free citation websites for local search

One of the first things we do for our clients is check their footprint with citation websites and directories for business listings.  This low hanging fruit is one of the primary drivers behind Google Maps listing results and it helps with organic search.

The basics behind the formula are spreading your business NAP (Name, Address, Phone Number) and website to reputable local listing websites.

We have compiled a list of the best free citation websites to post your local business info and earn better results in the google map results.
