Hertfordshire Online (www.herts.co.uk) does it quite well , some good info
and a complete (?) absence of the sort of advertising you usually find.

Can anyone give me opinions or examples of well executed sites that
focus on a local audience?

I believe this area has been tainted by low budget advertising led
directories, newspapers that replicate part of the copy from their hard
offering(no interaction)and local ISP's who have assembled local
businesses around their non promoted, now traffic free(!)urls.

"Local" on the Internet, it has to be said, is rarely credible, yet the
opportunities to link people who are within tangible travelling distance
of each other is a gold mine waiting to be found (at least outside

Finally, as someone who has sat and earwigged for the past 12 months
since taking a "career adjustment" from new media, a warning; don't even
think about the traditional stuff, if you are on this list you have been
infected for life! It pulls you back in.
