Citations in SEO are mentions of your business name and address on other webpages, this mention may or may not include a link to your website. An example would be an online yellow pages where your business is listed but not linked to or the local chamber of commerce site which lists your business and information along with other area businesses.

Citations can play an important role in your ranking for big search engines. Businesses with more citations frequently rank higher, given other factors are equal. More citations allow the search engines to be certain that you are who, and where, they thought you were.

When possible, citations should include:
Name of business
Business phone number
Business website url
Main keywords
Appropriate business category placement

Citations are local online business listings and come into play with what is known as "local search". Local search focuses more on your local business directory listings than on your website's organic listings.

Citation is nothing but listing our business details like business name, logo, address, contact no on 3rd party websites. This helps in ranking your site in top in search engines. Also as we develop our company profile in other high page rank websites, our site will also get Page rank through it.
