Local Citation List
We compiled this local citation list to help you get a leg up on your competition. Local citations are valuable for local SEO. In fact, local search expert David Mihm says citations account for 25% of his top 20 local search ranking factors.
Reviews + Citations
Just as it is with reviews, more citations is better as long as they’re on high-quality sites. They should also be either relevant to your industry, or relevant to your physical location.
If you’re in a niche business like plumbing, physical therapy, or electrical work, citations are particularly valuable for your local SEO efforts. You need citations to stay visible in the search engine results pages. Since many businesses don’t even bother with them, use them to your advantage.
When you’re building citations, it’s easy to list yourself on spam sites and irrelevant directories because “more is better.” We compiled this list to circumvent that.
We wanted to deliver local citation sites that are both safe and effective. This is a living list, and we’ll add more to it as time goes on. And if you have any to add, please let us know!
Need a refresher?
A citation is defined as any listing on a website that includes any combination of your business name, address, phone number, and other relevant information.
Citations let search engines know where you’re based and which community you’re part of. If they’re built correctly, they also let search engines know your industry and specialty.
The three most important factors for local citations are:
- Industry relevance
- Local relevancy
- Domain Authority
