I do not know if this is where I can get an answer to how the ESRI/Bing Business Search, sources its NAICS codes and listings........ using the NAICS option?

I ask because I do not get my own company which is listed and/or other companies that I know are listed on NAICS code for GIS in areas that I know these companies are listed

In other words it does not return accurate results in my opinion.......help me understand the results I do get and understand its limits .......ie;  how they are getting their results (RSS feed from SBA or CCR?)

Daniel,

For the ESRI Infogroup Business Dataset I'd advise taking a look at the 2010 Methodology Statement: Business Locations and Business Summary.

As far as the Bing business search I will check internally to see if we have any methodology for it.

Regards,
Jason
