Oddpath: A New Way To Search For Businesses

Oddpath LogoOddpath launched on May 6, 2007 and is a local search engine that contains a listing of North America’s businesses. To navigate around the website, you can filter listings by state and then business types. You can also filter listings by typing in a zip code or city name.

As an example, I’ll click on Michigan:

Next you can click on places of interest or type in your city. I’ll display screen shots of both options. Below is a screen shot of what displays after you click on a state:
Oddpost Screen Shot 2
Now I’ll click on Restaurants. Below is the listings:

The first page starts with restaurants that begin with an ‘M’ so I’m not sure exactly how they order their listings, but users can always search for places of interest as well. Users can also search via mobile phone at http://m.oddpath.com.

As another example, I searched for ‘pizza’ in zip code, 90210 and the results seemed to work very well:

The listings appear to be in order of distance from the zip code central point.

If users create an account, then they will be able to add places to an address book which they can also access through a mobile phone.

OddPath’s best feature is its mobile search. Simple and effective, I think this is OddPath’s best feature. Other features such as ‘Buzz’ and ‘Pictures’ are interesting, but definitely need some fine tuning. The mobile feature (and its simplicity) could push him forward there.
