    A citation tells readers the source for information you have included in your writing, such as your textbook, the lab manual, a reference book or an article published in a journal.

    Citations are defined as mentions of your business name and address on other webpages—even if there is no link to your website. An example of a citation might be an online yellow pages directory where your business is listed, but not linked to. Citations can also be found on local chamber of commerce pages, or on a local business association page that includes your business information, even if they are not linking at all to your website.

    A citation is a reference to the source of information used in your research. Any time you directly quote or paraphrase the essential elements of someone else’s idea in your work, a citation should follow.

    A citation is online references our business’s name, contact number and address. Google uses them when evaluating the online authority of your business. citations don’t need to be link to your business website in the order for you So, having your NAP listed in plain text is fine.

    Citations is one of the ranking factors in Google as well as in Bing. If your business has more citations then there is a possibility of ranking higher in SERPs as compared to business with few citations.

    It is one of the ranking factor. If there are more and more citations there is a possibility of ranking your keywords in SERP.

    References are characterized as notice of your business name and address on different pages regardless of the possibility that there is no connection to your site. A sample of a reference may be an online business catalog registry where your business is recorded, however not connected to. References can likewise be found on nearby council of trade pages, or on a neighborhood business affiliation page that incorporates your business data, regardless of the fact that they are not interfacing at all to your site.

    References are a key segment of the positioning calculations in Google and Bing. Different elements being equivalent, organizations with a more prominent number of references will presumably rank higher than organizations with less references.

    References from entrenched and decently listed entryways (i.e., Superpages.com) help expand the level of sureness the web search tools have about your business' contact data and arrangement. To summarize previous Arizona Cardinals' mentor Dennis Green, references help web crawlers affirm that organizations "are who we thought they were!"

    The Local Search Ranking Factors, citation are one of the most important factors for local businesses to rank and be found online. There are a lot of lists of citation directories and tools to help you find citations (I personally use WhiteSpark which is an amazing tool).

    Most of the time it's the brand mention or anything that comes under a certain brand such as address, logo, name, contact no. personality, etc.

    Citation building is one process under brand management. You will come up with resources that you can use to have your brand or brand properties to be mentioned.
