What are citations?
Citations are mainly from online directories that reference a business’ Name, Address and Phone number (NAP). Many online directories also offer the opportunities to add additional information such as a link to your website, social profiles, business services etc. Citations are a key ranking factor and great for local search.
Can I get citation links from sites other than directories?
Yes – in fact the most important citations to have are Google My Business, Bing Places and Facebook Business Page – all are directory/social profile hybrids that can benefit your business in more ways than just being a citation.
Consistency across citations is key!
Citations can become very messy and a nightmare to clean up if a) you don’t make a note of the your citations and b) they display inconsistencies in the information. It is vitally important to get the Name, Address and Phone number correct across all citations and and links to your website work.
