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 businesses in the entire world. 1 star is much to high for this pathetic, extremely dishonest app that is Yelp. Not to be trusted. Patronizing any of the businesses who advertise with them is extremely risky.
Updated: still love it. I haven't had any issues sine starting it in 2006!! I want to be able to make notes when I bookmark so I can remember why I bookmarked it.
Some claim they remove 1 star reviews. But you can see the reviews that the system removes- I read those too. I mainly read 1 star or 2 stars first- so I can see if they're bogus. People saying Yelp should be sued etc/ then the same hoes for Google & trip advisor or urbanspoon. Get real people. Just write honest reviews with pictures & your stuff won't get deleted.
This app is great!! I love researching new places! I don't like one sentence reviews though! People use your vocabulary & tell all the positives & negatives in detail!! Writing "food is great" won't make me want to eat there. Being part of the elite has been awesome. Meeting other yelpers & business people is so fun. This is the best app for traveling!!!
App is great for good eats and laughs
All in all the app is great for finding something to eat on the fly. I read a lot of the comments and some of them are just to funny not to read. The honesty of people though is what makes you think twice about some places and that's what I look for.
As a business owner though I dislike the amount of pressure their sales team puts on you just to advertise. I shouldn't get multiple emails a week about signing up now for special rates or the now monthly check up call. This is suppose to be ratings and reviews by people without coaching or buying reviews, but it seems other businesses take advantage of it and will pay for 5 star reviews which is a shame.
