Since our city's website
has received a makeover, it's a good time to spruce up our city's online presence overall.
Here is a list of 8 sites that you can list your business or post your reviews with links to the Beacon section of each:
- Yelp: Reviews are listed in order of popularity - the more reviews, the higher in the list. Dia is currently on top with 20 reviews. You can filter the list best match to your keyword, most reviews or highest rated.
- InsiderPages: Similar to Yelp in that reviews are written by users.
- Citysearch Beacon: We get our own page, but like all the local listing sites, this one needs some updating. Listings are organized more by categories of service.
- Yahoo Local: This one has a convenient RSS feed to subscribe to new reviews.
- Local.com: A nice page layout with "local favorites" featured in each category.
- YellowPages.com: Ah, good ol' Yellow Pages. You can list for free but will only let you search using a keyword.
- Urbanspoon:: Urbanspoon just recently began covering Poughkeepsie and surrounding areas. Beacon has 61 restaurants listed, many of which are closed. I've submitted info on Zora Dora's, Marlena's and Chill and much more needs to be corrected on this list to get it up to speed.
- Local Harvest:For farmers and other local foodstuffs.
- Google Local Business Center: List your business so people can find you on Google Map searches.
