Local.com Opens in the UK : UK.Local.com

Local.com continues to grow and has expanded into the UK with its new UK Local Search Engine, which was just released from beta.

The new site offers a more streamlined look and feel on the search results page, including a three-column design that provides an intuitive navigation panel. Users can:

  • Sort results by rating, distance, business name and category
  • Limit results to a defined radius
  • Filter results by related categories and nearby cities
  • Sort by star ratings and read user reviews
  • Access recent searches, which are now automatically saved for easy reference

“ UK search is up almost 22 percent in 2006 according to Hitwise, and is expected to grow even further this year. The UK market represents a significant local search opportunity for our business,” said Bruce Crair , president and COO, Local.com. “Local.com offers our UK users very targeted search results for businesses, products and services. Our enhancements are designed to usher in a new experience in the UK local search market.”
