- Seekitlocal just redirects you to a mobile interface from 2008, but it doesn't seem to have anything that makes it uniquely tailored to the power of today's mobile browsers.
Re QR codes, I think this says it best:

- Interestingly primeplace.nokia.com. Maybe I'm missing something... I'll give it a second look at tomorrow. (I was traveling when I first replied and couldn't remember the URL - otherwise I would have included it - sorry)- it circles back to the current on-page submission page @Nov 13, 2012
- You hit the nail on the head. The problem with directory link building (local or otherwise) in a nutshell is that they get old/outdated pretty fast. At least social media local directories like G+ and Yelp will keep updating via reviews.
Re: the two directories, I didn't mean to imply that they were any good. I just meant that they were the only two I could find with a submit page.
As one good pic deserves another, here's one for you:

- Good catch. I saw the Prime Place thing mentioned when I was registering but didn't notice the link to that URL.
I think the local mobile native apps are more interesting as they are more likely to get used. Check out Avantar for example. Nothing too amazing, but gets a ton of usage.Nov 13, 2012
- Thanks for the Avantar tip. It looks good on my phone but I can't find the "add your listing" form - except for Yext, of course. Same goes for Alike..Nov 14, 2012
- They probably use Localeze or Acxiom. Ask them Support@Avantar.usNov 14, 2012
