    Need online service website examples

    I am in the process of doing a major redesign for an online service, and I am looking for good examples of websites that provide a service and push the user towards one main task, (that's not just reading a news article/blog post, or buying something).

    My site's purpose is to help the user find a professional to help them with their problem, kind of like this physician directory:
    http://doctor.webmd.com/physician_fi...x?sponsor=core

    but we collect more information about the problem on later pages. I've found pages like elance, and that's similar enough, but I'm after popular sites that work well. I'm mostly concerned with the homepage at this stage.

    Sorry, I am being very vague. I would give the explicit site name, but I don't want to perturb the client. Thanks!

    The only sites that offer a service but not sell anything that I can think of are related to Inland Revenue or Social Services.

    Maybe something like google Adwords? They offer a service that you pay with your credit card, but they don't particularly sell a product.

    For me it's just a matter of persistence and observation.. you have to keep adding to the site.

    Sorry, I meant to exclude e-commerce sites specifically. Something like expedia would work just fine, but amazon wouldn't.
