    Yahoo Local


    I have a hotel listed in Yahoo Local, and noticed that some of the hotels listed say "Merchant Verified" next to their title. Does anyone know how to become a Verified Merchant?

    Thanks For the help.

    I believe Yahoo does a phone call check. Google and MSN send a postcard via postal mail and you must enter your pin by phone or in your account with them.

    If you did not submit the listing then you should claim it and they will make you aware of the verification process. Try this tool to get listed in the big 3 local results.http://getlisted.org/

    The Yahoo! Local Search API provides access to a wealth of data from Yahoo! Local ranging from business information to user comments to ratings. Data includes business address and phone, category, rating, distance, and URL.

    Yahoo local uses other services to get information. And they will verify your listing
