Best Local Citations by Country – A 2018 Update
We’ve expanded our resource of the top local citations by country to include the best business listings across 15 countries!
All of our lists utilize the same methodology we have used when we have set up the original Top Citations by Country lists for the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia a few years ago. They are also logically constructed in the following manner:
A) The first group of sites features the most important local search platforms, i.e. the places where the largest amount of users actually go to search for business information. These include, in most cases, Google, Bing, and Apple Maps.
B) The second group of sites includes the most important data aggregators for each country. These are usually the sites that send business data directly to the first group of sites, and may or may not be country-specific. For instance, every country has a unique “Yellow Pages” site, while data aggregators such as Infobel and Factual supply business data to a large number of platforms across many countries.
C) The third group of sites could be tagged “Key Sites” in the ecosystem – a term we introduced when we worked on the Local Search Ecosystem. These are sites that serve both as search platforms and as data providers (for instance Facebook, Yelp, Foursquare).
D) The rest of the sites are important business directories that are usually country-specific.
