    I totally agree with your post about the usefulness of Citysearch. However, I cannot figure out how to submit a directory listing for a business that is not on citysearch. Can you share details on how to do this?

    It turns out, Wanda, that CitySearch has changed the procedure for doing this many times over the last year or so. The latest information I found is that you have to go through their parent company, CityGrid (http://www.citygrid.com/) and request this. Of course, CityGrid wants to sell you services. There is no longer a form on the site to submit your own business listing.
