MCKINNEY, TX, June 05, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Advice Local, a local business citation submission service, announced a milestone this week of reaching 1,000,000 citation submissions. Since its inception in 2009, Advice Local has helped over 27,000 local businesses gain optimal local visibility in the most popular search engines including Google, Bing, and Yahoo. As a product of Advice Interactive Group, LLC, a Dallas-based interactive marketing agency, Advice Local provides services including local reporting, citation discovery of niche and geo-specific citation sources, video optimization, social media creation and optimization, and manual submission for the highest authority directories and citation sources worldwide.
According to Advice Local associates, what separates Advice Local from similar entities such as Yext, Universal Business Listing, or Whitespark, is that each local business's information is hand-submitted to every directory without shortcuts, data feeds or software submissions. This eliminates the impersonality of automatic optimization and allows for tailor-made business profiles across the most credible and highest authority citation sources for that industry.
Advice Local uses local search engine optimization (SEO) techniques to help boost local search visibility and help businesses be found by their target audience online. The goal of Advice Local's services is to enable local businesses to show up in search engines for queries that have local intent. This can be done through the identification, submission, and optimization of high authority citation sources such as Google+ Local, Yelp, and Angie's List.
The process of submitting to Advice Local is simple, as clients only have to enter their business data once. From there, the Advice Local team hand submits your business to qualified directories and niche/geo citation sources specific to their business, optimizing everything from the clients' photos and videos to their blogs and other digital assets like their social media properties.
Businesses benefit from manual directory submissions in a myriad of ways including fast completion, robust listings, consistent NAP data and comprehensive completion reports via the Advice Local Completion Report.
"With the sheer number of online local business directories expanding almost daily, it makes it tough to know which searchable directory is the best place to list a business," explains one Advice Local senior company associate. "That's where our Internet marketing and Search Engine Optimization specialists come in handy...we've already done in-depth local search research so our clients don't have to. Our team has identified the top sites in which to list local businesses, making sure our clients' businesses are listed just about anywhere and everywhere people are looking for products and services."
Further, Advice Local updates its local search products regularly to offer the most accurate selection of directories to fit clients' businesses while enabling them to increase their local visibility on search engines, local online directories, social media sites, and 411 directories.
A Advice Local associate comments, "We're very excited to reach one million citation submissions and look forward to expanding our local search technology--this is just the beginning."
