Raveaboutit mentions our PR

February 19, 2008 at 10:40 pm 2 comments

Raveaboutit mentions our PR and probably has a valid point in regards to Sensis. Keeping in mind though, that the mention of Sensis was more to give an idea of what type of company could be interested in stake. My actual comments in regards to Sensis were probably a little more colourful than portrayed 😉

 Keep in mind that Raveaboutit works closely with a direct competitor of clickfind.

    Hi Taco,

    Cheers for the blog mention – I spent some time looking at clickfind and think you’ve got a good product in an extremely competitive market – I lost count of the quantity of online business directories in Australia – it is at least 20+

    As a member of Australia’s local search space, you’ll no doubt cross paths with Sensis on a regular basis, whether you’re discussing funding or otherwise 🙂

    I do try and maintain as much objectivity as possible, when discussing the local search scene on my blog (despite my involvement in Rave About It), but I appreciate any feedback on my posts.

    It is no secret that Rave About It has partnered with dLook – in hindsight I should have mentioned it in my post, since you mentioned dLook in your Press Release.

    dLook and Rave About It however, are two separate companies with separate business models and agendas.
    The alliance between the two companies certainly does not restrict me in any way from commenting on their position in the local search space and vice versa.

    In terms of other players, they too face tough competition from the likes of TrueLocal, AussieWeb and Hotfrog. If you haven’t already seen Monte Huebsch’s article on the local search scene in Australia, check it out:


    It is great to see the local search scene developing in Australia beyond the domain of the Major media players and I’m sure you’ll agree, it is exciting to be a part of it.
    Last year, at Search Engine Room, I attended a local search discussion consisting of representatives from Sensis and Truelocal. I’d be interested to see (and participate) in such a discussion with other members of the local search space in the future.

    Hi Mark, thanks for the compliment and the link, it’s an interesting article.

    I certainly do agree with you, its very interesting to be part of it all. Its shame it’s so competitive, I’d much rather have conversations like this with other owners.

    — plug —
    I personally don’t see 20+ competitors.

    clickfind stands out because it is not only a business directory, it’s also a directory for products and services. In reality it’s also a mini CMS on its own getting lot’s of extra benefits from the traffic generated through the clickfind engine.

    We work together closely with the SEO community to improve our engine and results.
