Benjamin build a very interesting analysis which can be very inspiring when building citations.

Citations can be built anywhere as long as the source has local seo authority.

Thanks for sharing!

It's kind of crazy but real businesses put up job posts. Great place to put your N.A.P. information too.

Hey Benjamin,

Great compilation!

I wanted to add some comments, but unfortunately in order to do that I seem to need to be registered. I tried to register, but I landed on a page saying:

"
[h=1]Service Temporarily Unavailable[/h] The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later."

Cheers again for the great post!

Yeah, I saw that post as well and it's probably the best post on unstructured citation building tactics I have ever seen. Awesome job Benjamin. Thanks for putting this together. I'll be referring to it over and over again in my work.
