    where to find web firms

    For various reasons I'm trying to look up web development firms around the country. I can do the standard google search etc. but that's a lot of work. Does anyone know of websites that keep track of these sort of things? Is there a website that would have a listing available?

    Which country are you talking about?
    In many countries there are so called “Yellow Pages”.

    I don't see why you have to resort to calling names, either. Stephan is from Germany, and we Europeans do things a lot differently, in general. Things aren't worldwide and you so helpfully didn't specify your country. Be open to someone, you know, actually being helpful.

    Well I would think you should start by reducing your search down from 'web firm' to something more manageable. There are some who focus on niche areas, specific kinds of CMSs, e-commerce, programming, etc. The fact of the matter is that any county is bound to have far too many options, driving you mad searching.

    Limit your search to an area (it could be geographically or topically). Otherwise, ask around for referrals, that can be far easier

    He's probably just looking for a list of email addresses to spam

    (Oh I'm only joking, don't be so sensitive.)

    Uhm… well, I really don’t understand the commotion regarding my reply? I didn’t see or intend anything negative in/with it?

    Please forgive my ignorance for not speaking English natively.

    I think its a cultural thing, VIPStephan, I see both ways (since I'm native English speaker living in your country). Could be read that you were being rude in English (as there are many meanings with how you structure a phrase), but it would not be so in German.

    Yeah, that’s what I thought. I’d just say: „Von welchem Land sprichst du?“ and it would be as neutral as it can get and I had just converted it word by word into English. But how’d you express this in English? “Which country do you mean?” That sounds a little too blunt to me.

    Its a valid point too, sometimes people forget the internet is worldwide and that 'country' refers to 193 (give or take on how you slice sovereignty) different places.

    That is why a local search or a search by a niche service is a good way to narrow your results, or as VIPStephan says look at directories like the Yellow Pages.

    I agree, linkedin has many professionals from many web development companies out there from your country and others too. Hope you will get someone from there to help you out with your needs.
