Google’s GOOG-411 Connects You to Local Businesses for Free


Google has come out with another free cool service called GOOG-411, a voice-activated 1-800 line that connects you to businesses in your area. For example, if you’re looking for ‘pizza delivery’, say it along with your city and state or province, and it will give you available businesses to choose from. Here is a video demonstration of how easy it is. I have already added it to my speed dial.

  1. I am glad to see that other people are spreading the word about google. We tried it when it first came out and loved it so much we put it in our blog and newsletter as well. Didn’t think to include the video. LOL Good Job there.

  2. Hi Rajan,

    Great stuff…

    Have you promoted this blog on Fast Pitch!(www.fastpitchnetworking.com)? It’s an online business network that has as one of it’s features a way to promote your blog to their audience of small business owners. FP was actually just named Website of The Week by MSNBC’s ‘Your Business’ show for small business owners.

    If you’re already on another network (LinkedIn, etc.) – no problem. Fast Pitch! takes a completely different approach. Compare Networks: http://www.fastpitchnetworking.com/comapre.cfm

    Keep up the good work!
