What is the citation in SEO?

Citations are an important part of the search algorithm and are used by the search engines to help determine where to rank your site among the competition. In simple terms, for small and local businesses if you have more citations than the other man then you will likely be returned above them in the Search Engine Results Page (SERP)

A citation is an online reference to your business's name, address and phone number (NAP). Like links to your website, Google uses them when evaluating the online authority of your business.

Hi,

A citation can be an internet mention of a business's name, address and contact number (NAP). In evaluating the authority of one's small enterprise like links to your site, they are used by Google.

Howdy Everyone,

A local citation is any mention of your business on the web; it is any combination of your company name, phone number, address, zip or postal code, and website address. Citations in SEO are a key factor in improving your local search results.
Thanks!
