Hi everyone!

I wanted to share our latest study in case it is helpful to anyone here: SEO Citations Study: How Many Citations Do Local Businesses Have?

The study (and nifty interactive tool) shows:


  • The average number of citations for businesses in each industry
  • The average number of citations for businesses ranked 1-10 in Google Local
  • The most popular citation sites for each industry
  • How many businesses are missing listings on the top citation sites

I really hope you find this interesting and useful! Let me know if you had any questions or thoughts.

Rosie :D

Very insightful. I've always tried to explain the bell curve of citation building to clients but this will give me some data to reference that proves our strategy. Thanks!!
