Everyone knows all the top citation sources - it's time to think outside the box!

Wanted to share a great post my friend Matthew Hunt wrote today. Head on over - it's definitely worth a read and a bookmark.

5 Ridiculously Sneaky Citations Most Small Business Never Think to Get!

Just like backlinks not all citations or mentions of your local business are created equal.

There are already a ton of <a href="http://www.smallbusinessonlinecoach.com/blog/seo/google-maps-citations-reviews/">great posts</a> on where to get the <a href="http://www.ngsmarketing.com/local-citation-building-study-part-4-local-business-directories-around-the-world-canada-uk/" target="_blank">basic top 100</a> citations and/or <a href="http://www.websitemagazine.com/content/blogs/posts/archive/2011/03/25/20-user-review-websites-critical-to-small-business.aspx" target="_blank">review site</a> <em></em>mentions and I don’t want to publish yet another post on that matter.

If you want to know the top citations based on city then visit <a title="Best Local Citation Sources by City" href="http://getlisted.org/resources/local-citations-by-city.aspx" target="_blank">this page</a>.  However, if you want to get sneaky citations your competitors are probably not getting <em>(unless they read this post too <img src="http://www.smallbusinessonlinecoach.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" class="wp-smiley"> )</em> then stick around.
What do you think?
Good Stuff?

Hi Gerry,

This post is 3 years old. Have not re-read lately so don't know what all it says.

But not everything we read is a good idea. And even things that USED to seem like a good idea 3 years ago, no longer are. :)

But thanks for bringing an old thread back to light, since there may be other good tips in it that are still applicable.

No worries at all Gerry. Happens all the time. I've done it at least 150 in my career, at various forums. :)
