London, United Kingdom United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 04, 2008 -- London, United Kingdom, November 03, 2008 -- The local social networking website My Neighbourhoods has launched a local business search that allows users to rate and review each of the 1.5 million local businesses. The online local business market has grown dramatically recently and My Neighbourhoods faces tough competition from the likes of WeLoveLocal, TrustedPlaces, Yelp and Qype.
Users can search locally or nationally for anything from boating maintenance or herbalists, to waste disposal services. For each business there is an easy-to-use review box and 5 star rating.
My Neighbourhoods is also offering local businesses the chance to advertise in their business search and local area for free, with no limit to how much detail is posted about the business. A premium-listing feature will be available for a small charge in the near future.
Founder Danny Bull said, âLocal business ratings and reviews are a hot topic at the moment and local user generated content is among the most trusted on the web. Our service aims to simplify local business reviews for both users and businesses.â
My Neighbourhoods is a fast-growing community networking site that helps people get to know their neighbours, create real-life local community relationships, find out more about their area and sell online for free. The site operates nationally throughout the UK and benefits communities everywhere in a safe and secure manner.
