In a series of calculated steps, Marchex launched more than 100,000 local websites, providing more than one billion pages of local content today. Previously, Marchex was better known for their massive domain name portfolio including more than 200,000 domains and 96% of all ZIP Code areas nationwide, such as www.90210.com.
The newly launched sites feature more than 15 million business listings across all major yellow pages categories including tens of thousands of vertical, local and local-vertical websites.
Wow! Marchex must have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express, drank a V8 and had their Wheaties this morning.
Local search just got a swift kick in the ass.
