You should do a search on it but I remember reading on a person say on another thread that he thought YP is the worst ever because he didn't get any calls from potential customers but rather a bunch of spam calls.

We had a 1/4 page ad in yellow pages online and the book. All we got were junk calls and cheap people. Then they do auto renewal on the agreement. They made a mistake and listed us in a city we don't work in. Got stuck paying $29.95 a month extra for a year in a area we don't service. They still call wanting us back. I would never use them again!

It was worth it for me. $35 a month. A lot of junk calls and google is the worst. I will be dropping them this Aug.
All equipment is wore out. <- Never mind. All equipment has been repainted and with new decals. It's like I have new mower's again!
