We are always on the lookout for relevant sites where we can get our clients good healthy backlinks. In terms of SEO for local businesses, having what are citation sites that list your business along with things like your address, phone number and hours of operation is a good idea. The reason for this is because Google wants to serve up the most relevant information to its users. They do not want to serve up closed businesses or even a fake company that only exists on the internet. One way of identifying if a business website is relevant is to make sure that it’s valid and been validated by other reputable services from companies like Bing, Yelp, Yahoo, Manta, etc.
Another way to think about this concept is that if a business is listed on a local chamber of commerce site as a member, and listed on a BBB site for a local chapter, that is probably a real and valid business.
