Top Local Citation Sites by Country

Top Local Citation Sites by Country

No matter where you are in the world, citations remain a fundamental part of setting up SEO for local businesses. Beyond getting the key citations from large platforms like Google and Facebook in place, it’s worth spending time finding industry or location-specific citations to boost the relevance of your business website to online searches.

With that in mind, we’ve gathered the top citation sites for Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Africa into a single post. We’ve focused on these because these are the countries our citation building service works with, but if you want to see lists for other countries, why not let us know in the comments below?

Looking for the top citation sites in the UK, the USA, Canada, or Australia? Check out our dedicated resource for the UK, USA, Canada, and Australia.
