Odd that. They invented Yellow Pages, then sold it off.
And now they think it's a good idea again and have added a classified
section at the back of the phone book again.
Yell.com (the on-line version) is surprisingly useful. There is a whole
class of questions that Yell.com answers efficiently.
But don't ignore Thompson Local. Their geographic search is good - for
example, search for "Plumbers" near your
postcode. Wade past the "Nearby Advertisers" to the "Nearby Businesses"
and it will list them strictly by distace from your location.
It can be damned useful to pick a tradesman who lives in the next street.
