Furthermore, Interchange is able to provide complementary local advertiser listings directly to its IYP partners, thereby more effectively monetizing existing IYP search traffic.

Hopefully, they'll get those issues types of issues corrected, but at least they are expanding and trying new things.
I thought this quote was interesting until I tried it and it brought back the same results as anyone else.
The company's patent-pending Keyword DNA technology utilizes business characteristics such as location, service area, and business-specific keywords, among other data, to create a unique local keyword profile for each of the 10 million U.S. businesses. This enables consumers to search directly for specific products and services rather than navigating through the IYP/YP category structure.
I took it to mean that I could search for maybe 'toys' as a keyword and get toy stores but I get no results. Not even a WalMart. I tried a half dozen or so different words and got very little if any results.
Keyword DNA technology enables you to search for a product in a particular geographic area. For instance, if you are looking for "burrito," instead of searching for [Restaurants-Mexican; Dallas; TX], you may simply type in "burrito in Dallas."
Once all of the categories and business listings are loaded the product will be in production. In the meantime we appreciate your feedback and please keep the comments coming.
I also noticed how slow the map feature was. It's because the maps are being drawn from the free map server at the census bureau.
