Using Top Business Lists for market research and lead generation?

When I was looking for my first job out of college, and in many of my subsequent job searches, I've often looked at the top business lists for the area where I was looking.

The print editions of the Cincinnati Business Courier and Dayton Business Journal, for example, contain top 25 lists of various companies and individuals in various categories. It looks like these lists can be ordered online, too: here's the link for Cincinnati Business Lists. From this link you can search other markets and categories, too.

As a job seeker, I've personally preferred to spend some time at my public library, searching their archived lists, instead of spending money on these lists.

Have you found these lists to be helpful?

Good idea using the library. I also use Reference USA from the library. It's free and you can access it from the libraries web site.
