Canadian Citations — Mid-Year Updates!

After the half-year mark around July 1st or so, our thoughts turned back to Canadian citations…and we were a bit surprised to learn that our own working master Canadian citation list has changed somewhat so we thought we’d update that list right here!

First, let us begin with the best of all original lists for Canadian citations, from David Mihm the well-known and respected LOCAL SEO expert, which can still be found here…. 

This list was the basis for our own listings, i.e. we very much liked that David had taken the time to look into our Canadian marketplace and give all of us Canadian SEO types a list to make our forays into the world of LOCAL search, so this is a solid beginning, eh!

Next, we added to that in our own blog posting here….back in November of last year, and those three additions are still solid citation performers as we’ve learned over the past 8 months for our own client listings. Dev Basu, another well known SEO practitioner who works out of  the Toronto area, also updated the listings for Canadian citations right here…and they too were added to our own master list which we’ve updated here for all you DIY Canadian SEO types, eh! 

Note too, that in our listing below we’ve found a few “new” ones to be added….so our own mid-year 2010 Canadian citations list now includes 28 working citations listings….here in Canada.

A note please on the layouts below which “do” include PageRank, Google’s proprietary ranking method on it’s own algo to measure the “value” of the link from each of these citation domains. As we’ve long ago learned that PR does NOT help in gaining you any serp traction, we do find — but as yet can’t truly correlate same — that PR does count it appears for LOCAL search linkjuice. We can not as yet “get” the value of that factor as it appears that for some of our clients, the juice from a PR of 8 does NOT get added to gain any more client channel traction…yet somehow a lower PR of 5 does! We don’t know why. We, like the rest of the SEO world, test and only believe empircal values…but that’s a whole other blog post, eh!

So here’s the latest list, our new Master Canadian citations listings for mid-year 2010!

Where.ca Where.Ca 5
ZipLocal Zip Local 5
YLM Canada YLM Canada 5
N49 N49 4
CanadaDirect CanadaDirect 4
BuyItCanada BuyItCanada 4
Zoomit ZoomIt 4

That’s pretty much, what we’ve found working here in google.ca land…we have succcessfully used them all, as shown, for various clients in many channels here in Canada and while we know that this list is a “working” list only….i.e. your own mileage may vary, we trust these enough to publish them here for all to see…and use! And if you DO find others, add them to the comment section here for us all to test against, if you will please? Would help all us SEO types, eh!
