Getting your clients to leave reviews on your business listings is an important part of local SEO. Online reviews work as personal recommendations for people searching for services online. Without online reviews, your agency's online visibility is limited, which wastes key agency marketing opportunities.

Make the review process as easy as possible for your clients, and you'll get more reviews. If the process is too difficult or involved, people will not leave a review at all. Many websites, like the list below, make it possible to leave reviews using Facebook.

1. BBB
2. BizyHood
3. Citysearch
4. Ezlocal.com
5. Foursquare
6. InsiderPages
7. SuperPages
8. Yellowbot
9. YellowPages
10. Zillow
11. Facebook (Getting reviews on Facebook is very important!)

When leaving reviews on these websites, the reviewer will not have to go through the typical steps of creating an account, entering a name and email address, checking the email to verify the new account and logging in with the username and password. Instead, they will only have to log in to their Facebook account on a desktop computer. Simple and easy.

As an agency, you will need to have an active business listing on each website for your clients to leave reviews. If you don't have a business listing, create one as soon as possible. Creating a basic listing should only take a few minutes on your part but will help your agency reap the benefits.
