There are hundreds of online directories, many of which list local businesses. Some people prefer to use these lesser known websites to research the details and rankings of the business they are interested in. A business listing is called a “citation”. Once on a directory, searchers can then use keywords to find the various businesses in the niche, such as veterinarian, veterinary clinic, animal hospital, pet immunizations, canine rehabilitation, etc. Below is a small sample of directory websites that list Mount Pleasant Animal Hospital. We did not list the larger directories that you might be familiar like Yelp, Foursquare, and Manta.
