  1. This looks like it could be something very big about to explode. SF restaurateur Pim Techamuanvivit (aka chezpim) has discovered that seamless, its parent grubhub, yelp, and doordash have fraudulent listings for her restaurant(s). She doesn't do takeout or delivery. People are being defrauded, potentially big time, depending on how far this extends. I'd imagine it's the biggest problem with popular restaurants who don't offer takeout or delivery. She found out when someone called her restaurant about an order that hadn't arrived. ETA: I think I screwed up embedding the tweets because clic
  2. According to the Wall Street Journal Yelp is reportedly fishing around for a buyer. The article does a reasonable job of summarizing its financial history and aspects of its controversial existence. From a different perspective, this media source describes how difficult it is to successfully monetize a major social web site. From still a third perspective Comscore a major data provider on digital properties ranked the most popular websites in the US for this past March, here: By comparison Google, ranked first, was measured at 255 million unique devices/people in the US; Yelp ranked 23
  3. Well, here's a story where a restaurant was able to strike back at the most arrogant of current customer behavior backed by the threat of a horrendous yelp review. A Boston restaurant was entirely abused by two arrogant "customers". The restaurant "niced them to death" and managed to get their pictures. The two threatened horrendous yelp reviews. To date no review has surfaced on yelp from these two ingrates...but if one does, not only should they be "outlawed from restaurants" they should be outlawed from ever reviewing again, imho.
  4. Yelp has made a slight change that hasn't gotten publicity. It has to do with filtered reviews. What was once called "filtered reviews" which showed at the bottom of the list of reviews is now described as "xxx (a number) of other reviews that are not recommended". When one clicks on the link to those reviews instead of a captcha the link directly takes you to those reviews. Its slightly easier for a visitor to access these reviews. From my quick scan of this with regard to some businesses and restaurants with a lot of "filtered reviews" I didn't see a difference or significant dif
  5. Right now there is an on going AMA (I am a ) Redditt thread with Jeremy Stoppleman, Yelp's CEO and a lot of Redditters. http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1q6xqn/i_am_jeremy_stoppelman_ceo_and_cofounder_of_yelp/ The tone of the comments are decidedly negative . It sure makes for interesting reading .
  6. I remember when you could go to Yelp.com for useful reviews of local businesses and services. Pretty much any business, small or large, had member reviews that were relatively fair and helpful. Even some city services were reviewed. Back then I would have happily given the site my five stars. But then Yelp decided social media was the way to build traffic and set up a system to have their members compete for status. First posting more reviews was enough, but soon folks were encouraged to write more entertaining reviews, funnier reviews and ultimately snarkier reviews. Members who didn't post
