The Sacramento Business Directory has been Sacramento's go-to independent business and web resource directory for almost 18 years. It is now time to put this project to bed. When the Internet was young, local directories were a necessity because quite frankly, the search engines at the time did a horrible job of indexing and displaying local content. The Sacramento Business Directory attempted to fulfill the need to highlight local businesses and organizations for the Sacramento area. And over the years I think it did a pretty good job of it.
But today, such local directories are not needed - the tech environment has changed. Mobile devices have replaced desktops and everyone has the most powerful search engines available sitting in their pockets ready to answer any of their questions or needs simply by the asking.
