I have a question regarding the position of local directories at present and how they can compete with the big players nowadays.
1. With the push of Google Local and Google virtual omnipresence - is there still space for a local business directory?
2. What features and content would such a directory need in order to at least try 'to compete' with Google (Quotation marks used on purpose, but possibly 'supplement' would be better than 'compete':- )
3. Do you know any examples of local directories where such co-existence is possible (please note that I consider ThompsonLocal.com to be a UK wide directory rather than local)
I appreciate all your thoughts on this.
