Here are some of the key takeaways from the local citations survey, 90% of local experts say accurate citations are critical or at least very important to search engine rankings. 86% of local SEO experts say quality of citations is more important than the quantity of citations. Industry relevance is the most important factor to consider when choosing which citation sites to use. 33% of local SEO experts say nice or industry directories offer the greatest authority to your dental website.

Correct address formatting on citation is important but not critical, say 21 local search experts. 62% of local search experts say rich citations, in other words the way that you build the citations are essential or very important.
