For the latest information, please see: Citysearch Brings Back Free Business Listings, Adds Twitter
My post earlier this week about Citysearch no longer accepting free business listings has generated a lot of comments, and more importantly, also generated a response from Citysearch itself.
I’ve traded a couple emails and had a chat with Brandi Willard of Citysearch’s marketing team, and here’s what small business owners need to know:
- The forms/pages to add a new, free business listing and to correct a current listing are in development and will be back on the site with the next sitewide update, which should be within two months. (They were removed during the recent overhaul of Citysearch’s web site.)
- In the meantime, you can also submit your listing for free to InfoUSA, and your listing will make its way into Citysearch’s database (as well as other sites that use InfoUSA) — probably within 4-6 weeks.
There you have it. Good news all around, and I’ll post again when the “Add a Business” form is up and running.
