Checking whether a business is listed on the top citation sites can be a time-intensive task.
But with 80% of consumers losing trust in local businesses if they spot inconsistent business names, addresses, and phone numbers online, accurate business listings can be make or break for many customers.
At BrightLocal, our mission is to make local marketing simple for our customers – including making citations even more manageable.
Say Hello to Our Newest Free Local SEO Tool!
The Local Listings Health Scanner allows you to perform a completely free scan across 15 of the most powerful business listing sites.
Within just a few minutes, the tool will uncover your Listing Health Score, based on the proportion of correct listings you have across the top sites – meaning you can start taking action quickly, and without barriers.
As well as your Score, you’ll be shown a Listing Accuracy Breakdown, so you can easily see the name, address, and phone number inconsistencies that could be costing you customers.
From here, if you’d like some help in improving your Listing Health Score, you can quick-access our Citation Builder service where our team of dedicated experts can claim and clean up your listings across a broad range of niche, local, and national sites. Just click Add or Fix to start your journey.
The Nitty Gritty
It is currently only possible to use the Local Listings Health Scanner to search for businesses in the USA, UK, Canada, and Australia. The business listing sites differ per country based on which sites are most important to that country.
During the Local Listings Health Scanner launch, we’ve opened up this free tool to allow you to check your or your customers’ Listing Health Scores on an unlimited basis. However, please note that we will be limiting free daily scans in the near future to 3 free daily uses for people that don’t use BrightLocal, and 10 for BrightLocal customers.
So what are you waiting for?
We hope the Local Listings Health Scanner proves useful for improving the health of your local business listings. Check out our other free local SEO tools for more help in making local marketing simple!
