Here is Part V of our seven (7) part series
here’s how it works: Local.com lists businesses by name, address and phone number.
It has syndication agreements with search engines like Google and Yahoo! and also partners with other directories like Superpages.com and Yelp to exchange information and customer reviews.
For a fee, companies can enhance their listings with more in-depth descriptions of products and services, as well as receive premium placement in Local.com’s search function.
Local.com also confers with local Better Business Bureaus to ensure that businesses are in good standing. For more information go to www.local.com
Here’s what it costs: Premium service runs between $50 and $200 per month, depending on the number of search categories and locations.
For instance, you might pay the base fee to appear in a search for “Bowling Center, Manhattan,” but more for the broader “Entertainment, New York City.”
