The meaning of a business search is a exhaustive listing of enrolled businesses. The mission of a business search is to help the searcher find their objective, usually a business’s service or product.  A business search is constructed with local people in mind, helping them to find the best business or service in their city. All business searches are a combination of data bases that house thousands if not millions of national or local business listings.

A business search is similar to a business search directory or search engine although it differs quite a bit. Some of the major differences are a search engine is a program that searches a document for a named keyword and coming up with a list of documents where the key phrase was found. Even though a search engine is simply a general class program, the terminology is mostly used to convey systems like Google, Yahoo as well as others.

Regularly, a search engine works by sending an Internet robot called a spider to crawl a website to bring back  as many documents as achievable. Another program, called an indexer, then reads these records and generates an index based on the words enclosed in each document. Each search engine uses a proprietary algorithm to produce its indices such that, optimally, only useful results are brought back for each query.

A search directory on the other hand is used when you are looking for knowledge on the Internet that is easily classified and searched by browsing in a directory. A search directory is similar to a search engine in that they each put together web sites in a database. The difference is that webpage’s are directly submitted into it and the submitted webpage’s are investigated by humans instead of being spidered.  Then the webpage is cataloged and in most cases alphabetized. Also most directory listings will start with numbers then proceed to A through Z.

If you do a search on the search engine Google for the keyword “business search” you will find four hundred and eighteen million search results.  Most of these search results are for Internet directories and business directories. However, there are quite a few true business search website’s.

One of the advantages that a local business search has is, that if you do a search for a business that you have a demand for, you will locate find exactly what you are looking for. If you live in Walla Walla, Wa and you want Chinese noodles and you do a search in a business search directory, you will be taken to a page that has the scoop about restaurants that offer the food you want.  Or if you need brakes for your car you’ll type Fl, brakes and up will pop a page with your local muffler and brake specialist.

For myself like the idea a business search directory much better than a search engine for finding a local business. It seems that when I do a search on a major search engine for a local business, the search results are most of the time are not what I was longing for.  However, when I use my preferred business search directory I am sure that I will find the business that I was expecting.

Planet Buzz

PlanetBuzz.com is the up and coming, most state-of-the-are Internet business listing that has more than 20-million business searches. Using the PlanetBuzz business search, rather than the out-of-date Yellow Pages, is a greener way to find the local business listings you need.

Consider the natural resources it takes to create five hundred million Yellow directories (according to YellowPagesGoesGreen.org):

•    19-million trees are harvested
•    1.6-billion pounds of paper are used in the printing process
•    7.2-million barrels of oil used in processing, not including the gas used by sales reps driving around selling ads and delivering the phone books to your doorstep
•    268,000 cubic yards of landfill are taken up by old Yellow Pages
•    3.2-billion kilowatt hours of energy are consumed

To make matters worse, many times a year, new Yellow Page directories must be re-created to include new companies and revise out-dated companies. But with Planetbuzz.com, the Internet business directory, business owners can update their own business information when they need to – in real time. Think of all the trees we could save if we stopped the Yellow Pages madness! Read More…

Planet Buzz about Phone Books,Trees and What We Should Do

The most important thing you read about in the World report is economic stimulus.  Here is a positive note, according to the National Arbor Day Foundation – Trees can be a stimulus to economic development, attracting new business and tourism. Commercial retail areas are more attractive to shoppers, apartments rent more quickly, tenants stay longer, and space in a wooded setting is more valuable to sell or rent.

Forty trees remove 80 pounds of air pollutants annually.

Trees can keep us cooler in the summer and save us ten million dollars a year in energy costs. Trees also clean up air pollutants and save us millions in air pollution cleanup. Trees also can also save us millions of dollars annually in storm water runoff costs;  Four million trees save $14 million dollars in annual storm water runoff costs.

USDA Forest Service states, the planting of trees means improved water quality, resulting in less runoff and erosion. This allows more recharging of the ground water supply. Wooded areas help prevent the transport of sediment and chemicals into streams.

Here is an alarming bit of information. Read More…
