What's the difference between 'Active Citations' and 'Top Citations'?

Helen Barnes -


'Top Citations' are the most important sites to be listed on. These sites generally have a higher Domain Authority and are the most trusted by search engines like Google.

'Active Citations' are the existing citations we've discovered when the report is run as scheduled, along with any existing citations you may have added to the report manually.
