US Accommodation Citation Sources

Citation building is a powerful advertising strategy for hotel owners. It’s already important that hotels appear in as many U.S. business directories as possible, and the power it gives you to rank on search results is just icing on the cake. We’ve built successful strategies for hotel owners over the many years we’ve been doing this, and that experience has helped us pick out the best directories and citation opportunities that exist in this niche.

Our list of the best directories for hotels appears below, along with some structure that should make it easy for you to follow our work, and start your own. The list you see below is really all you need to get started, but after the list, we’ve included some advice for people who are new to creating citations.

Using our Citations for Hotel Owners

While the process can be time consuming, building citations is not difficult. Everything you need is already on our list. A citation is just any opportunity you have to drop your name, address or phone number. You mostly want to leave these on U.S. business directories, sites that are built to host business profiles. Citations typically perform much better on these types of sites.

To create a citation on any site, you just need to follow the instructions they give you when creating your profile. Thanks to our list, you already know which sites you need to target. Now, you just have to go to each of them and build out your profiles. When building profiles, you want to fill out as much information as they’ll allow. This will prevent confusion and give you the best chance at ranking.

Our team can take the lead if citation building is taking longer than you’d like. We are among the most experienced teams online, and we have affordable packages that offer you high power and high value.
