Since I am now trading in local search gossip and innuendo (maybe I should turn this blog into Valleywag Local), I thought you might be interested in a little Twitter-based speculation.
I just noticed on Emad Fanous’ Twitter Page that he is now “in the city of brotherly love”. Now this could be a Tweet that is not meant to be taken literally, but let’s not go that route. This is a family-friendly blog after all.
So why would someone from Yellowbot be in Philly? My guess is that Yellowbot is in talks with either Yellowbook or Comcast, or maybe both. Of course perhaps Emad just had a hankering for Geno’s cheese steak. Didn’t Elvis used to fly across the country for a peanut butter sandwich?

Smart guys @ YellowBot. They definitely have a thing to teach the YP giants – in particular about user acquisition.
Excellent, now that your blog is the Local Search Insider try not to have a Pat O’Brien type of incident.
Link for reference – not really suitable language for work. http://www.tvgasm.com/archives/miscellaneous_tv/000642.php
The implications of being public about your activites on a social network are interesting.
To add to the scoop – Emad mentioned that he had on a suit and tie yesterday in his Facebook status update.
Well then it’s definitely not Yellowbook. With their new Miss Mexican Universe campaign, their corporate dress is more of a bowl full of fruit on the head thing.
