The BrightLocal team just completed what sounds like a monster research task and it will help all of you, so check it out.

<a href="">1000+ Niche Citation Sites
for 41 Local Business Categories</a>

Two months ago I set our Marketing & Citation team the challenge of curating the most comprehensive list of niche citation sites available on the internet.

This post & the citation lists below are the outcome of this 8 week project. It?s taken far more time to complete than we expected but we now have a great list of over 1,000 useable, categorised & genuine niche citation sites to share with you!

Sure, there are a number of posts/resources around which list the most common sites for a category or look at 1 or 2 specific categories, but there is no comprehensive guide for lots of categories in 1 place. Until now!

Thanks Myles and the BL team!
