A Local directory with more information

Yellowpages is where most of us go to in search of a place or a service. Though useful, it would be a better site if there is more information available to complete our search.
There is now an improved search engine. Local.com is a local search engine which is a hybrid combining information from Citysearch.com, Yelp.com, Yellowpages.com, and Superpages.com.

What this means is that you need only visit one site to view contents from all these sites. For instance, a local restaurant search will give you all the local restaurants available in the city. Not only that, you can find a whole lot of information including accurate driving directions, business contact information, as well as an aggregate of reviews from mulitple sites -- essentially a one-stop shop for finding local businesses and services. Users can also contribute and share their own reviews. You can also find local events, local coupons for shopping and local favorites.

If you're in the US, Local.com is really a helpful information resource. This local yellowpages makes searching for something or someplace such a breeze.


  1. yeah, yellow pages only gives the telephone number.. but i guess nowadays we will just go online and google for anything we want right?? :p

  2. Frankly, Yellowpages leaves much to be desired. Besides, it's quite difficult to navigate to find what you want.
