UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The Yellow Book Network was the top-gaining site in the United States for March 2008, according to comScore, a leader in measuring the digital world.

With a new record of 13.5 million unique visitors in March 2008, traffic to the Yellow Book Network, anchored by yellowbook.com, rose 54% from February to March and more than doubled versus a year ago.

The growth of the site follows on the heels of yellowbook.com's new consumer interface, which was redesigned in January, 2008 for an enhanced overall user experience and greater relevancy in search results. Consumer-friendly features were also added to the site, including advanced interactive mapping with Microsoft[R] Virtual Earth[TM] and predictive drop down boxes in the search fields to enable a more precise search.
