Why are hotel citations important?

1. It’s good for Google

Google will reference local directories, including those for hotels and B&Bs when trying to learn more information about a business. Therefore, having accurate business data on these sites increases your chances of projecting an accurate picture to Google.

2. It’s good for customers

Consumers will often visit online directories when searching for nearby hotels or accommodation. Therefore, getting your business accurately listed on them can directly result in leads for the business.

What’s more, consumers visiting these sites are often quite far down the purchasing cycle, which means they are often more qualified leads than those from other sources.
