Enhanced Online Postal Code Lookup Utility Launches at Postalcodelookup.ca

Share Article

While some search engines and online phone directories have made it possible to dig around for postal code, zip code and area code information, none has created a unique application for this purpose. Steve Canning of the Canada-based Dynamic Site Studio recognized this need and launched his own user-oriented online utility at postalcodelookup.ca, allowing visitors to make quick work of researching US and Canadian mailing codes, telephone area codes and other geographical data.

Rather than sift through the first dozen or so of thousands of poor quality matches, they can use our free postal code lookup feature and go directly to the exact results they're seeking.

The ever-increasing speed and ease of access to the Internet has made the World Wide Web the runaway favorite when it comes to research in the 21st century. Yet in spite of this, many common research tasks remain ill-served by leading search engines like Google and Ask.com. Steve Canning, owner of the Web development firm Dynamic Site Studio, found that a casual postal code lookup using search engines was so inefficient that he quickly built his own at postalcodelookup.ca.

The postal zip code utility at postalcodelookup.ca allows users to quickly find complete mailing and geographical data in the United States and Canada. Even when only partial information is available, users can enter incomplete zip or postal codes and browse through an alphabetized list of matches that includes city names, states or provinces, counties, time zones, telephone area codes, maps and complete postal or zip codes.

Users can access the same information at postalcodelookup.ca by searching based on city names or telephone area codes. An area code search yields a comprehensive list of all cities and towns in the specified area as well as a total city count.

"When users try to search for this information with traditional search engines, particularly when they only have partial numbers, the results are often largely irrelevant," explains Canning. "Rather than sift through the first dozen or so of thousands of poor quality matches, they can use our free postal code lookup feature and go directly to the exact results they're seeking."

In addition to the postal zip code lookup capabilities of postalcodelookup.ca, the site lists all of its data in easy-to-browse directories that can be useful for compiling mailing lists or conducting other geographical research. A supplemental postal Web directory contains links to sites offering related services and information. The postal Web directory categories include address directories, direct mailing lists and postage stamps.

Canning's Dynamic Site Studio is centered on the belief that the World Wide Web should serve as an endless source of valuable and free information, rather than simply as a vast advertising medium.
