Google Places Citation Sites

Good Sites for Google Places Citations

 

The big question in today’s SEO market is where to get the best coverage for citations. Here are three ways to begin this process:

 

  • Free self-listings: take full advantage of free listing sites, especially the major ones since they tend to carry more weight in calculating rank.
  • Keyword Searches: do your own searches using relevant terms to your business to see what pops. Try to find the things that will make your business more unique, and therefore more desirable.
  • Competitor Analysis: keep an eye on the competition – try getting yourself listed on the same sites that they’re on as well as finding some places where they aren’t so you can begin to have more than they do. There is software available to do this for you if you don’t want to do it yourself.

 Some of the best sites to use for your listings in order to help boost your SEO listing can be found below:
