Citations are generally described as mentions of your business name, address, and phone number on other webpages and internet business directories, even if there is no link to your actual website. A good example of a citation could be an online directory where your business is listed – just like the old Yellowpages propping up your coffee table. Additionally it can be a local business association or even a chamber of commerce, where your business information can be found, even if they are not linking at all to your website. These citations that are in your local area can many times be the most powerful as they are more geographically relevant to your business.

Our initial services focuses on a handful of must-have citations and big data aggregators, perfect for new sites or businesses who haven’t built many citations yet. This service is best thought of as a mix between a Getlisted.org service and a Universal Business Listing alternative. We combine submission to the big data aggregators that UBL submits to like Infogroup and Acxiom as well as creation of business listings on the top tier 20 best business listing sites, most are what GetListed.org reports.

Here’s the shortlist of the big data aggregators we submit to and a little bit of info about each one

Infogroup

INFOGROUP

This big dog powers the likes of Google Maps, Mapquest, Bing Local, Yahoo Local, TomTom, AOL Local, and the list goes on.

Out of all 3, this is the single most powerful local data aggregator.
I have had Google Places pages created automatically after submission to Infogroup.

Acxiom

ACXIOM

A big data company, you can even use their data in Facebook Ad targeting.They power major sites like Yelp, Yellowpages, Superpages, Local.com, Apple, and more.
Factual

FACTUAL

Compared to the above 2 Factual is a smaller player but still has an inside feed directly to Apple, Bing, TripAdvisor, and others.

If your business information is incorrect at any of these 3 major providers, it may override what the major search engines have in their own database. And if you’re not included in the databases of these major providers, you might not be able to rank as easily in Google, Yahoo, and Bing.

Citations are a key component of the ranking algorithms of the major search engines. All other things being equal, a business with more citations will generally have better rankings than those with less citations.

Citations from well-established and well-indexed portals (like Superpages.com for example) help increase the degree of certainty the search engines have about your business’s contact information and categorization. To paraphrase former Minnesota Vikings coach Dennis Green, citations help search engines confirm that businesses are “who we thought they were!”

Citations can be especially important in easier niches (like plumbing or electrical contractors) where a large number of businesses don’t even have websites themselves. Since there is no other information out there, Google (and Bing/Yahoo) will return search results based on whatever information they are able to find!

Citations also provide validation that your business is part of a larger business community. It’s going to be difficult for someone to fake their membership in the local chamber of commerce or in a city business index, and even more difficult to be written about in a local online newspaper or popular blog if they are not who they say they are. Citations (and furthermore links) that come from these websites can drastically improve your rankings in local search results.

Let your potential neighboring clients know where you are!
