Q: Is Online Business Company a business directory?
A: OBC can certainly be categorized as so, since we provide a search functionality to search for any business listed on our site. We differ from other business directories in that we are structured as a business blog in which we manage the content on the business’ behalf.

A: We are a business blog so currently we are keeping the blog roll layout. This allows for content to be fairly distributed based on active (or recent) posts or paid Ad space.
