Google Labs has launched their latest experiment; Google Voice Local Search. This is a free automated phone service that allows you to search for local businesses.
Iâ€™m young and have never needed to use the â€œYellow Pagesâ€ because of the convenience of the Internet and Googleâ€™s services, now with the addition of Google Voice Local Search Iâ€™ll never be without that convenience. Google-411 is like having the Yellow Pages with you wherever you go.
To try out this service for yourself just dial 1.800.GOOG.411 (1.800.466.4411).
I’m the same way, although I actually *HAVE* used the yellow pages here in my home office .. I rarely do – and, my copy is the 2005 version right now.
What I use here in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada .. is:
http://Canada411.ca >> for both personal and businesses
http://yellowpages.ca/ >> for businesses
>> I just do a google search by phone number or name and 9 out of 10 times .. I find what I am looking for.
