I think the last time I had an ad in the YP it was about 1994 or so. In the 80's it paid, but slowed too much in the 90's.
Get a website and then buy a "shameless link" on this forum. That will get you hits, but also search your site using Google or any other popular search engine and scroll down until you find your site, then click on it. Each time it gets clicked on your site will move up in the list. A few years ago, I actually did that for about 10 minutes every day, clicking on my site, then closing it and searching again over and over again for almost a month. At that point my site was showing up on the first page. Since then I have had all the business I want and have not done it again.
If you are in a business selling a service or product to the public.
Raider Bill's experience may be different because so many of his clients are senior citizens who grew up with the YP.

Maple flats,  clicking on the link pretty much only moves it up the list for you unless many many people are clicking on your link too, or as you said, you are linked to a popular site like the Forestry Forum.  Most of the search engines return information relative to what it thinks you are interested in. It uses your internet search history to remember these things and return what it "thinks" you would want to see first. It kinda works, because you want to see your site higher in the rankings. You may think your are doing better than you are unless you are searching with a completely clean cache. No cookies, no history, and going signing into google and deleting your search history there to if you happen to have an account (android users have to have one)

It worked for me about 10 yrs ago, shortly after I set up my first website. I did not have nor never had a Google ad, likely never will, I'm just trying to get the spam calls from Google and everyone else to stop.
Must be I was just seeing it move up on my computer. I guess I was fooled. On the other hand, an ad in the Forestry Forum truly does help, since so many use the forum it seems to multiply your results. Even for people just doing a search and the answer is on the FF which happens frequently.
On that subject, I have at times run a search for maple related questions only to see a post I made on a maple site as the first answer to the question. That makes me smile but does little to help me research a topic.

Phone books make great fire starter. Those thin, crinkly pages wad-up nicely and give much enjoyment as you tear the pages one-by-one to throw on the fire. smiley_clapping

If your business comes up on a internet search, such as yellow pages, you should look at the information and make sure it is correct and current.  If not, you can "claim the ad" and update it.  If you have been in business many years, things about your business may have changed.

A few months ago one on my low rent units called for a plugged toilet. Sure enough they were using a telephone book for TP.
