Citations: What and Why?
A citation is just a listing of your name, address and phone number. Nothing special about them except for the fact that google gives them a whole lot of weight when it comes to determining which businesses are more or less relevant to their searchers. If Google sees your listings everywhere on high-authority sites like Angie’s List or Yelp, you appear to be far more influential among other local professionals in the same field.
You can make citations just about anywhere. You could drop them in forums if you wanted to, but the problem with that is that they’ll likely be deleted. If you want them to stick around and generate maturity, you need to put them places designed to host them. Business directories are what you’re looking for, and that exactly what you’ll find in our list.
Our list is a list of the best business directories serving accountants. For each one, we’ve provided a link to the profile creation page. Just click one, complete the registration process and congratulations—you’re a citation builder.
