About Wolverhampton.co.uk

Who are Geoware Media?

We are an innovative new company, passionate about combining strong UK website addresses with powerful community networking tools, all wrapped up in great design. We have a genuine desire to support local life online.
 

Why should I use Wolverhampton.co.uk

Wolverhampton.co.uk will help you find and choose the best businesses in your area, whether you're looking for a trustworthy builder or a friendly Indian restaurant. You can read reviews from real people who live or work in Wolverhampton, and write your own reviews and recommendations to help others out.

Wolverhampton.co.uk will also help you find or advertise properties, cars and jobs in your area and stay connected with other like-minded people passionate about Wolverhampton and what it has to offer.

If you’re a local business you can take ownership of your listing and use it to promote your business and stay in touch with what your customers are saying about you.

But what makes us different from some of the other listings sites out there? Well, we don’t have any display advertising or annoying pop-ups for starters. We’re also proud of our clear design and easy to use tools, as well an absolute focus on what you, our users, tell us. We’re not sponsored by any big businesses so we’re totally independent and have no hidden agenda. We don’t aggregate content from others sites so all our reviews are generated by genuine users. And we also think our classified advertising is pretty good value and much easier to use than some of our competitors.

Finally, our domain name – Wolverhampton.co.uk – is absolutely the natural home of high quality content about Wolverhampton so we’re really easy to find online.
 

Is Wolverhampton.co.uk free?

What can I do with my points?

Every user from all the Geoware Media sites will be entered into one prize draw, which will take place on the first day of every month. The more points a user has the more chance they have of winning. For example a user with 10 points is 10 times as likely to win than a user with 1 point.

If you are lucky enough to win a prize, you will not then be eligible for the prize draw the following month. This means that in a 12 month period you could win a prize a maximum of six times (and with that kind of luck we’re going to be very interested to know your secret!)

Prizes may vary from month to month –follow us on Twitter or on our Facebook page to keep track of what’s up for grabs each month or make sure you’re signed up to receive our email alerts.

Reviews, Ratings & Tags

What can I review?

Any business, service or place as long as it has a real physical location. For example, you might want to write a review of your local Indian takeaway, a favourite florist, a reliable builder, who's never let you down, or a place you visited that your children loved. If a business, that you would like to review, isn't listed, then you can add it to our database.
 

How do I submit a review?

Once you've found the listings page of a business you'd like to review, click the 'Add Review' button. After you've written your review, awarded a rating and added a couple of tags, click the 'Submit' button, and your review will be instantly added.

 

How do I find a business to review?

Click on the 'Add Review' button, that appears at the top of every page. To find the place you're looking for, type the name of the place in the left hand search box, and select the location from the drop-down menu on the right. Click 'Search' and Wolverhampton.co.uk will try and find the business you're looking for in the database. If you can't find the business you're after, try repeating the search, without selecting a location. If it you still can't find it, then you can add the business yourself. After the business has been added, you will be able to review it.
 

Can I edit a review?

No, we don't allow users to edit their review. If you have changed your opinion about the business, we suggest you write another review explaining why.
 

Someone has unfairly reviewed my business or a business I’m connected with. What should I do?

Unless a review has broken our Community Guidelines or Terms and Conditions it will not be removed from Wolverhampton.co.uk. However, if you genuinely feel that your business has been defamed on Wolverhampton.co.uk, and the comments are breaking our Terms and Conditions, simply use the 'Report this Review' link at the bottom of the review and we will investigate the issue.
 

What is a tag?

A tag is a word that you can add to a business to give it meaning personal to you or helpful to others. For example, you could tag a restaurant as: romantic, friendly, cosy. When other users search for something specific, Wolverhampton.co.uk will find any business that matches those tags.

 

How do I add a tag to a business?

When you are reviewing a business, you will also have the opportunity to add a tag.
 

What does the 'Helpful' button show?

It indicates how many users thought the review was helpful. The user who wrote the review receives two points each time someone clicks the 'Helpful' button. We encourage our users to rate reviews in this way as it helps us to ensure the usefulness of our listings and the quality of reviews.

Adding and claiming a business

How do I add a business?

Either click the ‘Add a Business’ button on the Home page, or if you’ve searched for a business and cannot find it, click the ‘Recommend a new business’ button that appears below the search results.

I want to claim my business but my email address has a different domain to my business website. What can I do?

As a basic security measure, to prevent unauthorised users from attempting to claim a business which doesn’t belong to them, we only permit users to claim businesses if they have an email address with a domain name shared by the business’ website.
