    International Citations - Anyone have a source?

    Does anyone have a list of directories that accept local international businesses? I have a customer in Indonesia that needs some citations and it seems most of the major directories only accept US and a handful of other countries.

    Terima Kasih!

    Good question Dino! I too am looking forward to some answers and recommendations, as I wasn't able to find many citation sources for businesses based in Germany and Austria.

    Re: International Citations - Anyone have a source?

    First, I went directly to Yahoo Local, Superpages, yp.com, Citysearch and a few others and was unsuccessful.

    Then, I searched for my keyword and location and just looked through the first ten pages or so. Often directories are listed within organic search results. Unfortunately, I was only able to come up with Trip Advisor and Viator (my cleint is in the travel industry) and I've already got those covered.

    I can look through each directory to see if they accept international listings, but I was hoping someone would have a list to save me some time.

    I'll post here if I find it. Please let me know if you find anything, too.

    Thanks!

    Hi Dino and apolodor,

    Moved this thread to our Citations Forum where you'll find a few resources.

    This thread has a few good ones I think: Local Search In Other Countries

    And here's another: Local Citation Sources for Australia, Germany, and New Zealand

    Re: International Citations - Anyone have a source?

    Hi Dino,

    Some time ago I wrote an article (part of a series) covering the local citation sources in Australia, New Zealand, and Germany, but at the bottom I also included some general citation sources that are available in large parts of the world, such as Manta, Brownbook, HotFrog, Cylex, Yalwa. I do believe some of these are also available in Indonesia. For a more thorough list, you'd need to specify the category of business you are looking for help for. If the business is in the tourism niche, the list could be pretty long. In any other niche, I don't really think you will have many opportunities, and if I were you, I would have been looking for other types of citation sources ("unstructured" ones). I live in Malaysia, and here besides a handful of business directories, there is absolutely no other way to get structured citations.

    The article is below:

    Re: International Citations - Anyone have a source?

    Thanks to both of you. I will check out those resources.

    @Linda, I did it again. One day I will post my comments in the right forum. I promise

    @Nyagoslav, thanks for the resources. I have been working on unstructured citations to some degree. Glad you suggest it as well. Fortunately, we are in the travel niche and so we are not completely without citation sources. And, I have yet to get to Malaysia. Maybe I'll hit you back up again before my next trip and you can suggest a few good places. Heard good things.

    Regards,

    Thanks Nyag, I cited your article in both links above too.

    Dino in case you have not realized yet, Nyag is the man when it comes to anything citation oriented and knows more than anyone I know about international citations specifically too.

    Re: International Citations - Anyone have a source?

    Yeah, I know about this guy...

    I was a level 7 in the Google Places forum when I saw him beginning to answer questions as a level 1. Wondered who this guy was, so damn smart, making the rest of us look bad. Next thing I know, he's a level 8 and I was still a level 7. What really struck me was how "right on the mark" his answers and advice was. How could this guy know so much in such a short period of time? Then he's being quoted by Mike in his blog, becomes a Top Contributor and gets included in David's Local Search Ranking Factors list (along with you).

    I always like the people who walk the walk as well as talk the talk. Hats off to both of you.

    Ya I know he just shot right up out of nowhere, huh?

    Nyag, in addition to his many other talents, is also a master at how to build an expert reputation in a short period of time. I bet he could sell a course about that to local search consultants.

    (We're talkin' bout ya Nyag, but it's all good!)
