I think Bruce might like to sanitize his last 10 searches a bit, if you check now, you'll see me being a bit rude lol...

WoW launched our mobile searc

WoW launched our mobile search utility in Beta mode so we can test and get feedback on the compatibilities of the search with the many different mobile browsers. I have seen an increasing number of mobile browses on the WoW Directory logs and felt it was time to move into the market and better accommodate the many users, myself included. We contracted the development with SEO Image and have plans to develop it extensively over the next year.

The first stage in the development will be adding a full blown search engine and spider that will integrate the WoW general directory and WoW Yellow Pages Business Directory as well as other select human edited databases. At this point we are only using the WoW Directory database. Being only 9 months old the database is far from developed and will require another 3 years to be comprehensive. The second stage of development will be to add additional mobile compatible resources. We hope to have travel resources including maps and direction services, roadside emergency services and business and investment financial resources and starters.

Your feedback on the types of mobile services you would like on a website would be greatly appreciated.

I personally feel the industry is in its infancy and we plan on growing and developing with it. I use a Blackberry extensively and can operate my entire business with it when away from home and have always been frustrated with the time it takes for websites to load and the many incompatibilities on websites. This is what gave me the idea to develop a high speed fully compatible utility for WoW.

This sounds excellent. I like having choice in my search and I'm glad you are going to provide an alternative to the big boys.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you

I have been hammered this past week due to the business directory opening and a rather surprising number of submissions. I don’t have sufficient staffing in place to handle the submissions but hope to have that problem resolved soon with two editors in training.
