Reviewer: Sportsguy17 (talk · contribs) 01:45, 2 December 2013 (UTC) I will be reviewing this article. I will be busy on weekdays, but will try to get to it as much as I can. This may take up to and maybe a little over one week. Sportsguy17 :) (click to talkcontributions) 11:33, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

I copyedited the Lead per your note at the GAN Talk page. I also double-checked the citations and added some missing parameters like accessdates, publishers, and fixed some Wikilinks issues; fixed some other grammar and copyediting issues as well, like double periods, extra spaces, etc.
This sentence is sort of bothering me "WhitePages has the largest database of contact information of Americans.[18]" It sounds awkward, but not sure how to fix it. CorporateM (Talk) 23:27, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I did a quick Google News search to see if the article was still up-to-date and came across this: "Just a few weeks ago, WhitePages turned a huge page in the company’s history when it bought out its venture capital investors, paying $80 million to buy back shares from Technology Crossover Ventures and Providence Equity." (I'll see if I can find a better source) and this. Seems a lot has happened in the last two months while it was pending a GA review. I'll take a look and maybe use a Request Edit to propose some additions. CorporateM (Talk) 18:39, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
