Yellow Book Unveils Redesigned Site Featuring Microsoft Virtual Earth

UNIONDALE, N.Y.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 5, 2008— Yellow Book USA announced today the launch of a completely redesigned Yellowbook.com. Unveiled Friday, the new yellowbook.com is powered by a simple easy-to-use consumer interface designed to enhance the overall user experience and return even greater relevancy in search results.

The redesign incorporates Microsoft Virtual Earth's highly interactive maps with high-resolution satellite and aerial images, up-to-date location information and driving directions. Also included are new predictive drop down boxes to expedite visitors' searches and a layout that places most advertisers above the fold, providing users a quick view of search results.
