Yellow Page Listings for all of the Businesses in your City or Town...Instant
We provide the
only business directory that is PRELOADED with all of your city or town's
business listings. Users can search by category or business name and find
the addresses, phone numbers, maps & directions to every business in your area.
Most websites charge $1000's of dollars to license this information alone, but
we have included it in your city guide FOR NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE!
Locality Feature Allows Visitors to
"Go Local" and Narrow Search Results to their Part of Town
This incredible feature allows your website visitors to
view only the listings in a particular area (or locality) of
your city. After your website is set up, you decide
how you want to divide your city - by neighborhoods or
areas, cardinal directions, whatever you think would make it
easy for your visitors to recognize. Then using our
handy zip code map, just assign zip codes to each of your
localities and this powerful feature will allow your
visitors to really "Go Local!".
Offer the most powerful advertising package in town
with the Featured Business Showcase
When one of your website visitors searches your business
directory, all of your "Featured Businesses"
(Business who have paid to be Featured) will be listed
at the top of the results. Their listing stands out
from the crowd in a gold box, and provides a link to their
"Business Showcase" page (more information on Business
Showcases & what it includes below)

visitors can check out local news, look for a new home, or

desire, or create a link to another website such as the
Chamber of Commerce or Visitor's Bureau. We've given
you room to make your website grow so that there is always
something new an interesting for your visitors!
The reason that our city guides offer the
best online business opportunity out there is our powerful business
