What is a Citation?

Think of citations as a business listing in a Yellow Pages book. In the internet, there are multiple brands of these “books,” all with their own traffic and audiences. You need to make sure that your business is listed in all of these sites and accurately maintained. In many instances, your listing can be altered by someone else, so you need to check these regularly.

Citations contain a business name, address, phone number, services you offer, and website in this combination on the internet. Google and Bing crawls for these citations and attributes these listings to you. In turn, it helps build up traffic and is a factor to increasing your rank.

Outrank The Competition

In a competitive market, check which citations are good for your specific industry. Use relevant search terms on Google to see who ranks highest among your competition. Note all the websites that list other businesses and find your way into generating your own citations in those areas as well.
