No, we’re not talking about parking tickets! Citations are listings of your business on various directories and sites around the Web. They may or may not include a link to your website. Some prime examples are YellowPages (yp.com), Yelp.com, Angies List, etc.
As I discussed in my post on name, address and phone number (NAP), consistency in this data across many citation sources can help improve your rankings in Google local search results. That’s not all there is to dominating local search rankings, but it’s a good start.
Here are some citation resources that may come in handy:
- The best local citations sources by category
- The best local citation sources by city (while smaller cities aren’t included you can still get a good idea of the ones for your region)
