Local SEO: Top 50 Citation Sources

Local SEO Citation Sources

Brightlocal has published a list of the top 50 citation sources by country.  A citation is a listing of your business name, address and Phone # (NAP) on any website. So its NOT a link, its simply a mention of your business. Yet some citations carry more weight then others, so logically it would make sense if you could citations at each of the these 50 sources.  You can and you probably already have a lot of them BUT are they consistent is the question, and there are a few other factors involved.


From Brightlocal

The following lists of sites are extracted from over 100,000 reports run using our CitationTracker tool.

These sites are classified by country, with a different list of ‘Top 50′ sites per country. Their ranking is determined by ‘frequency of appearance’ in CitationTracker reports. We identify citation sites by querying Google, Yahoo & Bing for business data and then de-dupe the search results to leave 1 unique entry per domain per report. These sites are typically genuine ‘structured’ citation sites* which allow you to list &/or edit your business listings.

There are currently 4 country options available in our CitationTracker tool – USA, UK, Canada & Australia. Some of these sites are country specific and same have international coverage so may appear on more than 1 list.

 *NB – we haven’t filtered these results to remove ‘non-structured’ sites; it’s the nature of online business listings that structured citation sites dominate search results and citation reports.
