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
This one-two combo makes for the most compact, authoritative local ranking service you’ll find anywhere online…
THE BIG 3 DATA AGGREGATORS
You may have seen this infographic put together by GetListed.org
. It shows first-hand the kind of power the large data aggregators have over all other citation sites.
We can submit to the 3 most influential data aggregators. Cumulatively these 3 sites feed over 23 other major sites like Google Maps, AOL Local, Apple / Siri, and others you’ve heard of. Through testing some of these agreggators, I’ve found that big ones like Infogroup will even create a Google Places listing (among many other sites) for you, if one doesn’t exist already.
Here’s the shortlist of the big data aggregators we submit to and a little bit of info about each one:
Infogroup – This big dog powers the likes of Google Maps, Mapquest, Bing Local, Yahoo Local, TomTom, AOL Local, and the list goes on.
Out of all 3, this is the single most powerful local data aggregator.
I have had Google Places pages created automatically after submission to Infogroup.
A big data company, you can even use their data in Facebook Ad targeting. They power major sites like Yelp, Yellowpages, Superpages, Local.com
, Apple, and more.
Factual – Compared to the above 2 Factual is a smaller player but still has an inside feed directly to Apple, Bing, TripAdvisor, and others.
If your business information is incorrect at any of these 3 major providers, it may override what the major search engines have in their own database. And if you’re not included in the databases of these major providers, you might not be able to rank as easily in Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
Important Note: Localeze is one big data provider that is missing and we have had to exclude it because they charge $297 per year for listing with them. However, what you get with Infogroup, Acxiom, and Factual combined has more reach than Localeze. Plus, at just 10% of the cost through us without a yearly subscription this service right here is a no-brainer.
