Yipes! It gave me someone else's listing with my name. I'm sending them a message... it's a different B&B on a different street.

This site has added a lot of new places to list. Are they worth it or helpful? Not sure. I am just spending the next week or so redoing some SEO, social networking, etc. Lots of great stuff and advice from this forum over the years.

So I just did this and the first thing it says under my Name and Address: website not found.
Not found on Google or Yahoo. - BUT I AM there! Listings claimed and information 100% completed on both and we come up first in searches on both.
Superpages, stated not claimed - double checked and yes I had claimed it sometime back
Same with YP.com and Yelp.
Stopped checking at that point.
Just saying this site is not all that accurate....

That's quite a list! I've claimed some of them... will have to do the rest another day. This could take awhile.
Thanks for the info!

You should write up a short blurb that you can cut and paste into every one of these listings. I found the hardest thing was coming up with photos and a 'statement'. If you've got it done up already, it's much faster.

Sorry to hear it did not work for you, Copperhead. I just liked that it was in one spot.
