Yellow Pages online is good, I use it all the time you cant look up plumbers in Sydney in Google, so depending on the business you're in Yellow Pages are worthwhile http://www.yellowpages.com.au/

Many SEO experts are a waste of money, they make a living making it up as they go and bullshitting people who can barely turn on their PC, not all of them mind you but many of them.
Yellow pages online CAN be good - certainly use it myself - unfortunately in our experience, it takes forever to get exactly what you want out of the sensis search functions and when you finally think u r getting somewhere with a reasonably cluey salesperson, they disappear and u start from scratch again with the next one.

Have not officially spoken to the SEO "eggsperts" as yet - but have been spammed enough from all sorts and from all over the world purporting to be able to direct web traffic. Have meeting scheduled for next week...

Must say my core business fortunately does not rely terribly much on internet search engines etc. although am in the process a separate online arm that would benefit.....or not???  :scratchchin:

If your new online arm needs people to see it for it to work (and your not already pushing enough  targeted people there from somewhere else -emails, magazine, tv spot etc), it'll benefit from SEO. I agree with Dodger, almost all the SEO consultants I've come across are a/ full of it and b/ just out to rape their clients.

HI GUYS,

WE have to accept some new things buddy, for example if u wanna represented in the world using your country name or city name it sounds good and intresting. actually they are telling us .Sydney for all business and people who want to make websites with this TLD and if u wann represent like Aussie in the world the TLD will be .Aussie   

whatever you want u can get it that is best policy to change the monopoly.
i do agree with ur terms like so many problems will cum but they will be rectified in few months time.

Well technically yeah, but I don't think there's a law that says you can't have non-porn stuff on there. :p  ICANN just released this TLD - what a money spinner.

Australia is another example auDA requires anyone registering a .com.au second-level domain to have a valid entitlement for that domain - i.e. a registered business name with an Australian Business Number (ABN) issued by the Australian Taxation Office. However, this has failed to protect Australia from such cybersquatting acts. Any Australian citizen over the age of 16 can obtain an ABN (which is free) and use it to register as few or as many domain names as they like but they need to have a "close and substantial" connection to the name or it needs to be an "exact match, abbreviation or acronym" of their name. Check auDA for further details.

Oh well, back to the drawing board  :doh:
