Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I found it while trying to figure out how to get my business into Acxiom, DeepData and infoUSA databases. Sadly, it did not answer my question (e.g. where do I advertise if I want to end up in all three databases? Must I go Yellow, or will White do? Can I go with a 'B' directory, or must I pay full fare at the ILEC?). But it has a lot of good background.
This forum celebrated 6 months of activity recently so I created a list of significant topics that had cropped up. As you missed the posts on what was above you may want to read:
Your thinking about this in the right way. Consistant and accurate distribution of core business data is of much benefit to a business with respect to local search.
The business I'm working with has a main office, but customers are not served at the office. The actual business is conducted at 45 separate brick & mortar pickup kiosks, none of which have telephones.
The main office shows up two or three times in most IYP's (the current address, and an old satellite office that had a phone). But the kiosk locations are unknown. SBC quotes $12/month for a single line YP listing. But that's more money than I can spend on an experiment that won't yeild results for at least a year (if ever).
