What is it?
Local SEO features a Citations page, allowing you to show clients proof of performance and citation growth. For more information on what citations are, how Vendasta determines a citation, and why they are important, please review this article: Citations: Getting Started
Why is it important?
Any instance where the name, address, or phone number (NAP) of a business is mentioned online creates a citation. Every new citation created enhances local online visibility and boosts ranking on search engines like Google and Bing. With Local SEO now showcasing citations, your clients can now watch as their total number of citations grows the longer they have this product activated.
How does it work?
This feature is currently available to accounts with Listings Sync Pro or Listings Distribution activated. The citations page will be turned on by default. Should you choose to not allow this feature, you will need to configure the page in Partner Center to remove access for your clients.
Head to Partner Center > Administration in the left panel. Select Customize.
Click on Vendasta Product Settings and then click the pencil icon next to Local SEO.
Here you will deselect the checkbox for the "Show 'Citations' Tab." This will remove access to the page.
Who has access to it?
All channel partners will have access to the Citations page for clients with Listing Distribution or Listing Sync Pro activated.
