Citations are important to your local rankings in Google. Being listed on third-party sites (AKA citation sources) can help you attract customers from a wide variety of sources and imporove your website visibilty.

What is a citation?

A citation is an online mention of a business on another website that features the Name, Address, and Phone number (NAP) of the business. For example an online mention of a business’ details on a third-party website or local directory such as Yelp, Angi, or Facebook. It includes the business’ name, address, and telephone number, and sometimes other details such as opening hours, products and services, images, videos and social media links.
