Top 50 Local Citation Sites for USA, UK, Canada, and Australia – Updated 2019

Looking for the best local citation sites to get listed on?

Originally published back in 2013 and updated every year since, here you will find Top 50 Local Citation Sites for the USA, UK, Canada and Australia.

How are they selected?

We carefully select each site based on a range of criteria –

– Domain Authority (i.e. their ranking power)
– Generic Sites (i.e. businesses in all categories can get listed on them)
– Active Sites (i.e. they’re still in business)
– Accept New Listings (i.e. not closed business lists)

How do you add your listing to each site?

We have  included links to each site, so you can go straight to them, create an account and build your business listing. This can take around 15-20 mins to do per site.

Be warned, though…
On average, local businesses in the top 10 Google local search results have 81 citations* – to create this many you would be looking to spend over 20 hours manually building citations! Do you really have that much time to spare?
