How is each submission handled?

Mathew Coghlan -


Our submissions are all done manually by our dedicated citations team who handle all campaigns. We have a very tried & tested approach to submissions and deep knowledge of the directories and citation sites we use.

Below are the key steps we take for each campaign:

  1. Identify appropriate citations for your business, we do this by filtering our citation database using your ‘Location’ and ‘Business Category’ to return appropriate citation opportunities, then we look to see where you’re already listed online
  2. Create unique campaign email account for verifications
  3. Check to see if your business is already listed on a directory
  4. Submit business details to directory
  5. Click link in verification email to complete submission
  6. Capture details in report & grab profile URL if listing is created instantly
  7. Upload campaign report to your BrightLocal admin console
  8. Provide customer with details of email account(s) & passwords used
