What are Old Citations and how are they gathered?

Mathew Coghlan -


Old Citations are citations that are being listed with your old business name or/and zip code. Let’s say you changed your business name or moved – all your current citations automatically lose value for your local business as they still carry the old business information.

We are using your old business name or/and zip code to detect any old citations that you have. When creating a new report or editing an existing one – you can choose an option ‘Would you like to look for old or incorrect citations?’ and enter your old business information there.
