Benefits of YouPage
What makes YouPage different?
YouPage is your Semantic Web local business, service and events search engine. The unique way we publish local directory information on the internet means any search engine can make use of the system. This freedom from a conventional silo approach to local search makes for the greatest reach for your local information on the internet.
I already have my website submitted with a variety of search engines, why should I also use YouPage?
Sometimes people searching on the web locally know what they're looking for. In that instance keyword based search is adequate. What happens when people don't know what they are looking for and want to discover something locally? The YouPage local directory system is built on the concept of adding exact meaning to your business listing and thus fits seamlessly alongside your current search marketing methods, adding local presence to your existing keyword and or tag based search strategy. At the micro level your information can be associated with a local area. At the macro level the information is still accessible to anyone on the internet. We believe this will add an extra channel to aid in boosting your site traffic.
I don't currently have a website, Can I use YouPage?
Yes. Simply fill in as much information for your business listing as you can.
How can YouPage benefit my local business?
The ever increasing amount of homes with PCs and the low cost availability if high speed broadband internet access have led to the widespread adoption of the internet and made it a daily information resource for a large segment of the population. Due to the fact that many consumers shop online then buy offline has made the internet an important marketing tool for local business.
