Automation is almost everywhere in the digital marketplace and most of it isn’t of high-quality.

different types of citations destiny marketing solutions


Different Types of Citations


Our team builds a variety of citations to help deliver the best results. However, we never pick citation sources at random, instead we always choose the top 50 citations that will provide you with the most relevance and authority. Here are four different types of citations that we build: 


Business Directories


These are a good mix of every citation and are still the gold standard for structure citations. We build NAP consistency on various biz directories that match your industry, location, and several other factors. 




These citations utilize massive size and authority of various social platforms. As a result, you get high-quality citations that drive massive link juice to your website and Google listing. Social citations are extremely important to ensure there is a balance in your local SEO campaign. 




Both users and search engines love images and this makes photo citations important. Our experts will fill the photos of your business that you supply us with relevant and SEO metadata. Then we will submit these images to some of the largest image sharing websites. This drives local citations from multiple high-authority photo sharing sites and can potentially bring in traffic. 




To give a final touch of variety to your local citation profile, we will do brand mentions of your business on video sharing platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, and many others. If your business doesn’t have a video already, we will create one for you and submit it to a video sharing website with your business NAP and description. 


Why Citations Should Not Be Automated? 


A big reason why citations should not be automated is because any citation or mention that is made using a software or a tool is of poor quality. It is not reliable and will soon be removed. Moreover, these citations can negatively affect your local SEO efforts, which can be detrimental to your business’s growth. 


Furthermore, there is a lot less accuracy when relying on automated methods for citation building. It is important that every piece of information used in citation is 100% accurate and identical to your business. Even a single citation with wrong information about your business can be easily interpreted as a competing business. You would gradually start losing your rankings, traffic, and brand authority, especially if a bad citation is picked up by an aggregator.

Create New Citations

Frequently Asked Questions


What is citation building?


Citation building is the process of mentioning or listing your brand name, address, and contact number (NAP) on various local SEO business directories and social platforms. The platforms where citations are built are known as citation sources or simply as business directories. They play an important role in local SEO rankings and building your brand’s name and trust in local search results. 


How long does it take for an order to be completed?


The time it takes to deliver an order usually depends on its size and requirements. You may want these mentions built out for a single website. In that case, it would usually be less than ten days. However, for multiple sites it can take up to two weeks, but we always try our best to deliver every order as soon as possible. When you place an order, you will be given a reasonable deadline for submission and we will make sure to send you the deliverables before the deadline approaches. 


What information will I have to provide?


We will need your business NAP (Name, Address, and Phone Number) along with your website URL, GMB URL (if listed), business description, logo, business images, video, and any other relevant information about your business. We will also match the information you provide with your business to double-check everything is 100% accurate. 


What is the difference between structured and unstructured citations for local businesses? 


For local businesses, structured citations are the ones that are built on sites designed specifically for listing. These sites usually have a form where you input your business information, which includes NAP. Unstructured citations are the ones that are created outside of form fields. For example, when you write out your NAP information on a blog, leave it as a caption on an image or include in the description of a video site or a social platform.
