We have a website that, I guess, could be 'classified' as a "vertical". We started one year ago. Our objective was to fulfil a specific need. That need was to provide our users with access to other users' recommendations of [...] service providers in their local area. Because we are exclusively focused on just one industry and are not targeting an entire galaxy of professional service providers our users are paying more attention to us then to some of the established and formidable competitors (including citysearch).
