Search tool episode suggestion

I posted this on the BOL forum an d it occurred to me this is a great idea for a Real Deal podcast. So I figured I would post it here as well. I hope that is not against the rules for cross posting.

I seem to recall that Tom and Molly on the BOL podcast mention using different search tools for local searches. I am looking for a good doctor, what should I use? Google is too broad. In the past when I want to find something local, I use Yahoo Yellow Pages but I wonder is there something better out there?

For that matter I wonder what you all use for you searches. Here are a few categories:

1. Generic Internet search (ie. find that company or find a driver) - Google
2. Local vendors (ie chinese food or auto repair) Close counts reviews would be nice too.
3. Shopping looking for the best deal on a item
4. People - trying to find that friend's phone number?

I hope this thread is not out of bound since it doesn't refer to a specific show. I just know the community here will have a bunch of ideas I never would have known.
