Get Whitespark’s List of Top Citations
We realize that looking at these top citation sites on our website is nice and everything, but the real value lies in having these accessible in a neat and tidy list. Which is why we’ve put together a spreadsheet for you that includes the list of top citations for each country and the corresponding website!
In addition to the factors mentioned above we also incorporated other elements that had an impact on the final list. Any citation sources that were unsuable for some of the following (or other reasons), were removed from our top lists:
No way to directly add or update business information to the site.
• Example: The only way to add or update a business listing on Whitepages, according to their FAQ, is via ExpressUpdate’s feeds (might take 60 days for the information to get added or updated), or via Yext ($$$).
The website never, or almost never, takes action after reports of inaccurate or missing information.
• Example: Justdial.com, and many others.
The website receives all their information from other sources.
• Example: Allpages.com receive all their data from Acxiom.
There will be a lot of sites that simply do not operate anymore.
• Example: Bundle.com.
A Citation is any mention of your business on the web, with or without a link. It is any combination of your company name, phone number, address, zip or postal code. Citations can also be structured or unstructured.
Structured Citations are the most common form and can be found on business listing sites.
Unstructured Citation sources are mentions of your business on blogs, newspaper websites, event listings, job databases, government websites and so on.
