Yell and Microsoft ink SMB deal

Doesn't matter that Yell previously sold itself to Google

Yell and Microsoft have signed a "broad strategic alliance" aimed at small and medium businesses.

The directory company, which claims 1.3 million SMB customers, will flog MS products that include Office 365 and small business comms packages.

Microsoft will help with Yell's move to the cloud and will include its results on the Bing and Yahoo! search engines.

The deal will apparently have no impact on a similar deal done with Google in 2009.

Yell's statement is here. ®
