    Mapquest, USCity.net, Yasabe and Yellowise - no more free!

    As recent as last month, one could add or edit listings on these directories free of cost using some workarounds - but no more.

    You now need to go through Yext only, of course for a price.

    What has been your experience with these directories?

    Best of The Web I believe is now no longer free as well. Smart model for these directories. even a small monthly fee generates a LOT of income for them.

    Correction - Yasabe listings are still free to claim, add or update

    Yes Greg, no more free 'jumpstart listings' from LocalBOTW.org.

    Re: Mapquest, USCity.net, Yasabe and Yellowise - no more free!

    Sure that is one way to do it, but i don't think you can create a new account for the purpose of claiming or adding a listing.

    1. https://support.mapquest.com/hc/en-u...iness-Listings
    2. and when you click MapQuest Business Listings you are led to https://listings.mapquest.com/pl/map...s/preview.html

    Meh. I'm not paying for citations (via Yext).
    You can still get to the top of the 7-pack without these sites, just need more reviews and social signals.

    I personally think it's a terrible idea for these guys to just rely on Yext. Tying your revenues to the success of another business which incidentally has a very bad reputation is shooting yourself in the foot!
