Top Canadian Citation and Directory Sites

Here are some great top citation sites and directory sites with good trust flow from Majestic SEO, Moz domain trust/authority, and Ahrefs domain rating. This is a sampling of Canadian directories we use for our SEO clients.

Use these directories to help your local search listing in Google and other search engines. Make sure you use the same NAP in each (that is name, address, and phone number.) Also use your preferred domain in the link to your website.

  1. Foursquare: You can't get much higher and better with a local directory site than this. This citation has an 85 Majestic trust flow and equally high Moz and Ahref ratings. You can get a free listing, but I recommend paying the $20 one time fee for a business listing. This is a very reasonable price for such a quality directory. Make the free listing on Foursquare's add a business page. You'll be asked if you want to pay...I'd do it. Check your listing often, sometimes a competitor may mark it closed erroneously.
  2. 411.ca: Another must as far as Canadian business directories go. We buy this citation for all our SEO clients who get the premium package. If you pay for three months, you'll get a permanent listing. There are also free listings. Here is their business listing submission page.
  3. Canadian Business Directory: I love this directory for its attractive, simple, but professional format and reasonably high Majestic, Moz, and Ahref ratings. It is easy to submit to. You can get a free listing, but for only $4.95 you'll get a much quicker response, which is well worth it. This is their submission page.
  4. Industry Canada: This is an awesome citation to have since it is a government site and is free. We get it for all our clients, with their approval, of course.. Go here to submit. The submission process a bit confusing for our clients. There are many long forms and different choices. That is why we submit for them or help with the process. If you are an agency submitting it for a client they will contact the client to get the go ahead, so make sure you tell your client beforehand.
  5. Yelp: This is a high ranking and well-used site that will bring you traffic and clients and help your position in search results. You need to verify with a phone number. Claim or submit your business listing here.
  6. Localsites.ca: This site is easy to submit to and it has high trust flow. The drawback is that the free listing can take weeks. The paid listing is only $9.95 however. Add your site here.
  7. Mister What: This a Canadian version of the US Mister What. Its trust flow in 34 which moderately high.Go here to find out more.
