You can check or uncheck the platforms you would like to post your message to by clicking on the icons representing the social media on the SnapSync network. In the post above you will see that I have chosen all of the Social Media which our sample business is synced with. The ‘f’ represents Facebook, the ‘g+’ represents Google + and the ‘w’ represents the Shine Online Webpage. To uncheck a platform, simply click on the icon, it will grey out and your post will not be published on that platform.

As the largest and most successful Social Media platform, Facebook is a great way to reach people around your business.

These days it’s not enough just to post status updates because with changes to the Facebook newsfeed you might only be reaching 7-10% of your followers. For advertising to be effective it is important that people see your message frequently enough so they remember it.

WHY DO CITATIONS MATTER TO YOUR BUSINESS IN 2016?

What is a Citation? A Citation is the mention of your Business anywhere on the Web predominantly Name, Address and Telephone or (NAP) for short, with or without a link back to your website.

Google-LogoWhy is this Important? Citations are one of Main Ranking Elements that Google will use when deciding where it Ranks your Business in the Search Results. For example, if you have two slightly different version of your Name, Address, Phone Number search engines could view this as two separate companies which essentially halves your web presence. As you can imagine, if there are 3 or 4 versions of this info on the web, the problem gets worse and worse.

Consistency is Key! To gain extra SEO value for your Business from Citations it is important to display the same Name, Address and Telephone you use on your Website or wherever you are Listed Online.
Citations do not require a link back to your site in order for your Business to gain SEO juice but if there is differences in how your Name, Address and Telephone is displayed on the Web then Google will not be able to attribute the SEO value to the right NAP.

myflowershop citation exampleHere’s an Example … Let say you are Florist in Dublin with two Listings – one on Directory A, and another on Directory B.

To a user this is accurate as it correctly identifies your Business but to a Google Bot it is not! On Directory A your Business Name is actually your Web Address but is not clickable and also the phone number on Directory B is different. Google would not be able identify that these Two Listings relate to the same Business.

Quality over Quantity! The more High Value Sites that you List your Business on the more people will see it and contact you. For example Google would consider a Listing on Established Directory sites like GoldenPages.ie more valuable than a Listing on Random Website used to build links.
