citations since 2012, here's some of my findings.
If your local site is already on the map for some of its important keywords (2nd, 3rd, 4th page), chances are high that citations will have a noticeable affect on your SERPs.
Thin affiliate sites.
Sites or businesses that don't have a physical address. You can rank for a while with a fake address but it's not a long-term strategy.
It works very well for local businesses trying to rank locally
I did a case study in 2012 (Testing the Ranking Effects of Citations on Local Business Websites), with an update at the bottom of the same article in 2013 (How Many Citations Do You Really Need to Front-Page a Local Business?) where I shared a few graph like these:
Here's also a couple results even more recently from 2014 - a local roofing and a repair keyword.
If we come across listings that you already have, we'll add them to the report and complete a citation somewhere else. You are guaranteed at least 20 new citations from this service + submission to the big 3 data agreggators if it's needed.
We will consolidate the work from this report into the Master List from your Hyper-Local Citations order(s).
All you need is a business name, address, phone number, and a URL.
Yep, while many of the sites on our list are for USA only, we can easily pull those out and replace with something else if you're ordering for a biz outside of the US.
Big Citations is what we use to get the main authority citations and data aggregators out of the way.
Hyper Local Citations is what we use to get the remaining 300 or so citations done, along with any city or niche specific citation sites completed.
A citation is technically an occurrence of the businesses name, address, and phone. Without those items we can’t do citations, but you’d be looking at organic linking instead (Social Foundations, Budget Tier 1s, etc…)

The way franchises do it is they create a separate sub-page within the main site for each location. This sub-page should contain all the essentials for local ranking: the address, phone number, (ideally) a google maps embedded, content relevant to the area, and (ideally) a strong CTA.
There's a quick way to find out. Swing on over to GetListed.org and drop the business info to run a quick check. Their % score will give you a good idea on how visible the business is with major citation sources.
