  1. what they dont tell you is that if you have a new local listing like I do that they can take up to 10 weeks to approve that listing. I made a yahoo local listing and then immediately signed up for local works. It took a week to get an email saying my marketing dashboard was active. When I signed in I saw that I could not make any changes to my listing…That Yahoo Local listing serves as the master listing for Local Works. So that 90.00 for 3 months means that you cant use the core part of the service (updating your listing from one place so it shows the same across the net) for up to 10 weeks while your Initial listing is in the review process. If I would have gone with Yext directly I could have at least used the service from day one. They need to change this immediately..but what do they do instead? They tell you that for another monthly fee for an “enhanced” local listing, they will speed the approval process to around a week. This is at the very least unethical, and borders on bait and switch. I am entirely dissatisfied with the service but have already prepaid for the program as well as prepaid for them to do the hosting and the domain name as well!!!! I did all this to head off problems in two weeks when we move the company. Now I’m pretty much screwed.

    Spread the word abot this, most people will not realize until it is too late
