247 News now News Provider for 1 SEARCH
1 SEARCH has launched a mega portal for an Elite Business Directory using every state name .us
When someone goes to one of the State Business Directories they will see a news feed by 247 News on the 1 SEARCH platform.
This is a strategic partner alliance for 247 News.
1 SEARCH was launched to offer the consumer a VERIFIED SEARCH FOR BUSINESSES
Each business listed on the huge directory will have been verified with 3rd parties such as AVVO and the BBB.
The network was designed to exclude businesses that have a large amount of B2C complaints.
Such businesses routinely list on Directories run by Search Englnes such as Google.
Now a consumer can know that the directory they are using for lawyers and doctors have verified the listings that are in good standing.
The intent of the 1 SEARCH directory is restore a trust factor back to the consumers who are wary of ‘the net’.
1 SEARCH has strategic partnerships with large professional portal services such as 1 Legal to supply quality professionals to their network.
1 SEARCH offers FREE BUSINESS LISTINGS with a warning it takes a while and you will be verified with 3rd party companies such as the BBB and AVVO for Lawyers and state medical boards for doctors.
Business owners can donate to help 1 SEARCH absorb the cost of listing new businesses but it is FREE DIRECTORY similar to Dmoz but with a higher level of trust factor built in.
The fact 1 SEARCH has acquired EVERY STATE NAME in the .us to run this network is a huge thing.
While each state has a reserved right to use their .us, 1 SEARCH acquired 1 prefixes for every state years ago and has now launched this new venture to help bring verified business listings to the Net.
If you click the NEWS link on each state directory you will see today’s feed for 247 News.
1 SEARCH offers business owners an express listing service but does not guarantee inclusion in their network, in fact they pride themselves on excluding businesses with negative public information in 3rd party databases.
Businesses can also pay a minor monthly fee to have their approved listing FEATURED on their specific city page.
1 SEARCH also has an Enterprise solution where a companies sponsored page is assigned competent SEO and SEM managers to help promote directory pages. These are managed SEM pages for elite business clients.
