Citation (local SEO)

What is a citation?

When looking at local SEO, a citation is usually seen as a reference to the name, address and phone number (NAP) of a business/organisation.

When a business's NAP is consistently listed on other websites and directories, it helps build the credibility of the business, and in turn can potentially improve its ranking in Google's local search results.
