How much does Citation Builder cost?

Helen Barnes -


Citation Builder is a pay-as-you-use service which incurs separate charges depending on what types of submissions are purchased:

Manual ('by-hand') Submissions

Cost is $3 per site updated or submitted to.

Customers can bulk-buy Citation Builder credits for US$2 per credit (1 credit = 1 site submitted to) = 33% saving

Credits can be purchased in blocks of 500, 1000, and 2000 credits.

Credits can be used on multiple campaigns for many locations/clients. Credits do not expire and can be used at any time.

Duplicate Removal

Duplicate Removal is an 'add on' service that customers can purchase as part of manual submissions. 

This addon is 20% of manual submission costs.

Example campaign costs:

  • 25 Manual submissions $75
  • 20% for Duplicate Remove: $15
  • Total cost: $90

Data Aggregator Submissions

Customers can purchase one, some of all of the Data Aggregators we submit to:

  • Factual - US$5 per submission
  • Acxiom - US$25 per submission
  • Infogroup - US$25 per submission
  • Neustar - US$25 per submission

All four Data Aggregators - US$60 per submission (save 25%)
