Places

Places are, in a way, even more confusing than names. After all, people can expect to be listed by their first and last names. But there's no telling how a place might be listed! A city and state might be listed (but will it be Oklahoma or OK?). A city alone might be listed, especially for very local businesses (but are they going to list the nearest big city or the small town that they're actually in?). And sometimes a locally understood area might be listed, but no city name at all (North Carolina's “Triad” area covers several different cities).

Tearing your hair out yet? Dodge a lot of this confusion by assuming that there's some existing organization. If you're searching for a place, and you have its full address and a zip code, try searching for just the name of the place and the zip code. Or the name of the place and its area code. Or the name of the place and the city. The point is that you can use the existing organization structures under which it's already listed (zip code, area code) to find it.
