Hey,

My brother has a small electrical contracting company here in the UK, I've recently been trying to hep him rank better and show up in the 3 pack. I did some analysis of the competition and seen they all had less than 100 citations.

So I decided to build around a 150 citations (which I outsourced) this was about 2 weeks ago, I did a search using whitespark and only 4 citations show up, does google have to index them before the'll show?

I understand SEO is a slow process and does take time, I'm just needing clarifications on how citations work and if they should show immediately or not.

Thanks

    Maybe setup a Google Alert, let Google notify you when they find your citation footprint.

    You can also search footprints directly on Google SERPs.
