Top Frequently Asked Questions about BestLocalRated

1Do business owners pay you to list the business?

No! We won't accept money to list a business either. We want our list to be accurate and unbiased; accepting money to list a business, or asking for money to list a business, does exactly the opposite of that! 

2Then... How does BestLocalRated make money?

Like many other websites and services,  Best Local Rated uses ads to make money. By having our revenue tied to ads we are able to provide free to both customers and businesses! We do not track or gather information about our customers through these ads.

3Why do you only pick three business?

We understand that everyone has their own likes and dislikes so we wanted to make sure you had options to choose from. We wanted to create a list with enough choices to satisfy everyone's particular taste, while making sure it was small enough to not be overwhelming. Through our own personal experiences we realized that three was just the right number to meet those goals. 

4Where do you get the information from?

We don't have one single source as we pull our information from all across the internet. If it's on the internet, we've probably seen it! We also receive emails from customers and have online partners to help collect information. Most business information (such as emails, phone numbers, addresses) are from the businesses directly.

5How long will I be on your website?

A minimum of a year (except for extreme cases such as negative court cases or business closure). After approximately a year, you will be reevaluated. This allows for growth and healthy competition, as well as ensuring the accuracy of our list.
