It used to be better
There's been a trend over the last several years to constantly refine, constantly update and constantly change, even if it's not necessary for the better. And often the baby and the bath water get thrown out together.
Although I still like Yelp, this version of the app isn't as good as past versions. Most notable is the layout: there's a big star prominently at the bottom that it wants you to use to check in, take a photo, or write a review (even if you haven't yet selected a business) as if it wants to be Facebook or Instagram. To which I say "You be you Yelp, you aren't Instagram." Why is it so hard to find my profile? Or my bookmarks? Instead, it has an "activity" button prominently featured for me to check messages. I'm sorry, but I'm not interested in using Yelp to send email.
Another thing I find annoying is that it only gives you top reviewer status if you use your real picture. I find it difficult to give a business a poor review (especially one I frequent often) if I have to put my face next to the review. I think this is a way for them to skew reviews towards five stars. I don't think it's helpful to have a bunch of overly positive top reviewers exposing their fluffy thoughts on here. I prefer the honest truth.
They remove or hide 1 star reviews at request of business owners
Regardless of what their claims might be, Yelp does indeed remove low ratings and poor reviews at the request of business owners and managers, most notably ones who advertise with them. One of the sleazy ways around admitting to this is placing a poor review into the reviews "not recommended by yelp" area, hoping you won't read them. They will throw an occasional 4 or 5 star review into the mix to make it look like it's all on the up and up, but it is not. After watching several local businesses in the area for some time it's almost comical to watch the negative review on them disappear in a short period of time, with yelp hiding behind the pretense of this process being "automated". Be careful when choosing a place to eat or shop when using yelp, you can easily get burned by false positive reviews and deleted or hidden truthful reviews. Always double check with sites like tripadvisor and other review sites, where they do not cater to businesses for their own personal gain. Any business who advertises with Yelp can have your negative reviews deleted immediately, no questions asked. These guys are bought and paid for by some of the shadiest business in the entire world. Not to be trusted.
worst review site there is
Yelp is awful. simply awful. I have quite a number of friends that are small business owners and they all experience the same thing. Yelp isn't interested in being honest with reviews. they only post the negative, and the outdated. ask your client if they're happy enough, would they mind going to Yelp to give a review, the review goes up, and within hours Yelp takes it down. it's gets filed under "not recommended". why??? and then if you go to the "not recommended" link, you guessed it, they show the the negatives first , all the positive 5 star reviews are buried deep within the site. try to call Yelp for an explanation? nope, they can't be reached. email them? you get a canned template response. so, apparently the only way to get them to notice you is if you PAY THEM to advertise. of course they have to repeatedly state the opposite all over their site. wonder why that is??? absolute worst review site there is .....
