The Guide to International Citations for Local Search

Over the past nine months, the importance of citations for Local SEO has become more and more apparent to me.  And although I’m very focused on sourcing and acquiring citations for my own clients, all of whom are based in the United States, I realize there’s a whole wide world out there that I and other Local Search bloggers rarely pay attention to.

After all, Local Search is just as important, if not more important, to the worldwide audience as it is in the U.S.  In fact, in many countries around the world like Japan and the E.U., Local is playing an even larger role in everyday people’s lives because those cultures are so much more mobile-oriented already.

So on that note, I decided to draw on the expertise of readers and colleagues around the world to develop what I think is the first “Guide to International Citations.”

This will be a four-part series, focusing on:

  • Anthony

    Great post about Google. Keep up the good work.

  • Dan

    Thanks for this! Quite helpful! Most of the everyday “citations” are US only.

  • Just a simple question for Local Search does this mean i.e. people are using local Google for their search query? Or are they still using but on their search term they include a name of a place?

  • @Nievo Nope google redirects to the local domain when u type in at any locality
