New Listing FAQ

Q: I added my listing a few days ago, but it’s still not showing. Should I resubmit my listing or contact Area Yellow Pages?

A: Listings can take up to a week to be approved. Your listing will be reviewed. Please be patient. Never submit a listing twice as that can cause your account to be marked as a spammer. If it has been over two weeks and your listing is not showing and you haven’t received a response from us, submit a contact form with the details of your situation.
