Why BakersfieldWeb?

"Because when I needed a plumber..." You know the rest. Seriously, the internet is a great world wide communication tool but not much help when you need a new transmission. Hence, a search tool that lists only businesses serving the Bakersfield metropolitan area.

Does it cost anything?

BakersfieldWeb is free to use by anyone with internet access. Businesses pay a small fee for anything more than a basic listing.

Small Fee?

A business can list for less than $20 per year. (less than the yellow pages) To find out more click the "Get Listed" link at the left.

How do i use it?

From the home page you can click a letter of the alphabet to scroll through an alphabetical list of businesses. The listing shows the business names and telephone numbers with buttons that link to web sites. Where available, an additional button will allow you to directly send an email.

You can also chose to search our business directory by category. This feature uses a main and sub-category system to help refine your choices.

Why are there listings that are "out-of-business"?

Businesses come and go every day. We are constantly monitoring to keep our directory up to date, but unfortunately are only human. If you find a listing that is no longer in business, please let us know by Clicking Here to send us an email and we will investigate.

What should I know about directory categories?

Each business chooses its own category. Aside from blatant abuse or misrepresentation we let them do as they please. Not all businesses are included in the directory categories. Many businesses are included in several categories. Some businesses pay more to be listed prominently in certain categories, otherwise ranking is totally random.

Why are some listings duplicated?

Some companies pay extra for additional listings in different categories. (Just like in the phone book) Others actually operate two or more separate businesses from the same location. Since our information comes from a variety of sources, duplicate listings for the same business do slip by. If you notice an obvious duplication, please let us know by Clicking Here to send us an email and we will investigate.

Can I have more than a single web page?

If you would like to expand beyond your listing page, we highly recommend your own actual domain and web site. However, we can build and link to multiple pages within the BakersfieldWeb domain. The cost is $2 per page per month.
