    Citation Strategy


    Hi Guys

    I have a question about your citation strategy I'm hoping you can answer... I have just inherited 40 local clients in the South of England who have been using another agency that folded, and they have been buiding 10 citations a month as part of the seo strategy. Is 10 citations a month enough? I'm reading 20 is enough, 100 is enough, even been advised 200!

    How many do you think is a good number for budgets between 250 - 500? I will be sourcing the citations lists myself for the various local areas, but really need to understand how many I should build...

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Check how many citations the competition is using. Then focus on the most important citations. For example, if your client works with computers, focus on citations for computers, technology, internet, and related fields, etc. I'm in the US, so I don't know how pounds relate to dollars. But in general, it's good to do more work than your competition.

    How well do you rank ? Is it only 10 citations per month and thats all you get for your monthly budget ?

    I don't think you can just say a number of the citations you can gain monthly. It depends on niche and location.
    If you have a restaurant somewhere in USA, you can make hundreds citations but if you have an agency and do tax consulting somewhere in Cambodia you would be so happy to have 10 citations overall.
    Citations have a value if they are in the right category (relevant to your niche).
