What is local citations

In simple SEO terms a Local Citation is simply where your company is mentioned on other websites and places found on the Internet. Local citations are used heavily in helping you to rank in local search results.

Local Citations are defined as mentions of your business name and address on other webpages—even if there is no link to your website. An example of a citation might be an online directory where your business is listed, but not linked to. Citations can also be found on local chamber of commerce pages, or on a local business association page that includes your business information, even if they are not linking at all to your website.

Local Citations are a key component of the ranking algorithms in Google and Bing. Other factors being equal, businesses with a greater number of citations will probably rank higher than businesses with fewer citations.

Local Citations from well-established and well-indexed portals help increase the degree of certainty the search engines have about your business’s contact information and categorization. To paraphrase former Arizona Cardinals’ coach Dennis Green, citations help search engines confirm that businesses “are who we thought they were!”

Our Process

Review the supplied information

We always check if the provided information is accurate and complete. If we find any inconsistencies between the information you supplied and what’s online, we’ll get in touch to sort it out. We ask for as many details as possible, because complete and comprehensive listings will improve your local rankings.

Check for existing citations

First, we identify your existing citations with the Local Citation Finder. Then — as we’re building citations — we check each site individually to ensure we never create duplicate listings, and to look for any NAP inconsistencies.

Create a local citations list

After we get a list of your existing citations, we prepare a list of new citation opportunities using our huge database of business listing sites. We start with the highest quality sources and work our way down the list. If you already have a listing in a high priority source, we will check if it is up-to-date and if it is not, we will update it in the “Build Citations!” phase. See this post for more information on how we select and prioritize citation sources.

Build citations!

We list your business on the citation sources BY HAND and we make sure to include as much information as possible. The more complete and comprehensive the citations are, the more they benefit your local rankings.

Send you a report

Once we have completed the job, we’ll send you a detailed report with a list of URLs to all of the listings we created, the status of each listing (approved, pending, already existed), usernames and passwords for the sites, and any comments. This report is unbranded so SEO agencies can simply pass them on to their clients without modifications. Your work will be completed and you’ll have your report within three weeks of placing your order.
