Are you Searching for Something Local?

Posted by KAT Saturday, July 18, 2009

Whenever I need to find something or somewhere that I am not sure where it is, I usually go online to the local yellowpages and do a search for what I am looking for. This usually helps me find a restaurant or place of business, and will give me driving direction as well as an estimate of how long it will take me to get there.

What I have found that has been an enormous help to me is, Local.com, that helps me in my search for anything that I might be looking for. It is a compilation of Superpages.com, local yellowpages.com, Citysearch.com and Yelp.com all combined into one search that is by far easier for me to find something. Because it has the information of these 4 search engines, this is the only place I go now to find what I need. It is the best at finding all the information you need and also has reviews on certain sites that might come in helpful to you.

My friends and I were supposed to meet at a restaurant in another town, and I did not know the town well at all, or even how to get to the restaurant, so I did a local search for this specific restaurant, and guess what? I got the driving directions and even got to look at the menu online before I went! So, I knew exactly what I was going to order once we got there!

What I love about local.com is that it not only gives you information on what you are looking for, but it also lists other nearby things that might relate to what you are looking for, and it offers discount coupons for things and places in the city or town that you search, (you might want to check this out before you go), and also in addition to the reviews, it has a section dedicated to "local favorites" that have been compiled based on users comments. Your search doesn't have to stop at restaurants though, you can search for anything you want, including (but not limited to) pets and supplies, car dealers, florists, movie theaters, lawyers, and so much more!! And once you put into the search your town/city and keyword, it will pull up the information you need to help you.

Why not give local.com a try and see what I mean? This may end up being the only search you use from now on!!

Till Next Time,
Take Care,
