YP℠ and BBB Team Up to Make Finding Great Businesses Even Easier
Who doesn’t love seeing an A or A+ rating to help you feel more confident about doing business with a company? Now, consumers using yp.com or the YP℠ App to find trusted businesses — whether a landscaper, real estate agent, mechanic or other valuable service — can narrow their searches for only businesses with top Better Business Bureau (BBB) ratings.
Specifically, due to a new relationship between YP and the BBB, businesses and professionals rated A or A+ by the BBB now show up in yp.com and YP℠ app searches. So searching for a BBB rated business takes only a few swipes on a smartphone or clicks on yp.com. That’s bound to be great news for the nearly 70 million users of yp.com and the YP℠ app every month.
In addition to these ratings from BBB on YP, consumers will also be able to click through to bbb.org to view information such as complaints, customer reviews, licensing, government actions, and more on approximately 1.3 million current BBB Business Reviews.
“BBB and YP are both popular destinations for finding and connecting with great local businesses in your neighborhood,” said Stu MacFarlane, EVP of consumer platforms at YP. “YP is dedicated to providing consumers with the tools they need to make informed decisions – and working with the BBB enables YP to display an additional, reliable source for business information and ratings.”
“YP has done an incredible job of updating its information and embracing all platforms of delivery,” notes Mary E. Power, president and CEO of the Council of Better Business Bureaus. “This partnership brings together two strong brands dedicated to helping consumers make smart purchasing decisions, at home and on the go.”
