What to enter in the two Business Name fields for optimal search resultsThe Belko Experiment…
FoundLocally is a site designed for both “newbies” and for power users, as a great resource for local information and search.To facilitate easy access, we have built in a number of features to simplify navigation around the site. These features includeHome-click, Site Search, Home-Home click, Jump to nearby, Back-one, and Breadcrumb Trail.Here is a guide to explain the quick navigation tricks (see mobile version of screen image, below)
- Home-click: click on the site’s logo to go right to that site’s home page
- Site Search: click – type- and press Enter to search both content pages and business listings for a word or phrase. The business listing search looks at the Name, Address, Description, andProducts/Brands fields for a match. how else would you expect to find “Sushi”? Or use it to find a store in a particular mall, or find a restaurant on a particular street!
- Home-Home click: Click on the red Maple Leaf to return to the Canada home page (“Home-Home”, as opposed to the city’s Home) where you can go to other sites, or other cities
- Jump-Nearby: click on the “bunny” image to get a pop-up window to look for the same page or the same business search results in an adjacent or nearby FoundLocally community. You can bunny-up from site to site, clear across the country, if you like. Very hand for trip-planning, for example, if you just finished a search of pet-friendly hotels
- Back-One: the left-pointing triangle (or arrow) acts the same as a browser’s Back button, and takes you to the previous page visited
- Breadcrumb Trail: this set of links takes you through the logic hierarchy of the site. The right-most link is the page “above” the current page in the hierarchy. the right-most text (if not a link) is the current page or area. you can click on any of the links in the Breadcrumb Trail, all the way up to this city’s Home Page
- The Home-Home can be accessed with two taps: click MENU at upper right, and thenFoundLocally.com in the bottom menu.
- Mobile browsers make it easy to jump back one page, so it was not worthwhile to use screen space for a similar feature.
