[you have to watch the video to get the reference]

Do you think this is how certain users secure advertising deals managing advertising campaigns that pay so well?


Re that guys specific situation, I am not sure Yelp is actually involved in the shady behavior, but that saleswoman appears to be pretty unethical if what that guy was saying is true.

A problem with yelp is that all the reviews claim to be actual customers but they don’t actually verify this to be true.

Find the fire hydrant in my Avatar for a prize.

Don't know if anyone has actually ever had to deal with Yelp to advertise with them, but I've had the pleasure of doing this before. It's a horrible experience, as they wouldn't stop harassing me everyday asking for me to advertise on their platform and saying that they had tons of coupons for a business like mine.

Then I asked what their average CPC is, which at first they didn't want to answer but they said the average for my industry is $7-10 -- which is about 5 times the cost per click of google ads.

So not only do they try to continue annoying you in order to get you to sign up, they do it in a way that makes it seem like it's a 'deal' and that they're looking out for you and your business.

Yelp is a shit show.

I second this experience. I find Yelp useful for restaurant and business reviews (provided there are numerous reviews) but as a business I would not do business with them.

The restaurant owner who asked for 1-star Yelp reviews

How one small business owner flipped the online review ecosystem on its head.



In 2014, chef Davide Cerretini advertised a special that would forever change his fate: Anyone who left his restaurant a 1-star review on Yelp would get 25% off a pizza.

See, his Bay Area-based Italian joint, Botto Bistro, was at a crossroads. Like many small businesses, it was enslaved to the whims of online reviewers, whose public dispatches could make or break its reputation.

He’d had enough: It was time to pry the stars from the “cold, grubby hands of Yelpers” and take control of his own destiny.

But the move would set Cerretini at the center of a long-standing battle between Yelp and disgruntled business owners — a battle including cries of “extortion,” review manipulation, and predatory advertising tactics.

To be a hundred percent honest, because of my experiences with yelp on a business basis -- I don't think I could find it reliable due to the fact that it is massively manipulated, and that Yelp will help your business achieve higher ratings if you are to pay them.

They're a business, and people forget that Yelp isn't going to be looking out for your best interest as a consumer. They're looking for their best interest as a business.

AVOID YELP AT ALL COSTS. STILL A SHIT SHOW.
