Yahoo Local Adds Quick Add / Edit Business Listing Feature

The Yahoo Local Blog announced that they have added the ability to quickly add and edit a business listing. For example, if you wanted a business added within about 24 hours, you can go to this form and fill out the details, about 24 hours later, the listing should be live in Yahoo Local. To edit a business listing, look for the “Edit This Listing” link directly under the business rating. You may also want to claim your business, if it is listed, by clicking on the “Edit This Listing” link and selecting that option.

    Thanks for the info, I just used it to update a listing – Yahoo gives you a very quick form to fill out, but it’s lacking some of the information I would like to add to my listing.

    Hi Barry,
    I have looked at a most of my clients’ Yahoo! Local listings and see the “Edit This Listing” link directly under the business rating for most, but not for one of my clients in New Orleans. Do you think this is being made available to select listings?

    Thanks – great blog and great resource!
