Why I Don’t Recommend Yellowpages.com – An Insider’s View
As many of you know, I left AT&T Advertising & Publishing in 2008 to start my own business, Get on the Map Local Search Marketing. I had been a top producer, several times named to the CEO’s list of the top 5% of the sales reps in the nation. But as the usage of the print yellow pages declined, and AT&T tried to move clients into online products, I no longer believed we were doing a good service for our customers.
Yellowpages.com started out as a good idea. Help local customers find local businesses that can provide them with service. But their glory days were over when Google introduced the Google Local Business Center with the Google Map.
In researching the results that other businesses have experienced when they compare Google results and yellowpages.com, I found this interesting video. Let me know what you think.
Although this video refers to Australia, I think the numbers are similar, in fact they might be worse.
