    I am starting my own local SEO company, but what I was wondering is since I don't have my own office and I'm just doing it out of my house for right now, should I put down my address for citations, or should I just not do them?

    Also, what phone service could I use so I don't have to put my own phone number down? Preferably a 1800 number. Looks more professional in my opinion.

    Can you not buy a mail box/business address? Don't use your home address for anything. You never know who you're going to piss off in SEO. Could just be if you out rank #2...Not worth the risk.

    I pay £20 per month to use it as a registered business address and they forward mail onto me. It's bang in the centre of my city, I can use their office for £10per hour and I bought an 0800 (same as you 1800) number for £5pm.

    If you can't get a mailbox then get a virtual office address! Every country has those

    So you use a PO box for your business address? I never thought about that. I'll have to look into it. Also, I would like a 1800 number that I can use on my cell phone, or an app maybe. That way when I'm out and about I can answer calls and stuff.

    Definitely PO box or virtual office address would make you look more professional - just google it theres loads of online services that offer this, Bongo being one, if you are in the US.

    As for a virtual phone number, thats easy as well, just google it and you can get a number that forwards calls to a number of your choice.

    This company for example have a really cheap GEO call forwarding service:

    And there are loads more.

    Get a P.O. box. You shouldn't use your home address anyway. You need to keep that private. You want a solid business address.
