Top 30 citations sites for local SEO UK

Citation Building

Hold your horses, before you go spamming your link all over please read on.

The days of link building as we used to know it are far gone and actually, can damage your site and reputation.
It’s not to say link building is dead. We just need to do it the proper way!

Citations are a significant factor in local SEO and one not to be overlooked even if your link is not included.

How to Build Citations

Remember to keep your consistent NAP (Business Name, Address and Phone Number). Google is smart but if your details are not the same on all citation listings, it may result in them being missed or not counted.

Don’t forget listings like the local chamber of commerce directory.

Council directories and local business directories. Before you go jumping ship and looking for the best citation building service or directory submitting service think about this.

Entering your details on each service manually will give you the best results. Paid and free submitting services are not always great. They can get your information wrong or put it in the wrong place in submission forms all resulting in a waste of time and money.

Now that we know what they are, how they work and why they are important here is the holy grail of the best UK citations for the UK.
