My Go-To Local Business Listing Software
Comments: Yext has made it easy for us to generate income from a very necessary action that small businesses and big businesses alike absolutely need done. We get results in just hours where some other listing software can take days to update listings.
We've seen the best results for our clients when using Yext to update/correct their business listing across the web. It's an easy to use interface that helps you keep on top of all listings and finds the issues for you. This has saved us countless hours of manual searches.
The cost makes it a bit difficult to sign up some clients that do not have a big budget.

Thank you for leaving your review, Giovanni. We appreciate the kind words and are glad to hear that your clients are finding success with our services.
Effective and Easy to Use
Comments: Overall I like their service. Price is kind of high, but their service is worth it. Their support is really great and responsive too
It is easy to add locations, citations are built VERY quickly, customization abilities for each location are really nice too
Kind of expensive - and your citations revert back when you stop your subscription (but I get that part)

Does a lot good but more for beginners
Comments: Their customer support is great. They have positives. Just not the best for someone like me. I used them because my client had them already and was nice to learn because a lot of people like them. I just feel like they could do more to be top tier in their niche.
I can see how this software is useful for people who are beginners in local SEO or business owners who want to streamline the process.
It isn't very in depth. Bright local is better in every way outside of maybe keyword research which i use neither for.
No SEO benefit
Comments: I purchased Yext for local SEO. After two years I determined that Yext did not help rankings in Google for any type of search.
Yext does update its network of web directories quickly. But, you don't want to use Yext to manage important directories like Google, Apple, Bing, Facebook, Foursquare, and Yelp because these popular websites should be managed directly. Yext can be used to update low-value web directories like YP, 123local, Citysearch, CitySpark, CitySquares, and dozens of other little-known and used directories.
Yext does not help SEO, specifically ranking in Google. I've tested Yext extensively over 2 separate trials with each trial lasting two years. On tests with lawyers and local home services businesses that I used Yext did not show any noticeable improvement in ranking in Google.

588% Increase in Listings Reach
Comments: With Yext, we saw a 288% increase in Google Search queries, a 320% increase in Google Customer Actions, and a 588% increase in listings reach.
Before Yext, our listing distribution software took weeks to update directories. Now with Yext, I can make big changes within hours. Its duplicate suppression is powerful, its analytics tools are extremely useful, and their customer support is second to none.
There is troubleshooting with every product you use. There have been a few issues in our account with connections and categories, but the Yext team was quick to help us find a solution. It's
