An Introduction to Google 411
(Page 1 of 4 )
Google is one of those companies that seem to be expanding out in every direction that you can think of. One of its new projects is Google 411. Keep reading for all the details, and for what you can get out of it.
Google 411 provides a service similar to the directory assistance services with which you are already familiar. You call up the number and give them both the location of the listing that you want and the name. After a few seconds it will give you the potential listings, and once you choose the right listings you can be connected to that phone number automatically.
The one major difference between the Google 411 service, nicknamed Goog 411, is very simple, and it's easy to see the benefit of it. Using Goog 411 does not cost you anything -- unlike most phone providers, especially the mobile phone providers, who will either charge you up to 50 cents per call for the information or a flat rate that can be tacked on to your bill each and every month.
You can use Goog 411 once a month, once a day or 50 times every day for a month without ever incurring any fees. Truth be told, if you happen to use your current 411 service more than a few times a month, then you can save yourself a fair bit of money during the year.
Letís say that you use it six times in a month. In one calendar year you would save $18. If, however, you had a monthly rate plan with something like a $10 rate added on to your bill, then you would save $120 a year. In either scenario the money is better off in your pocket than it is going to the phone companies. No one really wants to give away money that they could then save or spend on something more fun. We all want to hold on to our own hard-earned money.
