Why Citations Are Important to Rank in Local Maps

Citations are important and crucial in order to help you with your local SEO and local rankings online. These listings (aka citations) play an important role in your online marketing. Being listed on many major citations help your business in several ways:

  1. Gain authoritative backlinks
  2. Get traffic from these citation sources
  3. Help you rank in the major search engine Maps (Google Places, Bing Maps, Yahoo Maps)
  4. Help you get more customers, directly from the listing and indirectly from Maps Rankings

You may know how to find these citations and you may have built some of them on your own, but you need to make sure they are optimized well and include all available elements they allow. It is also important to keep adding new citations and know how many citations you need to stay ahead of your competitors. You also want to find niche related listings (which are more powerful as they are niche related) and hyper local citations. Hyper local citations are location specific to your area. For example in Arizona we have a local directory called Local First Arizona, which is considered a hyper local directory and these can be a very powerful listing source.

We mainly provide services in the US so most of our listings/citations are going to be focused on US businesses. Since online marketing changes and evolves, we will try to keep this list updated and ongoing. Some really good finds of online citations/social profiles do not always continue and end their services, so it is important to us to keep this updated. You also want to look into getting included in Data Aggregators, as these can help you get listed and found automatically on other citation sources. So they are important to include, but are not necessarily listings or citations.

The first section is going to be general citations and we will be providing industry specific citations. Some of the industry specific listings can be overlapping to our general list. We will also be adding more to our industry specific citations as we are only including a handful of industries on the original post. You can also make a copy of the list or download the list from our drive file. On the file there are multiple tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet. There are so many sources available, we probably have missed some, if you think we have missed some please let us know so we can add them to the list.

If you are busy running your company and want an expert team to handle this process for you, get in touch with us today. This is a part of our local SEO strategy and we build links to these citations to increase their power, authority and trust. Besides our citation building campaign, we use other additional strategies to help your business get found on Google Maps. There are many citations on our list we use as examples of how you should build and fill out your listings.
