Long Island, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
Yellow Pages Directory Inc. has announced today that it has acquired all of the assets and website of InteractiveCities.com. The Yellow Pages Directory Inc. plans to “go green” with its online version of the Yellow Pages and they feel this is the most efficient way to do it. Management at the Yellow Page Directory decided that it is in its best interest to acquire an existing database of businesses rather than building them over time. Now with this acquisition the Yellow Pages Directory will have over 27 million businesses, a rating system, and a seamless way for users to add their businesses in one simple step. In addition to the database of businesses, the new company will now have achieved their number one goal, which is to be completely online and accessible, without the wasted printing of millions of Yellow Pages books nationwide.
Interactive Cities has a long history of being a “green” alternative to the existing Yellow Pages business model of mailing out books. Millions of trees are cut down every year, fulfilling the unnecessary practice of mailing out Yellow Pages books to a half of a billion people. In the modern age, it’s hard to believe this is still done every year and these numbers are just in the United Sates alone. As a result, Interactive Cities has shown an unprecedented amount of growth since its inception, this is especially more prevalent in the last few years while people are more motivated in looking for greener ways to do business. Just in the last few months alone, traffic to the Interactive Cities website was up approximately 50% month over month. This is a tremendous amount of growth for a website that is in an industry which is repeatedly getting cluttered with online directories, that provide little to no value.
In a statement from the CEO Michael Keegan, “We are very proud of our acquisition of Interactive Cities. We feel that with the name recognition of the Yellow Pages Directory and the sophistication and ease of use of the website Interactive Cities will make the combination of the two a powerhouse in the online Yellow Pages search community.” Along with the database of 27 million businesses the Yellow Pages Directory has ownership of dozens of web names which include: YellowPagesIncorporated.com, YellowPageBusinessDirectory.com, and the YellowPagesLLC.com. Michael Keegan states, “The many web names that Interactive Cities owns, the branding of going green, and the online business directory has created an opportunity for us to provide a greater value to the existing advertiser base.” Right now the website is free of charge but the company is not sure how long that will last. Many submissions are made each and every day and it might not be long before a small fee is attached to new submissions, for businesses that want to be added to the site. Michael Keegan says, “This is a great opportunity for any small business to get a free ad on the Yellow Pages Directory website. Once the business is added, we don't anticipate any further charges, so I suggest that you add your business right away.”
There is no telling where Interactive Cities and the Yellow Pages Directory will be in the next five years, but with such a head start on the competition it would be no surprise to see this company become one of the largest online directories on the Internet today.
