The findings are based on a qualitative comparison of Internet Yellow Pages providers against local search services in terms of both breadth of content and ease-of-use.
Heck, even make the local sites YP/IYP affiliates so that the local sites start referring the IYPs advertising sign-ups.
Of course, the YPs may have to slim down their on the street sale force a bit, but that's inevitible.
The YP industry is about the dumbest big industry I've seen in awhile. They have been soooooo asleep at the wheel, letting the SEs eat their lunch for years. Now they want to play catch-up and I still think they are several hints shy of having a serious clue about what to do.
Dinosaurs of their own volition.
