Thanks to location tracking on most smart devices, local SEO is more important than ever. Accurate local citations are an important element that works hand-in-hand with Google My Business regarding how the search engine orders businesses in local search results.
To go a little more into detail, a ‘local citation’ is any kind of mention of your business name, address, or phone number online. These can be present on apps, websites, social platforms, or online business directories. Via these citations, internet users are able to discover relevant businesses that are local to them. They can also use citation to discover vital information, like hours of operation, geo-coordinates and directions, and alternate phone numbers. There are many different types of local citations, each affecting your business ranking on Google differently. Some citation types include geo-specific citations, industry-specific citations, major local business data citations, and wider web citations. These may sound confusing, but don’t worry, we are here to help!
