    This is my experience but I would advise to stay away from yellowpages.com. I have a contract with them for a upgraded listing for my business at $35 a month. I received only 2 hits to my website and combined with my current financial situation they will not let me out of the contract. I have spoken to several people and it may come to asking my sister who will graduate law school in a few months to help me. They will not budge. I will NEVER deal with them again. I have also read several posts on the internet about people who have signed up for pay per click advertising with similar problems, they dont get the clicks, incorrect information in the ads, etc. They insist there is no higher supervisor I can talk to which every one knows just isnt true

    I HATE yellow pages. They call and harrass you! I was paying $85 a month for online advertising and booked ONE portrait shoot in a year from that ad!

    I pulled my ad at the end of the year and they kept telling me to list in another section, etc. Why in the hell would I do that without a proven tract record with them!

    There's so many versions of "yellow pages" around now, I don't trust any of them when they call or send my offices what look like signup or renewal sheets.
