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:
- Citations in Continental Europe (a guest post by Martijn Beijk)
- Citations in the UK (with help from the team at Distilled)
- Citations in Canada
- Citations in Australia (with help from Ash Nallawalla & Fabienne Rabiosi)
