I love how there are over 20 ethical issue comments and only ONE positive useful, informative review and "somehow" this site has a 90 across the board.... way to be just as bad web of trust...

Recent news on Yahoo! Tech reported on this site's unreliability due to possible extortion from certain companies. Avoid if possible.

This site has some very shady business practices....all reviews are censored to the extent of it they don't like them, they'll edit/remove them. It has a potential of being a good site, but not with the current management in place......

yelp is a corrupt business. they are not business friendly. they will take off good reviews of your company if they feel like it. they only keep the negative reviews on there. horrible management, horrible company. pushy salesmen.

on dinning and local events, etc. by popular vote and discernment. User friendely. Read artc. by East Bay Express, if you read between the lines it's rather positive! Only complaints about sales. Been using it for a couple of months and we the users correspond back and forth so we are up to date on what is reviewed and so far it's right in line with our feelings.

fun and easy way to find, review and talk about what’s great (and not so great) in your world. You already know that asking friends is the best way to find restaurants, dentists, hairstylists, and anything local. Yelp makes it fast and easy by collecting and organizing your friends’ recommendations in one convenient place.
