Local Search and Valley Yellow Pages

by ShannonH 14 December 2011 12:23

According to, 74 percent of consumers looking for information related to local businesses online utilize a search engine such as Google. While this is good news for SEO keyword writers and search engine companies in general, it's not such good news for small businesses looking to draw in local customers.

Why? Search engines don't really do local searches very well. By design, they're better at capturing keywords related to your business as a whole, not your business as a local entity. For instance, a so-called local search for auto mechanics might bring up shops from a 40-mile radius or greater. That's not very local, is it?

The same article notes that by 2015, revenue generated by local search will soar to $8.2 billion. How can you position your business to attract some of that revenue? By utilizing the Valley Yellow Pages in conjunction with, you'll target your marketing to the customers you want — local people, looking for local services.

San Francisco Tourist

by ShannonH 14 December 2011 12:01

This is the story of a tourist. A tourist in San Francisco. A tourist with a smartphone, but no familiarity with the city. One morning back at her hotel, she noticed the diamond was coming loose from the setting on her ring. What could she do? Her trusted jeweler was 3,000 miles away back home. Her phone pulled up a list of jewelers in the San Francisco area — hundreds. How would she know who to trust? But, there in the dresser, was a copy of the Valley Yellow Pages. She picked it up, flipped to "J" and quickly found one on the same street as her hotel — one that specialized in repairing diamond rings. A phone call and a walk up the street later, she had her beloved diamond ring back on her finger and was ready to see the sights.

Big city. Big choices. When you need to know who to trust, choose the only directory with the experience to bring consumers and businesses together in the easiest way possible — the printed Valley Yellow Pages.
