What about privacy concerns regarding my Email address?
To keep your Email address safe from spam this directory uses Stealth EmailTM. All email addresses are 100% protected. No usable email address is ever shown. Instead, all email is sent in the background. This effectively hides 100% of all email addresses used in this directory. Your Email address is not and never will be visible to the public or to search bots.
Once I am logged in what can I do?
When you Login you can update your account or listing data.
Your login enables you to update text, links, ads, images, audio or movies,
review your statistics, renew or upgrade a listing, improve your listing position
and other functions designed to give you the most possible benefit from your listing.
Is everybody listed?
This is a niche directory catering to a small specific market segment. Listings can be added by a business, or by the webmaster. Allowing a business to personally enter their information allows them to show the exact listing details they want, plus it saves time.
What are the differences between the
Sponsor listing levels?
The higher the level the better the position on the page. Higher levels are always shown before other listing types when matches are found in a search. Better listing types also offer more features.
For example the Sponsor level offers a fullpage webpage, plus you can add your company logo or personal photo, two online images such as a professionally created advertisement or photograph of your company, a PDF file, an audio/video file, a Power Point presentation, MapQuest driving directions, and a Google map pinpointing your home or business location.
Why is the listing offered for free?
PlumasNews.com Online Yellowpage recognizes that some businesses may wish to be listed, but not to upgrade their listing or purchase advertising. The listing type was created to accommodate those desires.
Do I receive confirmation of any changes I make to my listing?
Yes, you receive Email confirmations from PlumasNews.com Online Yellowpage for changes to the listing description or listing ad title, and when you request a listing upgrade. Changes to your account address and contact information will NOT result in notification.

balance of states, categories and allowed listing types and numbers of listings as set in Admin > Settings.
The webmaster can change the primary category by using Manager > Work with Single Listing.
Why is a next page button absent from search results?
To give every business listing an equal chance at being seen the search results are ordered
first by listing type, then by random company name. The result is that paid listings always
have a better visibility, but also that if all listing types are the same then everyone has an equal
chance of being shown. If there was a next page, then everybody would have an equal chance of being shown on that too, so
it would not really be a next page. To zero in on a specific business,
use one of the many search tools provided
on the specialized search page.
