Locationary.com (like yellowpages)

This one is in the EARLY stages. Basically you enter info for pretty much any business. When they advertise, you get 50%. Plain and simple as that.

Here are the details (direct quote from the site forums):

Locationary is the new global place directory. We call it The World's Place Database (TM). If Facebook is the new 21st century White Pages (where every person has a profile page), then Locationary is the new 21st century Yellow Pages where every place has a profile page.

There are two aspects about Locationary that make this project revolutionary:

* Firstly, our database will be distributed for free. We'll provide our data in raw, database form and permit everyone to freely use the data even for commercial websites and mobile apps.

* Secondly, Locationary uses an unique crowd-sourced system to seed the data. In an online gold-rush, our members are financially rewarded for being the first to add a place. Our members also receive valuable benefits for keeping the data current and accurate.

Locationary was needed because information on local places is scattered across the Internet in different formats within proprietary databases or in paper directories. As a result, search engines and mobile devices cannot easily find information on local places. Businesses spend $31 billion globally to get their businesses listed, and then $20 billion more is spent by Internet companies and marketers to buy this data. There is currently no open system that everyone can use. We’re creating the new open standard for local data: local search websites, mobile application developers, and everyone else will be able to download and use the collected data for free.

We will encourage businesses to add detailed information on their products and services, promotions / coupons, events, and job postings. Homeowners and landlords will be able to add their real estate and rental listings. Every place in the world will have a profile page that can be enhanced with as much data as the owner desires. Locationary is business friendly too; place owners who have claimed their listings will maintain full control over their content.

A central, open system where businesses and others can update their information once for global distribution will result in an explosion of innovative websites and local search applications that will spring up to use the free data. People everywhere will benefit by being able to instantly locate and accurately compare everything in their cities and around the world. We offer a road map to a world where mobile devices know everything that’s going on around you. Become a member of the project that's changing the world!

No need to change the thread title. You don't need to PM email addresses. A referral link can be posted and can be found in your Locationary profile. Sounds like a "conga" to me.

Site is starting to take off. I've been typing like mad all week.

Really?

All I see under my profile is my Username, password, and email.

Only way I can find to refer someone is to obtain their email and send them an invite.

Am I missing something?

Look under the "Your Account" tab. You can also click on the "Stuff To Do" link at the top. When you go to these pages, you'll see a line that says "Invite Friends" and a blue button to the right that says "Do It Now". The following page will list your referrals, their status and your personal link.

Suspicions are ok. Every startup has them. I'm choosing to invest nothing but my time in hopes it might pay off in the future.

Nothing...

I'm rather internet savvy so I think I could find it on my own if it existed for me.

I'm also not too confident in this now.
