I am running a local resto here in Florida. I was told by a friend to hire SEO that is building citations to help me increase my sales and that is why I'm planning to hire one. I want to understand first what is a citation and how important it is for my business. Hoping I could get a response here.

Hey @Jeffery G,

 

Citations are defined as mentions of your business name and address on other webpages—even if there is no link to your website. An example of a citation might be an online yellow pages directory where your business is listed, but not linked to. Citations can also be found on local chamber of commerce pages, or on a local business association page that includes your business information, even if they are not linking at all to your website.

A citation is whenever your company is being mentioned online. It becomes more effective for SEO purposes if it has your business name, phone number, your business address and also your website link.

Through citation, your business will likely be noticed by potential customers who tend to use the internet to search for the products and services they are looking for.

I highly recommend this article https://moz.com/learn/local/citations from moz.com because it will give you simple understanding on why citations are very important for your business.
