Sep 11, 2007 (08:09 AM EDT)
CHICAGO, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Grayboxx, a Silicon Valley-based online local-search firm, is enhancing the depth of information offered by its unique "neighbor-recommended" local-search service by partnering with Localeze.
"Grayboxx is offering local searchers an unprecedented level of relevant information through our business rankings and neighbor recommendations," said Bob Chandra, founder of Grayboxx. "Our partnership with Localeze ensures that our search results are infused with the most comprehensive, rich and up-to- date information available for local merchant contact information and other vital search terms."
Grayboxx's innovative PreferenceScoring(TM) engine is able to translate everyday actions people take with or about businesses into meaningful expressions of business popularity and quality. For example, when a user checks out a restaurant online, makes a reservation, and then a week later makes another reservation, this can be considered as a positive recommendation of the restaurant.
"Grayboxx has taken an inventive approach to making local search results more relevant," said Jeff Beard, Localeze President and General Manager. "Just as Grayboxx will feature a wealth of recommendations directly from people in the community, the business information provided by Localeze includes the deepest, richest data available, including information straight from the merchants themselves."
Localeze's unique local-search repository provides companies like Grayboxx with over 16 million enhanced US business listings. These listings are drawn from merchant-rich sources, including merchants themselves and their Web sites. Other sources include more than 4,000 phone directories that have been validated, verified and enriched with data from Web sites, authorized dealer lists and external information from Localeze partners.
