Generate informative local SEO reports that actually matter

Demonstrate the impact of your hard work with local SEO reporting that clearly shows what’s what

Local SEO reporting is often overlooked by small businesses that simply don’t have the time or resources to be producing charts and tables that probably won’t even be read. But when it comes to local SEO, data matters, and making it as simple as possible to gather and share the important figures can really make or break your chances of success. With this in mind, Semrush developed local SEO reporting tools that don't require any monotonous cutting and pasting from various sources, giving you valuable local SEO reports in just a few clicks.

Complete local SEO audit

Before you can start tracking your progress with local SEO reports, you need a clear understanding of where you stand.
Good local SEO tools quickly bring up your citation profile so you can see how well your business details have been distributed across the web, including the number of directory listings and any errors in your citations, as well as your average review rating and total reviews.
And you needn’t make any commitments to a tool to get started. Semrush’s Listing Management tool allows up to five free local SEO audits per day (per location), so you can get this first step ticked off your list today.

“Spy” on the competition

Building local reviews is a cornerstone of a strong local SEO strategy, but how can you set targets for review generation if you can’t quickly see what your competitors are up to?
Instead of trawling through every platform your competitors might have reviews on, use Semrush’s Listing Management to gauge the competition’s review profile.
Because while the quality of your reviews is important, quantity also matters (according to a Semrush local SEO study ), so knowing how your competitors stack up can help you set targets for your own reviews.
