    I was just trying to track down a former clients phone number online and then started browsing the advertisements on the site (www.switchboard.com) when I realized I was not a listed advertiser. Now, before I plunk down $36 per month I wanted to know how popular any of the search engines were. so the question is,

    How do you look for phone numbers or products or services on line? Which online yellow pages do you use?

    I use anywho to find out who a phone# belongs to or if someone calls for an estimate but doesn't leave their address.

    I use reverseadress for compiling data for direct mailing. I will drive a neighborhood writing down address then enter them into the white pages to get names. I only do this for newer developments with less then 100 homes.

    I asked the question to find out who uses what. I did find the answer on switchboard. Does anyone pay to advertise on the web, other than your own website?

    Nope.....I don't pay to Advertise on the web. I don't think it would target the people I want to service.
