Top Free International Citation Sites – Updated 2021

Top Free International Citation Sites – Updated 2021

BrightLocal’s Citation Builder tool 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.

We know how helpful such lists can be when SEOs and marketers are conducting citation research, so we’ve also recently updated this free resource for 2021.

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. 

For local SEOs and marketers who wish to work with businesses around the globe, the below table provides such a list.
