March 03, 2010 08:33 AM Eastern Time
CARY, N.C.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Dex One Corporation, leading provider of marketing services and
solutions for local businesses, today announced it has signed an agreement with Yelp (yelp.com), the fastest growing
local business review site, to provide consumer feedback on its local search sites.
Dex One will be integrating the new content – ratings and reviews written by the Yelp community – on
DexKnows.com® (www.dexknows.com) later this month. The Yelp-branded content will appear within individual
DexKnows.com local business listings and complement the existing user-generated content already provided by
regular DexKnows.com users.
“Merging this robust consumer feedback on one site allows consumers to more easily see how others rank a
business before deciding if that business is right for their specific needs,” said Sean Greene, senior vice president of
interactive, Dex One. “And for our approximately 500,000 local business clients, adding content from Yelp – the
leading local guide in real world word-of-mouth content – helps them better engage with their prospects and
DexKnows.com includes a feature that allows Dex One clients to access the site’s secure Account Management
System (AMS) and directly respond to consumers’ comments – thus encouraging communication between
businesses and their customers and fostering stronger, more successful business relationships.
“The Yelp community is made up of passionate locals who write about their experiences with neighborhood
businesses,” said Geoff Donaker, chief operating officer, Yelp. "Our relationship with Dex One enables these yelpers
to share their experiences with the millions of consumers and local businesses who rely on DexKnows.com."
