Microsoft Live Local offers Free Phone Calls

Google Local and Microsoft Live Local play an important role in quickly accessing local information on the Web. I’m sure you realize the positive impact these features have on their advertising revenue. I’m also sure that’s why Microsoft has gone forward with this very silent launch of Live Local free phone calls. It’s much like the Google Local free click to call feature.

To see Live Local free call in action, visit Live Search and enter a business. After searching, you’ll see markers added to the map. Use your mouse to hover over a specific marker, and click “Call For Free”. Enter your phone number, and then your phone will ring and the call will be connected. I should mention that if you connect using the free call feature on your cell phone you will still pay standard airtime charges.
