  • Yelp Investors Will Soon Be Calling For Help [View article]
    Would never ask for a review on yelp, always ask for reviews on Google places, much more effective for SEO and search, yelp has a terrible reputation among business owners. Just Google "yelp extortion" to see what's really going on with yelp.

    The advertisers are just ignorant about what they are in for with yelp,Yelp will take a business on as an advertiser then people go on to yelp and slam the business with negative reviews. How can this business model succeed in the long term? If you look at the majority of yelp advertisers, they have no reviews, the businesses that bought the advertising have no idea what they are in for, as soon as they see what actually happens to their reputation, ie filtering and negative dialogue about their business appears they wise up and run screaming from the building. Why would anybody in their right mind pay to have their business slandered?

  • Yelp: Just Getting Started [View article]
    You guys are busy looking at the financials but the point you miss is that yelp is being constantly sued, they defame and slander businesses and practice extortion, its only a matter of time before their legalized extortion anti slapp loophole is closed. There are way too many businesses upset with this company model and it will cause a change in law in regards to how on line reviews will be conducted and handled. Too many people a re being hurt by yelps practices, Google "yelp extortion" put down the financials and read what's going on in the real world.
