Businesses get a Web address plus basic information including address, phone, fax and mobile numbers, payment methods and opening hours in the Electronic Yellow Pages area of Yell.

"The initial response is excellent and we believe that our offer could result in hundreds of thousands of businesses having a presence on the Web," said Eddie Cheng, new media services director at Yell.

Cheng added that Yell is currently receiving over two million page views per month.
