It's pretty hard to tell which service has the best selection of online company profiles. There's no single standard these businesses need to follow in terms of what they claim to offer, and no one seems to have sat down and verified each company's claims. But here are claims of some better-known sources of business news and articles available through a search by company name:
* Hoover's -- 16 million companies and 3,000 news sources.
* IDexec -- 900,000 company profiles.
* Goliath/ECNext -- 3 million profiles, articles and reports.
* Onesource.com -- 1.7 million in depth profiles.
