Yellow Pages United Presents:
The Evolution of the Yellow Pages....From Print to PC!
While our current generation has become spoiled by search engines, Siri prompts and Yelp restaurant reviews, there was once a time when the crisp lining of a Yellow Pages directory was the primary source of local information.
Since its 1883 introduction, the “Yellow Pages” has burgeoned into an iconic index of “what’s what” in both local and international communities. The predecessor to online search queries, the Yellow Pages was the first medium to combine searches of both people and places in one, dense directory.
While some young folks may scoff at the idea of leafing through a paperback directory (“Why don’t you just Google it?”), the fact remains that the Yellow Pages is far from extinct. In fact, it has evolved.
The advent of the Internet has called for businesses to invest in a major tech upgrade, and the Yellow Pages are among the flourishing, PC-friendly companies that are keeping up with the times! More than just your standard print directories, YellowPages.com offers sleek, mobile apps for all your on-the-go needs, along with specialized SEO/search-related services for desktop users.
