What are citations?

Citations are considered the name, address, and phone number of a business or NAP.  Placing your business citation on your website is extremely important.  In fact, the more websites your citation is listed, the more information you provide the search engines about how big your business may be.  Think about it for a second…The more places you are listed or mentioned, the higher the chance of being seen, right?  It’s no different than traditional marketing regarding more exposure.  However, you also are raising your hand to Google saying “Here I am, I am listed on all of these websites.”  Google then thinks of you as somewhat important, and decides to rank you higher.  This is considered a task under the umbrello called Local SEO.

Get your business listed on as many sites as possible, starting with business directories like Yelp, Manta, and Yp.com.  Sure, it is alot of work, but hey, you can always let us handle that for you.  ha 🙂
