Yahoo! Local News, Easier Editing of Listings

News from Yahoo Local blog.

"It’s time to announce a new feature on Yahoo! Local which empowers you to add your favorite new local business, alert others when an old favorite has closed, and add or change business info quickly. Now you can truly be our eyes and ears in your community!.."

It's a nice feature but it's not too different from the "old" version. Maybe I am missing something or maybe they just wanted some pr for the local directory, a directory some feel is the best local platform on the web.

One of the things I like about Yelp is how easy it is to add, edit, or add photos of businesses by anyone. Two different local products and business models but Yahoo! trying the wiki route here is interesting.

Loren Baker at Search Engine Journal offers his thoughts and opinions on the new Yahoo! Local feature.
