What is Citation Audit:
Citation audit is a careful analysis of top directory sites for an inventory of business existing citations. After which, a business must fix inconsistencies, remove duplicates and ultimately claim their listings. Citation audit is also used in completing incomplete citations (like profiles, photos, and more.) on these directories.
The importance of citation audit for businesses cannot be over-emphasized. According to a survey recently conducted by Moz, citations and external location signals are the 4th most important ranking factor for your local business.
What is NAP format? : –
NAP stands for Business Name, Address, and Phone Number. If your business is listed in these directories but not in the NAP format, you have done equivalent to nothing. Google and other search engines want to give you credit for having your NAP (in the right order) on other websites. This is because it serves as a positive rating for you.
People also think they only need to update their Google ‘My Business’ listing, which is absolutely wrong. As a matter of fact, It is seriously harming your ranking on search engines. This is because new erroneous data are constantly fed into Google from other sources thereby creating bigger problems along the line.
Some also think “DOING NOTHING” would help their ranking. This is a big NO. Just because you did not actually fill in any data, doesn’t mean there is no bad/wrong data. in fact, there are many ways wrong data can be fed into Google and other search engines. Asking yourself these basic questions could help:
- Have you ever moved physical business locations?
- Do you have different trade names or business name variations?
- Is your physical business location the same as the legal business paperwork with the state and federal government?
- Do you use tracking phone numbers?
- Did someone in your organization set up the listings without knowledge of NAP consistency? Just to mention a few.
If your answer to one of these questions is a YES, then there is a 99% probability that you have wrong data inputted into Google and other search engines, which is obviously negatively affecting your rankings on search engines.
