I started using Whitespark's Citation Service when it was first introduced and haven't questioned that decision since.

How We Build Citations
Building citations for local SEO is a time-consuming process. Years of experience have taught us the tricks of the trade. We follow a careful process with each citation building project.
Review the supplied information
We always check if the provided information is accurate and complete. If we find any inconsistencies between the information you supplied and what’s online, we’ll get in touch to sort it out. We ask for as many details as possible, because complete and comprehensive listings will improve your local rankings.
Check for existing citations
First, we identify your existing citations with the Local Citation Finder. Then — as we’re building citations — we check each site individually to ensure we never create duplicate listings, and to look for any NAP inconsistencies.
Create a local citations list
After we get a list of your existing citations, we prepare a list of new citation opportunities using our huge database of business listing sites. We start with the highest quality sources and work our way down the list. If you already have a listing in a high priority source, we will check if it is up-to-date and if it is not, we will update it in the “Build Citations!” phase. See this post for more information on how we select and prioritize citation sources.
We list your business on the citation sources BY HAND and we make sure to include as much information as possible. The more complete and comprehensive the citations are, the more they benefit your local rankings.
Send you a report
Once we have completed the job, we'll send you a detailed report with a list of URLs to all of the listings we created, the status of each listing (approved, pending, already existed), usernames and passwords for the sites, and any comments. This report is unbranded so SEO agencies can simply pass them on to their clients without modifications. Your work will be completed and you’ll have your report within three weeks of placing your order.
