Top Local Citations by Business Category

Top Local Citations by Business Category

1,000+ Niche Citation Sites in 43 Business Categories – Updated 2018

Online directories (often referred to as ‘citation sites’) are crucial for local search optimization, and our recent research shows that consumers lose trust in businesses with inaccurate business listings. But which online business directories and citation sites are the best? The citation lists below are the outcome of a huge project to compile the most comprehensive list of niche citation sites available on the internet.

Focusing on the top citation sites by business category, this resource was originally published in 2014 but has now been refreshed for 2017, thanks to countless man-hours from our in-house citation team, as well as valuable feedback and new site suggestions we’ve had from you in that time — so thanks for all your comments!

What follows is an updated list of over 1,000 niche citation sites for 40+ business categories.

How we identified 1,000+ Citation Sites

Using a variety of sources (including our own local citation databases, manual research, existing resources, etc.) we compiled a pool of over 10,000 possible business listing sites. We manually reviewed each of these sites and filtered them down to the top 20-40 citations per business category.

Filter steps:

  • Is it a niche directories / citation site? (If no, then discard – so no here.)
  • Is there a clear ‘Add Listing’ option? (If no, then discard.)
  • Does the site operate in one of USA / CAN / UK / AUS (If no, then discard.)
  • Does the site have a Domain Authority of 10+? (If no, then discard.)

Categorization steps:

  • What business category does it cater to?
  • What is the Domain Authority of the site?
  • Does it offer a Free or Paid Listing (or in some cases Reciprocal)?
  • What is the listing page URL?

Niche Citation Categories

Naturally, not every industry or local business category is catered for, but we have tried to include as many popular industries as possible. Within each category we’ve tried to provide the top citation sites, online business directories, and business listings listes for that industry.

Pest Control Citations

Pest control is an interesting local SEO category as it generally involves service area businesses (SAB’s). SABs often struggle to gain prominence in local search due to their lack of a physical location, or their reluctance to promote their location, but these business listings sites and online directories can help.

Restaurants Citations

  1. This could be very helpful if you have or are marketing any business in these niches. I am helping my friend who has a recording studio and also teaches piano, drums, bass,voice and guitar lessons. ANY SUGGESTIONS ??

    1. Hi Mark, great question!

      I totally understand the issues you’re finding as recording studios are so niche as a service area that we don’t have any directories on file which we submit to. Even when manually searching online there are very few, and those that do exist are paid services (which BrightLocal doesn’t submit to).

      A factor to bear in mind is that directories can be so location-specific that it’s very difficult to advise where to list, especially in a niche field such as this. What may help, though, is if you search “Recording studios near me” and benchmark where others in the same field are listed. That may open some opportunities.

      Hope that helps!


  2. Wonderful collection of commenting sites. I really like it. It will be very helpful for me. Thanks for sharing such insights. Great work. Much appreciated.
    Can I get do follow backlinks by commenting on these sites?? Please reply..

  3. Thanks!

    Very useful with relevant niche citations.

    I tried to fill out some of the citations – directory under marketing. But I think some of them was very hard and complicated to sign up to……

    Especially was totally confussing.

    Cheers Edvard Vedvik

    1. Hi Edvard, thanks for your comment.

      We’re actually looking to update this resource very soon, so we’ll take your feedback on board for when we do!



    1. Hi Shauna, so glad you’re finding it useful! We’ll be updating these lists this year so watch out for those.



  4. It’s a great list indeed. I use these directories in my work, but occasionally do I find some good directories. So many information were new to me. Very recently did I come across the ultimate niche directory for HVAC businesses. It’s great to see many niche directories explode. Thanks again for these valuable information.

    1. Hi John, glad you’re finding it useful! Many thanks for letting us know about the updated URL for DMNews; we’ve updated the link now.



  5. This Is Wonderful directory submission sites list. All directory sites are high quality and Google SEO friendly. This list is very helpful for us. Thanks for sharing a valuable list. 😉

  6. Hi
    amazing post.
    I want to know my clients have 2 different niches one has Mens clothing and other has Mattress (bed) business.

    which category should I use

    Please let me know

    1. Hi, James…There’s not a directory for each category. The mattress company might fit in one of the “home” directories. The first thing you want to do is, make sure that your clients accurately listed on the MAJOR general citation sites (Yelp, Google My Business, MerchantCircle, etc.) That’s going to be the best place to start. — Sherry

  7. This is a great source of information. but sorry saying that I was looking for travel category which was missing , if you would add it that will make this list more valuable.

  8. Great list thank you! I’m in the commercial real estate business which means more than one of these categories could work since it’s B2B.

  9. It is a great list which I find very useful, however, there are some errors.

    Several times I wanted to use the citation site that was shown as “free” but it was actually paid one. In some cases “Free” site turns out to be the one that requires reciprocal link (wasn’t specified in the list) and some sites do not work at all, so maybe it is worth reviewing it?

    Thank you.

  10. Great resource.. But I am missing the top citation sites for Home/Renovation/Remodeling. Would be great to get information’s about it. Thanks

  11. Great list thank you! I’m in the commercial real estate business which means more than one of these categories could work since it’s B2B.

    1. Hi, Sara…

      Great question! We submit to many of the sites you see here; however we don’t submit to any paid directories from these lists. Our CitationBurst service has 3 steps within our platform:

      Step 1: Input the business’ name, address and phone number as well as business type.

      Step 2: We’ll then show you a list of the most relative citations that we can submit this business to. On this step you can filter by niche directories to see exactly where we can submit to. You can see all this data before you pay us a penny. You then choose exactly where you want to be listed by ticking the sites you want.

      Step 3: Add the additional info we need such as the business description then purchase the campaign.

      Here’s a great video on setting up your first campaign:

      Please let me know if this helps.
