Local Citation Submissions
Online citations are an integral part of any SEO strategy, and this is largely because an optimized citation strategy can lead to improved local rankings and the ROI that countless business leaders are looking for in their digital marketing investments.
But citations can also be a nightmare when they aren’t developed correctly, so below we’ll be going over everything you need to know about our local citation submission services!
What Are Citations?
Citations are online reference points that businesses can feature themselves within, and there are likely millions of listing sites throughout the Web that you’ll be able to list your business’ information within. The type business information that usually is featured on these sites includes your company’s name, your physical address and your phone number (NAP). It’s likely that you’ll also be able to include your logo and a business description as well.
Although there are hundreds of high-quality citations that every business should have, the following are a few “must-haves”:
- Google My Business
- Bing Maps
- Apple Maps
It’s also important for business leaders to understand that there are citation categories that help businesses develop relevant citations oriented around what they specifically do.
Obtaining an online citation is also a lot easier said than done in certain scenarios, because there are many listing websites that will require you to submit an application for a citation prior to having your business listed on their site.

Why Citations Are Important For SEO
A lot of business leaders understand that having their company information listed online is important, but they don’t quite understand just how effective these strategies are for SEO campaigns.
The following are some of the reasons why citations are so important for SEO:
Improving Local Rankings:
Citations are one of the most important ranking factors for local SEO rankings, so being listed on high-quality directories will provide a signal to Google that indicates the overall reputation of your company. Quantity, quality and accuracy are all important features to keep in mind for your citations, because this will play a role in how Google understands your overall online presence.
Use Your Citations To Get To Page One Results:
A lot of people forget to consider the fact that major online directories are many times at the very top of local searches. This can include websites like YellowPages and Yelp, so if you can’t beat these rankings giants then you can always join them! Your citations on reputable directories can ultimately put you in a great position to obtain highly-coveted rankings for your most important keywords.
Earning Referral Traffic:
Countless online users are loyal to certain directory sites, one example being Yelp and how people find restaurants. So when your business is listed on a maximum amount of potential directories, you’ll be able to earn very valuable referral traffic that you otherwise wouldn’t have been able to reach.
