About those Citations
What in the world are citations?
They're essentially directories around the internet the search engines use to gauge how often a certain business is seen in those directories.
The more directories you're in, the higher the chances you'll increase your ranking in the search results.
The single most important factor to keep in mind when inputing your business into these directories is making absolutely certain to use your business name, phone number, and address EXACTLY as it appears in your Google My Business account. If they aren't exactly the same, the count won't be as high as it should when Google's or Bing's robots crawl the directories counting the number of times you show up.
