Half Moon Bay Online Directory – Coastside Live

Written by Terry Plank on . Posted in Resources - Half Moon Bay Coastside, Web Site Resources

There are many Coastside and online resources to find information when considering a visit, planning an event, standing on the street corner in Half Moon Bay looking for a location, or living here and trying to find a local service like an Insurance Agency.

Coastside Live is the easiest to use for locating Coastside business addresses and phone numbers, things are readily findable in Coastside Live.  Sites like the Coastside Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce and the Half Moon Bay Review include only members or advertisers, Yelp and the search engine’s “Local” sites take some digging if you don’t know exactly what you are searching for.  Coastside Live has everything in clear lists in each category; it’s easy to scan and get that address and phone number.

So, ease of finding “everything local” is the first advantage of Coastside Live.

Next, the home page has three clear sections showing, the Coastside Calendar, Weather/Surf Reports, and Web Cams to showing exactly what the day looks like.  As a local resident and a wedding vendor I find that Coastside Calendar especially handy  for finding entertainment every night of the week and for recommending to wedding clients things to do if they are spending some time here before or after their wedding. The owners of Coastside Live make it easy for companies to enter their own entertainment or local activity listings and they follow up with those who don’t so it stays current.

Finally, comprehensivenes is a real plus; by following menu links like Eat, Sleep, Play, Shop, Move, or Local Services you can find everything you might need. I counted over 60 categories in Local Services alone. New local businesses and service providers can submit their information to Coastside Live by contacting them at coastsidelive@roguewebworks.com.

A word to businesses, organizations, and activity providers; since Coastside Live has excellent search engine findability for all the major keyword searchers use to find Coastside services, paying for a link or advertising on the site is a no-brainer for low cost traffic generation. However, your listing is free, so get it in the directory if you don’t find it there.
