Of Local Business Listings

<< User Video Traffic & Weather >>


MetroGuide is developing the future of local commerce. Studies show that most of the world’s commerce takes place within just a few miles of people's home, yet there is no clear global solution for the challenge locating and contacting merchants and service providers in local communities. Services such as YellowPagesGuide and FindGuide are poised to transform the way people find and interact with local businesses.

All six domains in this section are concepts currently under development.


Every year, newspapers kill the equivalent of entire forests to print classifieds, with only a small fraction ever read. Isn’t it time, once and for all, to have a central digital listing service for classifieds that not only saves the trees, but saves you time looking around multiple sites? From sources all around the web, jobs, real estate, local items for sale, personals and more all will be available in the single source for classifieds.

In addition, when you take into account all of the privacy issues associated with listing peoples’ contact information, it is plainly time for a new model, one that lets the end user control how their information is displayed.

There’s a whole lot of G’s in the TaggingGuide brand, and there’s soon to be a whole lot of tags incorporated by our readers. When users say “TaGGGG This,” they will be sharing their knowledge about an atomized piece of content to both their personal metro network and with the world.

Millions of local listings, millions of products and billions of webpages make it quite a challenge to find anything on the Internet.
