Top Free International Citation Sites

Top Free International Citation Sites

BrightLocal’s Citation Builder service has been nurtured over the years to provide you with the best, most efficient service. However, while we’d love to achieve world domination, expanding our product to include all available citation sites takes time.

In the meantime, we’re able to offer the next best thing—a comprehensive list of free international citation sites covering nearly 200 countries.

What Are International Citations?

International citations are from sites and mapping services that cater to business listings across multiple countries.

There are multiple national or local citation sites that cover one to two countries (e.g. the USA and Canada), but there aren’t as many sites available with global coverage.

Finding the best business listings sites for worldwide citations is important as part of a well-rounded SEO strategy. Being featured on these free citation sites can help to enhance how trusted a business is across the web and to boost brand visibility.
