Citations are an important part of local SEO or helping your firm rank well for online searches in the areas you serve. Citations are mentions of your firm’s name and address on other sites, even if there is no link to your website. Citations can be found on local chamber of commerce pages, directories, and more. Citations are a critical component of the ranking algorithm search engines like Google and Bing use to rank websites. It’s estimated that citations account for up to 25% of local ranking factors.
Of course, not all citations are created equal. Citations on government and newspaper websites can be more valuable than citations found on business listing sites like YellowPages.com. Listings for your firm that are claimed by your business are also more valuable than listings that are left unclaimed and unverified.
The team at Actionable Agency provides dedicated citation building and removal services to ensure your listings are accurate, claimed, and updated with correct information about your firm. We do the work manually without submission tools to eliminate errors and help your firm rank higher on local search results.
