BrightLocal’s Top Citations – 2018

DriveTraffic Digital MarketingBrightLocal just announced their updated list of local citations for USA, UK, Canada and Australia. I was excited to check it out as there are a few sites that they consider “top citations” that just don’t work – you can’t add your site to these directories for one reason or another.

I was disappointed to see that these sites are still on the list – makes me wonder if they have just re-purposed previous content without updating it? I am not about to compare but if you are in the mood to do so, here are links to the two lists 🙂

2017 Canadian citations

2018 Canadian citations

I guess I have a couple of options moving forward: 1) Hire BrightLocal to build citations to sites that my team has struggled with (see table below) 2) Maybe Tweet BrightLocal if they also are unable to build citations on the listings below and ask them to update their 2018 list accordingly!
