Citation Intel

Places Scout’s powerful citation analysis capability gives you a complete picture of both your citations and your competitor’s.

Each citation found is verified for NAP accuracy and consistency.

Powerful Citation Finder

Places Scout’s advanced citation finding algorithm performs an in-depth search to locate all of your potential citation sources, ensuring that no citation gets lost.

Individual Citation Verification

Places Scout’s Citation Finder algorithm performs citation verification on each potential citation source found by visiting each site and verifying that it is actually a true citation for the given business – meaning that the content on citing website actually contains the business’ name, address, and phone number.

This gives you a true count of the actual citation sources for your client as seen by the eyes of Google Citation sources returned for each result are segmented between those that are verified and those that at least one mention of the business was found on Places Scout tells you whether the business’ name, address, phone number, and/or website URL were found on each citing website in an easy to read yes / no format

This helps you identify potential citation sources that have incorrect business data (wrong address, phone number, etc) so that you can work on fixing this information on these sites. Fixing incorrect citation information is important so that Google picks it up as a citation source for your business
