The market for Local SEO Tools (and SEO tools in general) is just as fragmented and confusing as the rest of the Local Search Marketing industry.  I use this space to keep track of what’s out there. Would love your feedback on any of these in the comments.

Yext PowerListings (affiliate link)
Yext Powerlistings can automatically update your business’ information across 50+ of the top local search sites out there including Yelp, Yahoo Local, SuperPages and more.  They also now do review monitoring & allow you to update Facebook, LinkedIN & Google+ from Yext’s dashboard.  It’s not free but the amount of time it can save you is huge.  Check it out here.

Here’s their fancy graphic showing where they send their data:

Full Disclosure: I get paid every time someone buys a Powerlisting via that link.  It’s not much, but it helps keep the lights on at the blog – and I do think it’s a great service. Ok, end of shill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many of these tools do more than their categorization suggests. Like I said, confusing.
