    Local search Q's

    Hello All,

    I have a couple questions regarding local search engines. I have 50+ small business clients (they are not associated with each other) and would like to set them up with local searches (Google maps, local yahoo, city guide, etc.). My questions are-
    1.Can I set-up all these businesses using my account and e-mail?

    2.If the answer is no to question number 1 Than I would set-up the accounts using their name and e-mail, but they all be submitted from my IP address. Would this be a problem because all these accounts are coming from one IP address?

    Thanks for your time,

    Whilst it would be possible to set them all up from one email it is not advisible.

    When registering a local business it is important to associate that as a unique business with unique local contact information as best as possible.

    Using an email on the domain that is also on the contact page for the web site is a good thing to do.

    It is also important to have locally specific (zip/postal code, city, state, dialing code country code etc) information to further associate the business and site with a particular area.
