In episode 98 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about using area-specific citation sites and adding 2 location-specific citations to a SameAs attribute in the header of a website.
The exact question was:
Hi guys hope you’re all doing great. First of all, I would like to say thank you for all the hard work you guys put in. It’s of extreme high quality and I have learnt a ton of very useful information from the SM crew. With your information, Humpdays and IFTTT courses I’ve got my first Lead Gen site to number 17 in 6 or 7 weeks – brand new domain for a roofing term, which is very exciting, so thanks for that!
My question is about the value of less powerful but highly relevant links. I’ve watched every Humpday Hangout and I have heard you talk a lot about relevance.
I have found 2 citation sites that are specific to the area I am trying to rank in but these are not powerful sites like Yelp or Yell for example, are these 2 sites worth it and if so would you advise adding these 2 location-specific citations to my schema same as attribute in my header? Thanks.
