    A citation is an online reference to your business's name, address and phone number (NAP). Like links to your website, Google uses them when evaluating the online authority of your business. Unlike links though, citations don't need to be linked to your business's website in order for you to be credited for them.

    Citations are Brand Mentions and are important for a different reason. Google looks at these in a more contextual way. Is your brand mentioned in context to the surrounding text and images. Is the citation relevant to your brand and services.
