Seems Amazon is not the only one who is working the local business market. Google has joined with local yellow page companies to develop local business listings.
For $25 a month, local businesses are being given their own online listings that will appear in localized search results at Google.
The joint venture with Yellow Pages and Map Quest begun last year is now employing a salesforce to go door-to-door to increase listings with local merchants.
The search armies are decending folks. And we thought there was going to be a decrease in traffic. With more people listing online that search population will grow with the increased users that go beyond looking at their new listings.
