Y! India Local Expands to Kolkata and Hyderabad

Yahoo India Local has expanded the local search product to Kolkata and Hyderabad – taking the total number of supported cities to 6 (after Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi).

The local search space has seen somewhat less action in the last few days and most of the companies are busy figuring out the right distribution and revenue model (click-to-call or content partnership?)

Also, quite lately we have seen whole lot of foodie sites (i.e. vertical local players) sprawling up relying on lead generation mechanism.

What’s the right solution then?

A combination of online/offline model? Does the success like in finding right distribution channel – Mobile/Partnership with lifestyle properties like CCD?

What’s your opinion?
