Business Frequently Asked Questions
What is ShopDuPage.com?

ShopDuPage.com is the premier Local Internet Directory, Online Yellow Pages and Shopping Web Site in DuPage County.  ShopDuPage.com gives both consumers and businesses what they are looking for from the World Wide Web.  

ShopDuPage.com allows consumers to search over 100,000 local Yellow Page listings and 20,000 local Web Sites for information, and to purchase products and services from those businesses. The consumer can purchase those products and services online from the web site or offline in person. 

If you want to drive it, eat it, wear it, return it, or if it is a service,  you probably want to buy it locally.  But you still want to research and shop online.  All without the clutter of searching the Web using traditional search engines. 

ShopDuPage.com allows local businesses to be visible to web-savvy consumers in their local trading area, DuPage County.  With a free listing and web page available for businesses in DuPage County, a business can be listed by keywords, products or services so they can assured of being located by those consumers who are most likely to buy from them.  

Why just DuPage County?

80% of consumer spending is still conducted within 20 miles of the home.  ShopDuPage.com gives consumers the tools of internet and the yellow pages focused where they buy.  As a business, most likely more than 80% of your consumers are within 20 miles of your business.  So being able to target geographically, those consumers that use the web to research and buy, is important.

Shouldn't I just advertise
in the Yellow Pages?

The yellow pages typically only list businesses once, in the yellow page category where the business has paid to be listed.   Some businesses are not listed at all.  You can be listed in ShopDuPage.com by an unlimited number of categories, products, services or keywords.  Consumers have instant access to your website; brochures, catalogs, and specials.  We will give you a FREE WebPage if you do not have one.

The Yellow Pages are only updated once a year, you can update your listing in ShopDuPage as often as you like.

ShopDuPage.com is interactive.  So you can interact with consumers in DuPage County instantly, sending e-mail, information, or conducting e-commerce.  At a much lower cost than your place of business.  24 hours a day 7 days a week.

ShopDuPage is less expensive.  We have three listing options which are FREE!  You can upgrade to a complete advertising, promotional, and e-mail marketing program from there.


Shouldn't I just list my site with the Internet search engines?

You should list your business with the global internet search engines.  If you have tried this, you know how difficult it can be.  Still, the best search engines only index approximately 20% of the pages on the World Wide Web.  Even so, the global search engines can give you too much information.  When a consumer uses the search engines, they typically receive businesses (and other unintended information) located everywhere in the world.  Try this for your business on ShopDuPage and on one of the major search engines.  ShopDuPage is locally focused.  So every business listed is local, where a consumer can go buy an item immediately. 

Sometimes the search engines donít give you enough information.  Again, only about 20% of pages are indexed. We have attempted to obtain EVERY web page of every business in DuPage County.  And if we miss one, or if you would like to add one, you may do so free of charge.  If you are a business in or near DuPage County and donít have a web page yet,  you can build one in the My Free WebPage area of ShopDuPage, FREE of charge.
