Is Google Directory Business and Economy something we pay to go in? I came across this by accident and wonder why not one firm comes up under my keyterm search, though a long list of advertisers do in the right hand column. (see link below)
Also, i know there are methods to find out what keywords are being used for particular searches, but is there a way to localise this to say, a state in australia?
Google directory search is a very useful tool -- but, I believe, not heavily used. Like any complex tool, it takes some practice to know how to use it, and some experience to know when to use it. Few people bother.
