Being Found Online
A guide to getting listed in important
How do you find the contact information for a business? You used to look in the phone
book. Now that information is much more easily accessed on the internet, complete with
company logos, descriptions, and even driving directions. It’s no wonder that consumers
use these resources for finding what they need.
Almost every company in Canada is listed in the Yellow Pages – and therefore
YellowPages.ca – when they purchase a business telephone plan. This does not mean,
however, that this information is necessarily correct or complete. This guide will help you
maintain updated information in the most important online business directories.
The following is a quote from the YellowPages.ca website:
“YellowPages.ca and Canada411.ca are the directory source for several online business
and wireless partners, including Google™, Sympatico.MSN.ca™, AOL.ca™,
Netscape.com, Bell Mobility, Canada.com™, Cyberpresse.ca, Fido™ (Microcell ®),
Globeandmail.com™, NationalPost.com™, Telus Mobility™.
Over 20 million¹ Canadians use the Internet, and of those, 36%¹ access the Yellow
Pages Group's sites.”
To ensure you are listed properly go to www.yellowpages.ca and search for your
business. If you don’t show up, go to the bottom of the page and click on the “Add Your
Listing” link. If there is an error in your company information or you want to add
information to your listing, click on the “Report an Error” link at the bottom of the page
