Local citations have become an important part of SEO in the past year. With Google constantly expanding its range of quality ranking signals, creating strong, high-quality local citations has never become more important.

Local citations work as strong signals to convey to search engines that your business is, in fact, legitimate and more importantly, real. This becomes of vital importance as Google and other major search engines have always stated they want to rank real, authentic and high-quality websites higher in the search results.
