Consistent citations such as NAP (name, address, and phone number) across all of your listings is an essential part of optimising your local searches.

If you change any of your business details, such as your address, or phone number, these changes must be reflected in all of your business listings.

This is because new listings will automatically be generated with this information, so it needs to be correct in order to attract new customers.
