Can't add 'Local Listing' on live.com for UK Business

Hi,

I am trying to list a UK business under the 'Local Listings' section of Live Search and I can't figure out how to do it regardless of how much searching I do, however, I can find a page to submit a US business without any trouble.

Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong please?

Many thanks

Ollie

Hi Olliem,

Unfortunately, we currently do not support local listings outside of the US. However, I believe the local listings team is working to expand this in the near future.

@msndude - where does Live Local retrieve the list of businesses it displays on searches?

I just type in "trade" in "City" and I get great local results in the UK, MSNDude - with maps and diretions links etc, so you DO have UK local search results. Fuzzone's question is a good one... where do the local results come from?

bump...

MSNDude, if I do a 'service town' in the UK I'm seeing UK websites and there are Local/Maps results at the top of the page. You can click through to view the Local/Maps results and for the term I tried there were 5 pages of results.

So how are they getting there?

There are options to edit existing listings.

Most of those are from vendors. It should list the vendor in the result. If you don't see the vendor name, please provide me with an URL/example. I might be able to give you the name.
