Why Citation Listings Best Effective for Google Local Rank?
What are Google Citations?
A Google citation is simply the name, address, and phone number of your business as Google sees it listed across the Internet. More commonly known as NAP. This means that when you claimed and filled out your Google Places listing you provided Google with a correct name, address, and phone number in your business listing. Again, commonly referred to as NAP.
If you know a little about search engine optimization, you probably understand that getting backlinks to your site’s pages are very important to helping your website get higher rankings in the Google organic search results. A backlink is simply a link back to your website or web page from another website.
If you receive proper backlinks using keywords in your anchor text as the link, you can easily achieve higher rankings for those keywords, even if your website on page optimization is not fantastic. Google views a backlink as a vote for your website by another website.
So, Google citations are SEO?
Not quite. A Google citation, while sometimes a link, is a mention of your businesses name, phone number and address. In other words, a Google citation is more of a validation by the Google search spiders that your business is real and your NAP is accurate. Think of it as “verification” of your real existence and credibility in the Google Places world. The more citations you have, the more credible your business appears to Google.
