Hancock County, OH (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
A recent study shows that 80% of residents in Hancock, Seneca & Wyandot Counties, Ohio use the print yellow pages first when looking for local business information.
Residents were asked if they used their local yellow pages or the internet first when searching for a local business. The study showed 53% used the yellow pages first in Carey, 83% in Findlay, 76% in Fostoria, 83% in Sycamore, 78% in Tiffin and 83% in Upper Sandusky.
Overall the study revealed 80% use the yellow pages first, 20% use the internet first, 97% use both, 3% use the internet only and 25% do not have internet access at home.
“These studies confirm what those of us in the yellow page industry already know – yellow pages remain an important consumer resource alongside the internet,” said Terry Pacelli, Vice President of Haines Publishing, Inc. “People are using their local print yellow pages to find local businesses.”
