Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 12, 2015
“At Fannit, part of our Local 7-Pack service is to provide high quality citations that Google views as positive signals that your business is legitimate and worthy of ranking,” Fannit explains in their recently released article on why local citations are a powerful SEO strategy.
For businesses that service a specific local area, being listed in the ‘local 7-pack’ is an important achievement. The ‘local 7 pack’ is a local listing on Google, that shows results within the consumer’s local area. The ‘7-pack’ is the list of the top 7 businesses that have the most, and best, local citations and are associated with the keyword the searcher is using.
In order to rank highly in this listing, however, Fannit explains that a business will need local citations (entries of their company’s name, address, and phone number) on numerous, relevant listings and websites.
In the article, they explain the importance of local citations, saying, “If all other factors were equal between two competing businesses, but one had more citations, it would almost certainly rank higher than the other business with fewer citations.”
But the question still remains, how would a business acquire these citations? The article notes that business owners or marketing managers can either work at building the citations themselves, or they can hire an internet marketing firm, like Fannit.com, to establish listings for them.
