Building and cleaning up local business citations is an essential, ‘table stakes’ task for any business that 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 make the process of finding business listings in USA cities easier, 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.
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.
