Finding Businesses with Browse

What's Browse?

Browse allows you to list all businesses in a particular sub-category. For example, you could search for all Party Venues listed in the Pink-Pound directory.

How can I use Browse?

There are two ways.

  1. By selecting "Browse" from the left-hand menu and choosing the Main and Sub-categories you want to browse.
  2. By using the Breadcrumbs on any Business Listing page. You'll be able to jump directly to the Main or Sub-category of the business listing you're viewing.

Can I narrow down my results?

You can limit your browse results to:

  • Just businesses near your home
  • Just businesses offering web sales or telesales
  • Just gay-owned or gay-friendly businesses
  • Just companies that serve the gay market
  • Only companies that have listed a Member Offer.

Under the left-hand menu of a Browse page, you'll find the control box for these options. To use the Proximity function to show business within a certain distance of your home, you'll need to be logged-in.

What do the results mean?

Browse results show you all the businesses in the sub-category you have chosen, less any that you filtered with "Selection Options" and less x-rated businesses if you're not logged-in, over 18 years old and with x-rated listings enabled in your profile.

Each entry shows you:

  • The business logo (or a Pinky graphic if they didn't upload one)
  • The business name and address
  • Key profile information, and the distance from your home if you're logged-in
  • The business's Member Offer, if you're logged-in and if they've listed one.

To view the full business listing, click the logo, the business name, or "Click for details...".

I'm still stuck... tell me how to do it.

  1. Click "Browse" in the left-hand menu on any Pink-Pound page.
  2. Click one of the Category icons, from "Arts and Culture" to "Travel and Leisure"
  3. Select one of the sub-categories from the right-hand side of the page. If that list of sub-categories is empty, it means we haven't got any businesses yet in the category you've chosen.
  4. Click the business name or logo of any business in the results list to view the full entry, or use the "Selection Options" box on the left-hand side of the page, to filter (or un-filter) your results.

I'm browsing for a business I know is in Pink-Pound, but I can't find it.

  • If the business is x-rated, you may have to log-in and will need x-rated listings enabled in your account, to see the business in your results
  • If you have some of the filters set in the "Selection Options" box, they may be hiding the business you're looking for. Try un-checking "Proximity" and set all selections to "Include All Options"
  • Perhaps the business is listed in a different sub-category: you could search for the business instead.
  • If the business listing has been suspended for some reason, it won't be listed.
