Posted: Wednesday, July 16 2008

Skiatook, OK (July 15, 2008)- Yellow Assistance ( has released a new free service for
independent business directories, called Yellow Assistance Publisher Partnership Program (, or YAP3 for short, which will enable independent business phone directories to compete against the top national business directories.

YAP3 gives the little guy the edge, providing independent phone directories with their own instant private-labeled yellow pages website with professional design. Directories can then pass along the benefits to their advertisers, as YAP3 will help optimizing their listing with the Search Engines (i.e. Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc).

But the Yellow Assistance team didn’t stop there. They went the extra mile to give directories and businesses the top available technology, offering click-N-talk phone number links, send-to-mobile and mobile web page listings (.mobi), along with many other features like localized headlines and news, consumer business ratings and reviews, and more.

YAP3 combines a national scoping process with over 19 million business listings nationwide to allow nationwide search capabilities while preserving localized and relevant advertising. This adds up to big results for independents, who have previously been unable to offer their listings alongside a national database like the corporate business directories.
Additionally, business owners each choose a personalized login username and password where they can monitor their businesses’ reviews, adjust their listings’ content and even create and post consumer coupons and other advertisements.

The system is 100% free and maintains the security of independent directories’ listings, while providing them with an additional source of revenue with banner ads and optimized listings.

Yellow Assistance is proud to offer this service free to independent directories nationwide. For the directory owners, this is an opportunity to unite and compete on a national level for the first time.
