    Hi, im having hard time finding spanish citations sites beacuse of language barrier.

    I need them for one of my client.

    Maybe someone can help me and give me some spanish citations sites, better if they have some authority so i can later blast them without tanking them or my site.

    Thank you.

    You may just be having problems finding spanish citation sites out there because very few exist. It all depends on how many spanish webmasters end up starting free business directories. Have you used something like Whitespark for competitive research?

    The notion that "the more citations the better" is false.
    Do an analysis of your client's local competition and make certain that you have all the citations that their competitors have, plus whatever significant citations they may not have and that's that.
    It's a complete waste of time to have 500 no-name citations from no where that do nothing for no businesses anywhere.

    Do a Google search of the phone number of the #1 local business for your client; their biggest competitor. the citations that do not show up in the search do not count as citations. This is what none of the "citation zealots" don't know, and cannot tell you. They've read so much stupidity about "citations are just like backlinks" that they've come to believe it, and take all the wrong and stupid information that may or may not have EVER applied to backlinks and are conflating that and claiming that they apply to citations, and they never did, they never will and there's nothing in common between backlinks and citations except for the hoards of drooling retards that think that they're the same.

    Billy, I agree with you on some of your points but others you're off base.



    Match and exceed is a good strategy, I agree.



    You're misguided here. If none of the major competition has verified the business with something like Manta or Bing, does that make these citations any less effective? No.

    What the competition has doesn't quite dictate what is a citation or not.



    I have ranked businesses in the 7 box with absolutely nothing except citations over the course of a few months. When it comes to trying to get a spot in local maps listings, structured citations are in fact better than backlinks.

    you can easily get Spanish citations. some directories support it worldwide and you can do any country citations on it. did you try brightlocal citations tracker yet? or googling it will take more time.

    Use Whitespark's local citations finder tool. It will help you a lot and it is not very much expensive as well.
