Sorting out Jack Humphrey's "DNA" big release via wikipedia

For transparency, I only caught the tail end of Jack's special release - where I was asked to cough up thousands to "get in" on his latest deal. Now his deals seem pretty good - but I've enough credit card to pay off as it is.

Looking this up comes to "local search" and the idea of vertical markets, meaning one would search only a specific local area. Makes sense with both the expansion of the Intenet and higher prices of fuel and food.

Just disagree with Jack's idea of scarfing up domains and reselling them with a built-in search do-hickey on top. Plus, I haven't really been able to find anything else out about it, since that one special release webinar was it, apparently.

Chock it up to another "big release" I've missed...

Local search is the use of specialized Internet search engines that allow users to submit geographically constrained searches against a structured database of local business listings. Typical local search queries include not only information about "what" the site visitor is searching for (such as keywords, a business category, or the name of a consumer product) but also "where" information, such as a street address, city name, postal code, or geographic coordinates like latitude and longitude. Examples of local searches include "San Francisco hotels", "Manhattan restaurants", and "Las Vegas Hertz". Local searches exhibit explicit or implicit local intent. A search that includes a location modifier, such as "Bellevue, WA" or "98006", is an explicit local search. A search that references a product or service that is typically consumed locally, such as "restaurant" or "nail salon", is an implicit local search.
