How many directories and citation sites can you list on?

Mathew Coghlan -


We have a database of over 1,500 known citation-generating sites. These sites consist of local directories, general directories, niche directories & event sites.

We've identified sites that are now part of our database through extensive research into which sites appear in Google’s citation index. We now edit & update this list with intelligence gathered from out CitationTracker tool.

All the sites we submit to offer free submission/listing which allows us to keep campaign costs low. We gather additional data about these diectories/sites such as their Domain Authority (i.e. Page Rank) and apply our own Citation Value rating based on our research.

We prioritise the directories based on their citation value (high value first) and also if they offer an instant listing or fast listing.
