YellowSpaces Offers More Relevant Local Search Experience for Consumers Nationwide

New Localeze Confidence Score Increases Accurate Search Results

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 6, 2009) - YellowSpaces™, a new local search engine focused on relevant searches, announced its formal launch to advertisers and consumers today. Refining the technology of local search for businesses, products, or services, YellowSpaces -- -- makes it easier to find accurate local businesses across the nation.

Constantin S. Manta, founder and principal officer of YellowSpaces Inc., says, "When searching locally online, consumers today get dozens of results but have no way of identifying what is specifically relevant for them. YellowSpaces is focused on providing the most relevant and meaningful searches with its YellowRank™ relevancy algorithm, the most comprehensive databases, and a host of state of the art features. This means that no matter where you are in the U.S. -- you can conduct an accurate local search anywhere in the country. It's like having local yellow pages from every community nationwide sitting next to your computer."

YellowSpaces works closely with Localeze, the largest online content manager that provides comprehensive listing profiles of more than 16 million local businesses to YellowSpaces' search platform. In addition, YellowSpaces is one of the first local search companies to use the new Confidence Score from Localeze as part of its overall YellowRank relevancy algorithm.

Each business is provided a score that assesses the validity of its name, phone number, and address. The score offers YellowSpaces users a high level of confidence when conducting a local search. Businesses are rated in a range of scores from 0 to 100. A higher Confidence Score means more reliable business information.

"Localeze is excited about working with YellowSpaces and its innovative search platform," said Gib Olander, director of business development at Localeze. "By delivering reliable business listings to consumers who are ready to buy, the Confidence Score built into the YellowSpaces offerings helps local businesses produce repeat business from satisfied consumers."

Local search is the fastest growing aspect of core searches on the Web. "The Kelsey Group projects U.S. local search revenues growing rapidly from $2.8 billion in 2008 to $8.1 billion in 2013," said Peter Krasilovsky, vice president and program director, The Kelsey Group. "The underlying factors are simple enough. Local search will be driven by the activities of local businesses, which will make a sustained effort to build web sites, promote them, add content, and actively manage their online presence. It all adds up to more search."
