Yelp is it Extortion?


Yelp is the online giant for local business reviews. They have a rabid base of users that are quick to give their opinions on businesses.

Yelp along with Groupon can make or break your local brick and mortar business. Negative reviews on Yelp will show prominently on all of the internet search engines. Your potential customers are very likely to read reviews on Yelp, before deciding to purchase from you.

Also, coupon deal sites like Groupon make their decisions of who to feature and accept are based on your online ratings and reviews. So, negatives on Yelp can prevent you from being accepted into Groupon.

The controversy arises from business owners who feel that they are being extorted by Yelp. The business owners contend that the positive reviews are filtered and the negative reviews highlighted, unless they pay Yelp.

Yelp denies these allegations. However, their is a pattern of complaints from business owners that show that their may be some merit to the allegations.

How to Stop Yelp




Yelp.com boasts millions of users per month. So, if your site is showing negative reviews from Yelpers, it can hurt your local business.

Yelp can inflict damage on your small to medium size business.  Below are several suggestions to stop YELP from hurting your business.

1. Your own website with your own domain name. (Tip: make sure you buy the domain name most closely associated with your business name and possible search terms. example:  SuperFlowers.com and if that is taken take the name plus the town SuperFlowersDenverColorado.com.

2. Make your own review page that is easy to use for your customers.

3. List your business on every local business website instead of Yelp. Examples: Yelllowbot.com, Yellowpages.com, Manta.com, CustomerServiceNumbers.com/LOCAL, Google Local, Yahoo Local, Bing Local, SuperPages.com, Foursquare.com, indeed.com, and Angieslist.com.

4. Encourage your customers to review you on your website and the other local websites. Never mention Yelp.

5. Share all of your positive reviews from every site but YELP, on Facebook, etc..

6. Open Social Marketing Pages for your business on Facebook, Myspace, Linkedin, etc..

7. Check your negative reviewers on Yelp. They may be former employees or competitors. Then you can have your attorneys send Cease and Desist Letters to the reviewers.

8. Spread the word to other business owners and associations about Yelp. Warn them of the possible dangers of listing their business with Yelp.

9. Offer discounts for customers on Coupon Sites, (Groupon.com, and LivingSocial.com) etc.. Just not Yelp.

10. Buy PPC advertising with your keywords linked with Yelp. Example: "Florist Denver Yelp" This will buy you space and allow you to compete with Yelp.
