500+ Citation Sites for 100 US Cities – Updated 2018

The clean-up and building of local citations is an essential task for a business which wants to rank well in local search.

It’s easy to find out which citations have the highest authority, but authority isn’t everything. Local and Industry relevance is also very important but finding these types of citations is time consuming and repetitive.

To help short-cut this process we’ve taken the time to heavily research the market and compile an exhaustive list of local business listing sites for 100 of the largest cities in the USA.

Find local citation sites for top US cities

We recently updated our list of niche citation sites covering 43 different business categories, spanning the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. That resource helps SEOs and local businesses to identify citation sites that are relevant to their industry, whether that is finance, autos, plumbing, web design, or florists, etc.

In this list, we’ve identified citation sites that are suitable for all industries, spanning 100 of the largest cities in the US (based on population size).

How did we find 500+ citation sites?

Using a variety of sources, including our own Citation databases, manual research and existing online resources, we have compiled this list and manually reviewed each site.

However, we’ve only included sites that:

  • allow a listing for any type of business (rather than a niche industry)
  • are unique to that US city, so they are proper local directories (no Yelp’s, Yahoo’s, CitySearch’s or statewide directories in this list)

All citation sites are listed under their relevant city section, and each listing contains the following information:

  • Site name
  • Domain Authority*
  • Is it a Free / Paid / Reciprocal listing?
  • What is the listing page URL/contact form (where available)?

*Domain Authority was recorded using Moz’s Link Explorer tool, which fluctuates over time. DA scores were correct as of May 2018.

How do I find the city I want?

Please use this index of categories to jump down to the city you are interested in – just click on the name.

How can I download these citation lists?

Underneath each city table is a link to download an excel file of all the sites relevant to that city. There isn’t 1 big, ‘uber’ list containing every citation for every city, so you will have to download 1 per city.

Help us to keep this list up to date

We know that there will be some sites we didn’t pick up on. We really welcome your feedback on this list, so please send us updates or suggestions for new sites and we’ll add them ASAP.

  1. I didn’t see Ft. Lauderdale, Florida unless I missed it, which is surprising since it encompasses many small cities and overall has a large population.
    One directory which might be added is LocalCityLink.com, free and is primarily all South Florida.

    Thanks for the list, very helpful!

    Mike

  2. Hello Ross:

    Of the citation sources your have documented, do any of them support UNSTRUCTURED CITATIONS which would accommodate DOMAIN NAMES references vs. only businesses with fixed GEO locations?

    Thank you in advance for a prompt and detailed response.
    ~ Alan

    1. Hi Alan,

      Thanks for your comment. While we don’t currently have a resource like that, it’s certainly something that we’ll consider putting together. Thanks for the suggestion!

      Jamie

  3. Must say thanks to you for this useful & excellent post will defiantly share and recommend to all keep share your posts !!!

  4. Great local citation site. Your articles on citations are the best in the business!

    For Buffalo, Buffalo Niagara Partnership (listed as thepartnership.org) is not free. They require an annual membership fee to be a member of their partnership. Also, southbuffalo.org no longer exists.

    Thanks!

  5. This is a great resource. Thank you for compiling these lists, putting them to use in our service offering now 🙂

    We just launched a new resource for Atlanta, GA based businesses (http://localatlantaga.com), any opportunity the site could be reviewed for incorporation in the future would be appreciated.

    Thank you!

  6. And while we are waiting for the UK version, here is a great list with 200+ UK citation websites ans local directories including some really valuable resources for London, Manchester, etc.

    1. Thanks for everyone’s feedback. Ian & Malcolm – re. the UK version, it’s definitely something we’d like to do, as would an Australia / Canada version too – so the short answer is yes – it’s just a case of fitting it in over the next few months.

      1. Hi Tyson, Jeff,

        We picked the 100 cities according to their population size, eg. on this paritcular list (http://www.city-data.com/top1.html), Salt Lake does not feature.

        However, with a demand for more cities, I will add it to the list when we come to expanding the list.

        Thanks for the comments.
