Yahoo! Local is a stand-alone offering, using content and technology from other properties such as Yahoo! Yellow Pages and Yahoo! Maps to help users find local business listings, recommendations, events, and user reviews.
In 2007, the Company introduced a new layout. The City Guides page was developed to surface listings, events, and information in the userâ€™s local area.
Yahoo! Local generates revenues from its advertisers and publishers by serving Featured Listings placements on its search results page, as well as offering Enhanced Listings with content on a business listings page.
