What are Citations?
Local citation building is the process of getting your business information listed on local and national business listing websites. A local citations is made any time the NAP (name, address and phone number) of a local business is mentioned on a website. These websites can be local directories, national directories, web apps or social media platforms.
Local business citations help your potential customers find out about your business and they are also one of the most important local SEO services as each local citation is used as a ranking factor by Google and the other search engines. Building Citations is only effective if the NAP is used consistently across all directories. Each mention of your business name, address and phone number must be spelled and formatted the same way on each of the citation sources.
