Top U.S. Local Directory Citation Sources
GetListed.org and Whitespark.ca recently released some important data on the top local citation sources by city and by category.  We thought it would be interesting to take that data and determine which directories on average had the most citation influence in the entire country.  While it’s good to focus on your local service area and business category for citation building, in most cases, regardless of your location or industry, these are the sites you should almost always include while citation-building.

  3. SuperPages
  4. CitySearch
  5. Yahoo Local
  6. Facebook
  7. DexKnows
