Help and FAQ

How do I search with the Internet Yellow Pages?

Our Internet Yellow Pages (IYP) platform will always help you find local, reliable results. Our convenient and effective site allows you, the user, easy access to businesses in your area, with directly actioned contact details and business locations.

To get started, type in the name or type of business you are looking for into the search box located at the top of any page on, depending on your search terms, there may be a dropdown of possible terms related to your search. To further refine your search, you can enter the area in which you are looking for a business, then click ‘Find’.

Our Internet Yellow Pages will then return a list of results relevant to your search categories. Once you have found a business related to your needs, clicking on the business name will open a page which includes the option of making a free call, reviews, about the business, products & services, business hours and more.

On our Home page , you can also navigate to marketing your business, popular cities, popular searches in your area and customer testimonials. The bottom menu bar offers you quick links and how to get in touch with us!

Using search terms

Use Search Terms that best describe your need. Dour helpful dropdown search terms will help navigate you to frequently searched terms.

The following are examples of typical searches: "Italian Restaurant" in the Service/Name box and "Sandton" in the Location box - You know exactly what you want and where. "Keys Cut" in the Service/Name box and "Woodstock" in the Location box - IYP will also find businesses with the Search Words "Key Cutting". "Lawyer" in the Service/Name box and "Johannesburg" in the Location box - IYP will know you are looking for Attorneys in Johannesburg. "Scuba diving" in the Service/Name box - IYP will find all relevant locations, so you can then Drill Down to your selection. "Camps Bay" in the Location box - IYP will show you all the Business Category in Camps Bay.

How does IYP select listings for my result set?

Our Internet Yellow Pages (IYP) platform takes your search terms (what and where) and explores every piece of relevant information to every business in South Africa that is in our system, including information printed in all of the Yellow Pages books. When a business matches against all of your search terms, the relevant listings are filtered. Whenever IYP cannot find a business matching all of your search terms, listings that match at least one of your search terms.

If no results are loading, it might be more helpful to start a new search with less search terms.

Refining results list

You may have started a search by typing in a broad search term, that results in a large number of qualifying listings. You can further refine these listings with choosing a location and service below the heading with the number of results. This will result in IYP generating a new refined result set more specified to what you are looking for.

If no results are loading, it might be more helpful to start a new search with more search terms.
