Welcome back to Whiteboard Wednesday with Gauge Digital Media. I’m Brett, and I’m Becca. Today we will be talking about Citations. Citations are a listing of your business’ name, address and phone number, otherwise known as NAP information, on major webpages like YellowPages, Yelp, Trip Advisor and many others.

Citations are an important factor in the ranking algorithms for Google & Bing.

According to the Moz local search ranking factors survey, “citations are the 3rd most important ranking factor” (Moz).

It is essential that you have your business’ correct NAP listed across the major citation sources. This includes your business’ local address and phone number. One of the biggest mistakes business’ make is using a P.O. Box or 1-800 number in their online citations.

It is also important to have only one listing. A duplicate listing occurs when a business has more than one listing for a single physical location online. When a business has duplicate listings, many negative outcomes can occur, such as ranking lower on Google.
