Yelp News For Digital Marketers

Going out to dinner, choosing a nail salon or getting a tire changed became a booming business for Yelp beginning in 2004, when the business directory and social platform launched. The mixed use of Yelp, as both a must-have business directory for small business owners and crowdsourced reviews for consumers, has led Yelp to a monthly average of 37 million mobile app users and 77 million mobile web users. The reviews top 192 million and there are more than 4 million businesses in the directory. Yelp has recently enhanced its business listings and updated personalization features as it continues to refine search and create better monetization opportunities.
