Digital marketing is getting more challenging with each passing day, and it is getting tougher for Australian Businesses to stay ahead of the market and earn bigger profits. Many businesses throughout Australia are investing in a variety of online marketing channels,with the aim of getting their target audience to visit their website and to then convert leads successfully.
Local SEO is one of the most credible, ethical techniques used by SEO companies and businesses alike. It enables SMB’s to gain better visibility in Google Maps and usually ensures that they appear on the first page of Google, when local search queries related to their keywords are performed.
Google Local is a perfect vehicle for local businesses in any country or city, as it allows businesses small, medium or corporate to get targeted and relevant traffic, resulting in quality lead generation, high conversions and brand awareness.This then translates into growth and profitability for your business and assures your success.
In a recent SEO Survey, at Search Engine Land, Local Search (SEO) has over 60% more effectiveness for generating leads/customers.
Let’s get back to our topic; I won’t go into details about basic Local SEO guidelines and how to implement these. If Local SEO is of interest to you, then you may like to read this post (How to do local SEO for your website in 5 Minutes) by Andrew Shotland.
I will assume that you are well versed in Local SEO, and know how to get your business listing submitted on basic Local citations like Google Maps.
However, if you have an Australian business, and are getting your head around the time consuming task of researching and submitting local listings to various other local websites including Yellow Pages and other Data Aggregators, then you have come to the right post on this website.
In my extensive research, I found heaps of detailed posts about Local Citations for businesses based in United States and United Kingdom, but there was a lack of a single comprehensive resource for Local Citations for Australian businesses.
This motivated me to compile a list that would be an Ultimate resource for Local Citations for Australian business. I would like to share this list with you so that you too can benefit from our research.
My goal in creating this post is so it can be used as a one-stop resource that contains the most recent and updated Local Citations that any Australian business, SEO companies, SEO Consultants can benefit from.
I would love to hear your feedback and experience with your Local Citation Submissions.Also, let me know if you find some interesting niche local citations that are missing from the list.
