The wiki-powered business website Bizwiki.com went fully live today.
Bizwiki was alpha launched Dec. 2008 with the goal of changing the way local search works by enabling users to build the “most up-to-date index of businesses in the United States,” according to the press release.
Basically it’s a wiki-powered online Yellow Pages that allows business owners to update their companies’ contact and other information.
“We are also launching new functionality today that allows the site’s users to ‘Watch’ any business, receiving an email notifying them of any additions and edits,” said Bizwiki co-founder Matt Aird. “This is useful for anyone who is interested in following changes, but is primarily designed to empower people to get involved in claiming their own businesses and ensuring the information the public sees stays as accurate and relevant as possible.”
