What Are Citations?
Simply put, citations are a fancy internet term for any online reference to your business. Citations generally include your business website, name, address, and phone number among other things.

Examples of citations webpages include Yelp!, Bing, Yellow Pages, FourSquare, Google Maps, City Squares, Chamber of Commerce, Merchant Circle, as well as close to 50 other websites.
