What Are Local Citations?

A local citation is any mention of your business on the web; it is any combination of your company name, phone number, address, zip or postal code, and website address. Citations in SEO are a key factor in improving your local search results.

Specifically defined, local citations are a “mention” of your business name. Think of local citations like a hundred different “yellow pages” listing your business.

Citations are important because they add visibility and credibility indicators to your business.

A good citation can be any combination of your business phone, address, zip code or website url.
