Yodle takes advantage of unsophisticated small businesses. They set up a separate website for small businesses, and then buys heavily marked up "pay-per-click" programs from Google and Bing. This separate website essentially competes with the existing website, and thus, the small advertiser ends up getting changed for traffic that would natually go to the existing website. Yodle "buys" the exact words of a search for a business (e.g. BRAKE MAX), and secures the top paid position on search. Essentially, Yodle's strategy is to "ambush" and charge for leads that would naturally be organic search traffic. There whole business model, and the Rip-Off of small businesses, is appalling.
