On its website, the Better Business Bureau offers a search utility that shows which businesses are and are not accredited BBB members, and it provides links to their BBB grades. Consumers can also search for charities and news organizations.
Consumers can search listings by business name, phone number, email address or website URL, according to the BBB. There is also a field to focus searches in or around a city or zip code, and the BBB attempts to tailor its results for the detected locations of its users. Some businesses promote their Better Business Bureau memberships on their websites and at their physical locations.
