Citations/ Directory Listings
Citations help validate that your business is part of the Brooklyn community and not someone in another city, state, or country trying to generate business for themselves. A citation helps Google, Bing, Safari, and other search engines confirm that a business is who they say they are. Basically, citations are mentions of your business name and information on other web pages, even if there is not a link attached. Search engines rely on any information they can locate as part of this process. Citations and directory listings are a key component of the ranking algorithms in major search engines.
