    Hello, I have submitted my local business to directories however some of the directory's have my phone number with a space, some without space, and also some have no http:// and some do. Does this make a big difference? Thanks

    Also how long till these citations show up on backlinks or google? I seem to have only 1 citation that gave me backlinks, and only 5 citations/directories show up in serp. I have submitted to over 50 directories, not sure why google hasn't picked up on them yet, it's been 2 weeks.

    Citations can take a while to sync up depending on the authority of the citation as far as phone number variation Google will fix that on their end it's built into the algorithm. Backlink value since most of them are no follow depending on what your using to check them will depend on what it shows also you may be waiting for the spiders which is based on authority of domain to index and crawl them.
