Posted by Tricia Duryee, owned by AT&T, said it is opening a Seattle office.

The company expects the Seattle office to open on April 23, with as many as 30 employees who will be signing up local advertisers.

Seattle and Denver are among the company's first offices to be opened west of the Mississippi, following new offices in Philadelphia, New York City, Boston and others. said Seattle was selected because a large percentage of people who use its site are from there. had more than 1 billion network searches last year.
