Yellow Pages Sites Beat Google in Local Search

by ShannonH 26 April 2012 06:02

All local search sites are created equal, right? Apparently not.

In new research from Implied Intelligence, a company specializing in data-related services for marketers and publishers, Yellow Pages sites beat Google for best overall in leading local search sites.

Implied Intelligence crawled and hand-checked 1,000 independent local business websites in the United States, including Google Maps, YP.com, Yelp, Dexknows and Citysearch. Researchers checked for coverage, duplicated listings, accuracy of information, and the availability of information beyond business name and contact information.

The results are interesting—though not surprising. Yellow Pages sites outperformed all others in terms of low error percentages and duplicated listings. And, in terms of enhanced information YP.com was the winner.  Overall, the research proved that the Yellow Pages delivered higher quality, more accurate data than Google, Bing, City Search, Yelp and Foresquare.

Once again, when it comes to local search, no one does it better than the Yellow Pages. In print or online, the Yellow Pages offer more information than any other resource.
