Than again maybe not

Six months ago, after 7+ years of being in business I finally got around to incorporating Local SEO Guide, Inc. A few weeks ago, I thought it would be interesting to create a Yext Powerlisting for the biz and see what happened. Today when I checked the indexation, I realized that given the freshness combined with the low level of activity around that business name, the rankings of the various directories for my business name should reveal the relative SEO strengths of each directory that had the listing, particularly for SEO-related queries.

So without further ado, I give you the definitive, ultra, Mashable-Reddit-Upworthy ready list:

The Top 10 Local Citation Sources for SEO:

  1.  Yelp
  2. (powered by MojoPages)
  3. Switchboard
  4. Merchant Circle
  5. (powered by
  6. (powered by

If you want to see the rest of the list, here’s the SERP – remember to use an Incognito Browser.

And I know – the results are biased towards Yext publishers, but if sites like can’t even pick up a new business listing within six months, well, that ain’t my problem.
