Welcome to Yellpedia.We're currently redesigning Yellpedia and expect to be launching Yellpedia 2.0 shortly. Yellpedia 2.0 will have an easier interface to build pages, add photos and more. Meanwhile continue to add and/or edit pages to Yellpedia since everything will be transferred over to Yellpedia 2.0.
Please use the search box at the top of this page or the links to the right. Just type in the subject and then a local identifier.Some examples -- Type in "Pizza" & "714" to see the pizza places in the 714 area code. Type in "New York, NY" & "Attorneys" to see Attorneys in New York City.Pages with more information always rank higher in the search results. Or if you just don't believe us on the size of Yellpedia type in State CA or any other state you prefer.

Always wanted to write a Wikipedia article, but thought it was too late since everything has been written about?
It's been said some articles in Wikipedia are too done, but now you can take import a Wikiepdia article and cross-link it with moden day local venues. Shouldn't an article about the Civil War list local places to visit now? Link any subject (United States based) to the now with places to go see...

What's the point of Yellpedia?
There's already Facebook and Yelp in the world doesn't that make Yellpedia pointless? No, it doesn't. Yelp is a great service, but it's a limited format -- What medical insurance does a local doctor accept? What's the prices at the local dry cleaner? None of those questions, and many more, can be answered inside the Yelp format. Facebook, in theory, could have more information, but practice falls short of providing a complete informational picture of a listing.
Yellpedia seeks to provide encyclopaedic coverage of every listing
To that end we allow the use of embedded services to show videos & photos, to play music, to post documents, etc.
Yellpedia claims to be bigger than Wikipedia?
Wikipedia has something like 30 Million pages while Yellpedia has a little over Ten Million, which means Wikipedia, by page count, is bigger. Wikipedia, however, only has 4 Million plus editable articles while Yellpedia has over 10 Million listings(articles) waiting to be edited. Yellpedia, therefore, is bigger by the gross number of articles (listings) that can edited by the public.
The Site Statistics don't show Yellpedia having over 10 Million Pages.
Unfortunately, the wiki software measures page counts strangely since it expects pages to grow organically, which is great for most wikis, but is a non-starter for a yellow pages. If you don't trust us feel free to count every listing...
A listing doesn't show up in a category it's listed in
This is a hang-over to the tricky way we loaded all the data into Yellpedia. Once a page is edited, or saved, for the first time all the category links will function correctly.
My company isn't listed.
Add it! We admit some other websites may have slightly more updated information, but that's easily fixed. Find something missing -- Add it. Find a closed business -- edit the page and write [[Category:OUT OF BUSINESS]] and someone in admin will remove the page. If you want a page saved for historical reasons write [[Category:Historical Listing]] and if the listing has some historical value the page will be saved.
