Detailed Description

Update

YellowBot seeks to be a hyper-local search engine and community discussion resource. The combination of yellowpages like searching with Yelp like discussions, is designed to allow consumers to find exactly what they are looking for in the search area. Their search engine has been in beta over over a year, but is not publicly open. Yellow bot is entering a space crowded with players. Searching is one of the most density populate web 2.0 spaces, and everyone from Google to Yahoo is working on local search products. Similarly websites like Citysearch, InsiderPages (now owned by Citysearch), and Chowhound (part of the CNET consortium), connect community members together to discussions restaurants, stores, etc.

The YellowBot platform is also running [weblocal.ca].
