Local Business Directory List

We all know that local citations are still one of the important ranking factors in Google’s local search algorithms. Ensuring the quality of the citation sources is vital before any local business directory submission campaign.

Finding citation sources can be a time-consuming task. It takes countless hours of manual research just to collect local business directory sites that you can use for your campaign. There are some automated tools that you can use; however, most of the time, these will only provide limited results.

Our team of citation experts prepared these top citations by category and country list for brand and agency use. We have collected these local business directories from thousands of citation campaigns from different businesses in different countries and groups. Our team set some metrics to ensure that each local business directory meets our quality guidelines.  Below are the parameters that we use in defining the quality of a local citation site:

Domain Authority and Domain Rating

The higher the Domain Authority and Domain Rating, the better! These are the metrics we use to gauge how authoritative a site is.  By having said that, we aim to start our campaign by submitting the business information of our clients to the citation sites that have higher DA and DR.

Organic Traffic

There is no noticeable drop in organic traffic. A steep drop in traffic could mean a search penalty.

Index Page

The not-index profile is useless. It means Google will be unable to discover your business profile. Our team is monitoring these citation sites and removing sites that have zero index rates.

Site Structure and Design

We want to make sure that we are not using spammy looking sites. So we remove low-quality directories that show signs of link farms and places that are still using old SEO techniques like stuffing keywords, link exchange, and more.

All of these checks were conducted by our team and compiled into a readily available list. So when doing a local business directory submission campaign, you can grab our listing below to save you more time from searching for citation sources. 

But before that, make sure you saw our Local Citation Guide. We prepared a nifty guide based on our ten years of providing local citation services for different brands and agencies.
