Citation links - New link building strategy in SEO

Citation links - New link building strategy in SEO

Do you know citations for your business can help improve your business rankings. Citations links or just citation of your business not necessarily a clickable links i.e. mention of you business address or telephone number etc in a credible community or yellowpage website etc can dramatically improve website rankings in search engines. Citation links are very much important in local SEO listing rankings.

Rankings in Google rely very much on citations i.e mentions of a business around the web so that the address and business name and phone can be validated. More citation and validated citation a business have means, more the business is trusted by Google to appear in the local or maps results. I hope now you must have a clue that despite being listed in Google local and adding of keywords, title etc why you site still doesn't apprear in search results in the maps or
local listings. This means you need some catations, reviews and validation to improve the rankings.

One thing you can do before starting to build citation links for your business is to see if there are some citation links already or not. This can be done by searching your business name in google local or maps and then in your business listing page click on the "Web pages" tab, if it shows some site then its great otherwise you need to starting getting citation links.

Some of the citations sites that you can consider include:

- Yellowpages (with business validation and reviews)
- Review sites
- Donations to some charity
- Sponsorship of some event or cause
- Discussion forums (not just every forum but the one that are authoritative)
- Patent application
- Research content
- Interview at some expert site
- Classifieds of business directories
- Directories
- Local search glossaries

Hope now you have some idea of how citation can help your local SEO campaign. Please feel free to get in touch for building citation links, visit
