Problems with local business listings and citations are an everyday thing. Both business owners in DIY mode and local seo consultants alike have lost a lot of hair in the past few years trying to fix the usual issues.
We all know the internet isn’t perfect and websites are going to have problems. Every now and then you’ve reached the end of your patience (and hair) and need to communicate with someone who can “git r done.” At this point I like to get a human on the phone, but this isn’t always an option (have you ever tried to talk to someone at Yahoo Local?).
Enter social media. Twitter, specifically.
Consumers have adapted to the times. Customer service problems are being handled on social media much more often. I’ve had success numerous times reaching out to a business via Twitter. With that in mind, we share with you the Twitter handles of some of the top local citation sources. Perhaps they’ll be helpful.
I can’t vouch for all of these. If you have any corrections, additions or comments, please let me know. And by all means, if you’ve had an experience with any of these via Twitter, please share.
***UPDATE: Thanks to Max Minzer for a fresh test. The ones marked “active” have responded. Perhaps the others will catch on.
