EG: Lets say i am going to create a directory site for plumbers.
As a consumer searching for a plumber in my town using google/yahoo etc i am greeted with Adwords at the top followed by yell and then the google 7 box listings. In fact this is true for virtually all service based industries in my area
So what is the point in another directory site?
Firstly it is going to be hard to rank, difficult to beat the 7 box and when i am looking for say a plumber i never use sites like yell etc when there are listings right in front of me on google.
A directory site is just another added step/steps to get to the info you require right???
Anyone wish to chime in on the positives!!!
