Google vs. Yellow Pages, Which is Better for Your Business?

Friday, February 25th, 2011

For more than a century consumers have, “let their fingers do the walking”, when it comes to finding everyday items and services.  In recent years, however,   more and more consumers are letting those same fingers do the walking on their keyboards using popular search engines such as Google to fulfill these same needs.

So what is an entrepreneur to do?  In an economy where every cent counts, in what market should business owners spend their precious advertising dollars?  While searching for an answer to this question, (on Google) I found this bit of information.

“Survey shows that 53.85% of those asked never turn to the Yellow Pages for their needs. Around 92.86% let their fingers do the typing in Google search boxes to find what they need. An amazing 100% of the people asked mentioned that they all use Google everyday. Obviously, the Yellow Pages may soon see the beginnings of the end of the road. A lot of people now prefer to snub printed material altogether because they prefer the ease of online tools.

What this means for business owners is even more obvious. If you own a business, regardless of whether it is based online or in a traditional brick and mortar store, you stand to gain more if Google has you on its results pages. You’d want to be right in the position for potential customers to find you quickly and easily.” (Google vs Yellow Pages- Which One Do People Use More?, 2010)

With this many users using Google on a daily basis, any business would do well to have a presence on the internet.
