Local Citation

Get a listing for your online business or brand on premium high-quality local directories.

Local directories are websites that function as an online version of the yellow pages book. There will be a list of firms operating in a specific area in an Internet local directory. In addition to a high Page Rank (Upwards of 3+), these local directories also have high Domain Authority (DA) and Page Authority (PA). A listing in one of these directories will result in more traffic, backlinks, and a rise in search engine rankings.

How To Check Your Local Citations


There are literally 100s of local citation sources you could check. Indeed, when doing a comprehensive manual audit of your citations, you could in theory check all the major citation sites by hand.

In reality, there are only a few major data aggregators that you likely would want to check. These include big players like Facebook and Apple Maps. We’ve included a shortlist of where to get citations here.


To make things easier, Moz offers a local listings tool for your business. You can check your local business listings across the web for both inclusions and accuracy. These listings include the major data aggregators that most influence web results.

What are the types of local citations?


Local business owners and marketers can create citations on a variety of important local business data platforms that exist to publish this type of data. Core platforms include Google My Business, Acxiom, Localeze/Neustar, and Infogroup. Key local business listings can also be built on popular social and review-oriented sites like Facebook and Yelp.


In addition to building local business listings on the major local business data platforms that serve all industries, your company can seek to build listings on websites that are specific to its unique industry and geography. Examples of these platforms would include chamber of commerce websites or the websites of professional associations and guilds.


Supplementary citations can either be built or earned on a wide variety of publications, including blogs, news sites, apps, maps, government databases, and more. You can either intentionally develop these citations for your business, or simply earn them based on merit and public interest/sharing of information.

All of the above types of citations can be developed via the use of automated software (like Moz Local), by filling out forms directly on local business platforms manually, or via other methods of PR/marketing to various platforms.

Finally, citations and local business listings frequently appear without any action being taken by the business. Citations can result from automated aggregation and the flow of data from local business data platforms. For example, data on a site like Infogroup can flow down to another site like Superpages. This reality of how the web works makes it especially important for local businesses to take control of the accuracy of their data, so that inaccurate data is discovered and corrected, preventing customer loss, revenue loss, and any negative impact on local search rankings.
