Local Search Sites

by Ian Orekondy on March 1, 2007

So Local Search is hot right now, but few know how to harness it’s power. It’s part search, part social media/user-generated content, part yellow pages.

Here’s my current list of local search sites. Please let leave a comment letting us know of any others you use or know of. Thanks!

Google Maps – consolidates info from many of the vertical engines listed below.
Yahoo Local
Mapquest

Yelp.com
insiderpages.com
mojopages.com – I’m the only one in my area on here – please join me!
dine.com – vertical – specific to the restaurant industry
chowhound.com – vertical – specific to the restaurant industry
winespectator.com – vertical – restaurant industry

Especially interesting would be vertical, local search engines for the banking industry.
