  • What are Local Search Citations?

    No, Local Search Citations are not quotations from or a reference to a book or author.

    Citations instead are directory type web pages that have your company information listed on them.  Google, Bing & Yahoo crawl these directories when they are searching the web for new content and when they find information that matches your business name, address and phone number (NAP), the search engines consider those to be citations and will sometimes add that info to the bottom of your Google Places page or Yahoo Local page.

    The more Local Search Citations that can be found for your business, the more relevant you appear to Google’s algorithm.   So you want to have as many citations for your business as possible and you want each listing to match up exactly to your Google Places page according to your NAP (Name, Address, Phone).

    Adding a listing to these online directories can be very time consuming; however, it is highly recommended because you will have more relevance in the search engines algorithms.  Click here for our Top 25 recommended Local Search Citation Directories!
