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.

The announcement follows the release of comScore's "2007 U.S. Internet Year in Review" in late January which ranked the Yellow Book Network as the 5th top gaining internet property in the U.S. The impressive results reflect triple-digit December year over year increases in both unique visitors - 137% - and visitation - 207% - to yellowbook.com sites.
