Brightlocal was founded in 2008 by Ed Eliot &
Myles Anderson. We started out as a local SEO agency providing local optimization services to a whole range of different business types and locations. Having both worked in the corporate world we relished the chance to use our extensive knowledge to help local businesses launch &
grow through effective use of SEO.
However, we soon ran into issues as we tried to grow the business and take on more customers. We felt swamped by the scale of daily tasks facing our team. We needed to automate repetitive tasks such as running SEO audits, tracking client performance, identifying citations and submitting to local directories. We looked around to find some specialist tools to help us but we couldn’t find any.
Sure there were lots of general SEO tools but none which focused on the needs of local businesses & local SEO agencies.
