As you probably already know, there are lots of directory sites out there. There is no shortage of them. Now, you may be thinking, considering the amount of other directory websites all over the internet, why put up a new one? Well, as you can tell, we’re not happy with the quality of a lot of the sites and directory resources that you typically find with a Google search.
Dime a Dozen
It’s easy for many consumers to think that directory sites are a dime a dozen. This is exactly the kind of mindset that we would like to correct because we beg to differ strongly regarding the dismissive attitude too many consumers have regarding the directory format.
Our Information Format
We are firm believers in this information format. We believe that it has a lot of power, it has a lot of potential and, unfortunately, a lot of the websites out there simply fail to step up to the tremendous amount of information power and ability to reach out and enlighten people. This is why we have stepped up and put up our own website.
We differ tremendously from the vast majority of directory sites out there. If you’ve ever wondered why they tend to look alike, it’s because most of them use the same script. There are really only about 3 to 5 software scripts that power almost all directory resources on the internet. The number of scripts that formed the heart and soul of these websites can be counted with one hand.
They are Identical
Given such template-driven software, it’s not a surprise that a lot of these websites, except for a few minor changes here and there, are all but identical. In fact, some operators even pull from the same database. Can you imagine that? They basically are using and reusing the same information over and over again. To say that this format is greatly abused would be to put it mildly.
This is why we have decided to come up with our own unique version of the directory information format. That’s how we define it. It’s not a website, it’s not a specific online property, it’s a way of organizing information so people from all over the world can benefit from that information. That is our guiding principle. That is our mission and vision statement.
Simply put, we want to take the directory information format to the next level. We want it to live up to its fullest potential. This is why we have come up with a nice list of different features. When you check out our resource and spend even the smallest amount of time here, these differences would jump out at you. They’re hard to miss. In fact, it’s impossible to miss these differences.
OUR CATEGORIES ADDRESS ACTUAL NEEDS!
The first thing that makes us different from our competition is that when we create categories, we focus on the actual needs of consumers all over the world. These are flesh and blood human beings with actual needs and wants!!
Old Directory Tree
We let this human based need system guide us instead of just simply recycling the same directory tree system formulated by a software template from a long time ago. It’s anybody’s guess whether that tree system even addresses actual needs. A lot of them seem very limited. A lot of them tend to be very shallow.
What we do
Our Site Drills Deep
If you’ve ever clicked through our categories here, do you notice that you go from main category, subcategory, sub-subcategory, and deeper and deeper? This is for a reason. It’s because we know that people tend to navigate information, based on related categories. That’s how our minds work.
And it really annoys us to no end to see other websites completely miss this. A lot of other directory websites out there don’t even factor this in. Instead, they have a category, a subcategory, and they stop at the third level.
Other websites commit the mistake from the other extreme, which is, they drill down so deeply and so unnecessarily that you end up confused. You’re kind of like asking, okay, since this is such a deep subcategory, how does it relate to everything else? Context is lost. We fall into that trap. All our category system is logical and natural.
We Address Local Concerns
In this day and age, thanks to the rise of mobile apps and tablets, a lot of searches are actually purely local in nature. These are people looking for local pizza shops, people looking for local tire repair shops, etc. Given the rise of local needs, we have dedicated a large chunk of these websites to local merchants and service providers.
Our Listings are Thorough and Clear
If you want to put up a listing here, you have to follow strict rules. That’s the bottom line. In other words, the information has to be standardized in such a way that it also teases very important pieces of information from you. We’re not just looking for name, address and phone number. Instead, we ask for information that people are actually interested in. This is information that is at the back of their minds.
Our Listings Give You Enough Information So You Can Make an Informed Decision
The bottom line to this website is that it lists information that is positioned and laid out in a way so people can make an informed decision. It’s all about you making the right decision, and it’s very hard to do that if you don’t have access to the right information. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
We have set up our questionnaire system, as well as our database system to make this information stand out. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon to dig through and read between the lines. We spare you all of that unnecessary hassle and give you a standardized format so you can get the information you need to make a good decision.
All Our Links are Up to Date
Thanks to our internal software system, we constantly test all the links in our database. If somebody puts in a link to a local website, we make sure that that website is still up. Our software checks the validity of all links on a 24-hour, 7-day, 365-day basis. Also, we rely on our global user base to actively report bad links or misleading links.
We Actively Seek Out Social Media Linkages
We understand the role of social media because if you’re thinking of doing business with a local business, you probably would want to read what other people in your area, or your circle of friends, have to say about that establishment. Pretty basic stuff, right? Well, unfortunately, a lot of other directory sites out there are completely blind to this.
We fix this by making sure that when people get their stuff listed here, they have to also include social media accounts. This way, there is social proof and there is also some sort of social context to all the listings here.
We Hate Spam
The bottom line is that we want to provide information that is vetted. This is information you can trust. This is information that you can rely on to make a truly informed decision.
Stop Rolling The Dice
So stop looking for specific information in the dark. Stop rolling the dice and hoping to get lucky with random Google searches.
You have come to the right place if you are serious about finding the best information for local service and merchandise providers so you can get the maximum value for every hard earned dollar you're going to be spending.
Also, we hate spam, so we actively patrol all our listings for spam, unrelated posts, and other garbage.
