Not Worth The Time Or Money.

I’ve honestly only had my page active for Yelp for only a week. 7 days that’s it. In those 7 days, I have gotten someone claiming that I worked on their house which I did not do, numerous scam calls trying to get my information and get me to transfer to Google, and when I asked on average how many jobs would I receive, I was told a minimum of 10. No one has messaged me for a job. And now I am in a situation where scammers are calling and texting my phone non-stop and I have an over $150 charge that I am going to reluctantly have to pay. Very disappointed and dissatisfied. As a small business owner and a family man I deserve better than this. UPDATE: So to even get your business name off of Yelp, you have to shut down your business and delete all other social media of your business. Pretty much if you cancel on Yelp, Yelp goes out of there way to make it near impossible to have a web presence afterwards. Why? How is that even a legal business practice? Got it cancelled. Was told that would be charged on the 1st for the week however it’s in 2 separate billing cycles?? So I’m getting charged 5 days in one and 2 days in another. Only to figure out that I got charged today! It is the 23rd! All in all I’m happy I got out of this financial death trap! Also I AM NOT GOING TO GOOGLE ADS. This way other users will know this review is coming from a an actual person, who dealt with firsthand experience.

Run Away!!! This rating is really negative infinity stars!

Yelp as well as their “Biz” app is just as horrible as all of the reviews say. They steal reviews, claim to have some algorithm that can tell real reviews from fake ones, but customers who leave multiple reviews on Yelp are listed as “not recommended” and hidden as well as overall rating affected if you do not advertise with them. It’s so obvious they lie because my one and only negative review was from a customer out of state and has only ever left one review (who goes out of state for 3D4D ultrasound of their baby?) Nice try Yelp! But explain why that review is still up, yet 80% of the rest of our (all 5 star reviews) are from real customers who have left numerous reviews, but those are in the “not recommended” section. If you are even thinking about getting involved with Yelp, I would strongly encourage you watch the documentary “Billion Dollar Bully” first. It’s time for Small businesses to organize another class Action lawsuit now that we have more proof! I will be throwing a huge party when Yelp finally goes out of business! Wonder how they have 4 stars on this review of their app? I can’t find a review here that is more than one star.

Many shortcomings but the only option

I have 16 five star reviews, but only 6 that show and 10 are stuck in unrecommended, some of them for over a year now. I’m a small business that works hard for these reviews and it’s incredibly frustrating to not be able to showcase these reviews to potential clients. Yelp is also frustrating in that it lumps Musical Instruments and Teachers into the same category despite them being two completely unrelated careers, I’m a violinist/teacher yet get bombarded with so many requests for guitar lessons, piano tunings and other unrelated requests, yet have to waste so much time replying or else my messages response rate goes down and is negatively impacted. I’ve also blacklisted and tried to block any tags and association with mariachi, yet the majority of my messages are requesting mariachi. It’s a huge waste of time replying to all of these unrelated messages at the fear my message response rate will be negatively impacted. Yelp has a lot of improvements to make and I’m overall very dissatisfied, yet don’t have much better options for advertising as a small business and am just having to make do.

Billion Dollar Bully

I didn’t want to believe that such a big company would actually live up to its description on a documentary that seemed like it was out to get them. But fortunately for the documentary “Billion Dollar Bully” it’s true! They claim businesses who pay to advertise and those who don’t receive the same treatment however this is easily debunked when they attempt to “extort” money from you and you decline. Day 1: I opened the account, 2 reviews are placed by customers Day 2: Representative attempts to call me to “talk about my account” I decline. Day 3: 3rd customer review placed on the spot does not show up Day 4: representative puts more pressure into calling me to “talk more about it” Day 5: 1 posted review disappears and representative claims all this is happening due to their algorithm weeding out the “fake reviews” Really? Because I bust my bottom to get good reviews and the algorithm just decides they’re fake. Read more reviews here and you’ll see I’m one of many. Try Google reviews, they haven’t got caught or accused of any shady malpractices.Also an automated generic response is placed after every complaint. Maybe it’s their algorithm doing the responding too. Luckily this isn’t Yelp or the “algorithm” would flag me as fake.

Not Too Impressed

Watch Billion Dollar Billy documentary about Yelp and then you decide how you feel about Yelp and how they treat small business owners. I had 5.0 Stars for 6 years and promoted Yelp harder than anyone, at least 10,000+ people and clients I have referred to Yelp and have well over 600-1,000 pictures of work I have done for customers on yelp too. Yelp Calls me daily to try to get me to buy advertising, lies and says its $0.11 then tells me it comes out to thousands of dollars per month and doesn’t offer any advantage at all. Each time I say I’m not interested I get a mysterious bad review from someone who is not a customer, so I can’t even say I’m not interested or they make up stories and put them on your business listings. Then when I complained to Yelp about it, they started filtering out my last sixty 5 Star reviews and continue to filter out 99% of all customer reviews for the last 2 years too. The App also constantly says you have mail, sometime 1-10 messages but when you click on the app there is no messages, even resetting app or resetting I phone doesn’t fix the ongoing problems with Yelp. Yelp feels to me and countless other businesses like a big “Billion Dollar Bully” just like the filmed documentaries about Yelp and how they treat small businesses.

Absolute garbage

I started a business that I dreamed about for years. Took a lot of planning and precious hours to get off the ground. I was so happy to help my customers and to offer them my experience and expertise. Yelp seemed like a logical next step. I’ve heard horror stories but like everyone I thought it would be different with me because I was doing everything by the book. The first problems started when I signed up for local jobs for $150 a month. As soon as you get notification that there’s a job it expires immediately. Finally I just got fed up and disconnected it. Guess what - as soon as the money was turned off I started getting notifications from local jobs that were over a day old and to see them I had to resume my subscription. Scam! No way!After helping countless customers I managed to get a few reviews and was very proud of them. Then a few days later one of the reviews disappeared. Then another, then all the rest followed. The only crappy review that remained is the one that Yelp decided to keep on my profile which totally killed my traffic. Thanks Yelp. I hope you go out of business. This business model is total disgrace and a scam and should be illegal. I looked other successful businesses that wanted nothing to do with Yelp and I applaud them. Bravo. I turned off their services and switched to Google AdWords and am very happy!

App works 75% of the time but Yelp doesn’t deserve my money

Yelp doesn’t deserve one penny of my advertising dollars. When you default every excuse to “because of our algorithm” - which is proprietary and built by you - is just a cop-out. If any customer takes the time to go to Yelp, create an account and leave a review then their experience should be worth something! By filtering out that person’s review Yelp has told them they are not worthy and their opinion and experience isn’t good enough. How do you expect to gain more users if you don’t let people start somewhere? And you’re punishing the businesses - who are PAYING YOUR BILLS in the process!! I will not spend one more cent on Yelp, since your “algorithm” decided to filter out all my positive reviews and leave the negative ones. I will deter everyone I possibly can to avoid Yelp both as a customer and a business. We should not have to spend thousands of dollars - with zero return on investment. I have not gotten any jobs from “we found you on Yelp”. They did find us on other sites and search engines - which don’t filter reviews and have a much more affordable (often free & organic) method for business advertising.

Bad Business’ Practices 👎

I have been in business almost 2 years now, as a small business I decided to expand my social media and figured that Yelp would help, since most of my business comes from Thumbtack. The next day after creating my business on Yelp there was an agent calling me to find out if I wanted to advertise, I decided to give it a try, well guess what, after 3-4 days I had already spent $153 for just 2 leads that actually end up hiring me worth $340... I decided to turn off the ads since it was not making to much sense for me. Today I called Yelp bc few days ago I had a customer writing a review, that now shows as a “not recommended review”, (it turns out this client reached out to me from Instagram... they wanted to show appreciation and I told them, if they wanted to, they could do it on Yelp) the agent explained to me about the video I had already seen on Yelp about how a software determines if a review is valid to be shown or not (which also based on what he mentioned, one factor was the client never reached out to me thru Yelp) after a couple more minutes speaking with the agent his words were these: “Excuse me I have to disconnect the call now” and simply hang up the phone on me. 👎 Very rude and unprofessional, I this people will never get my money again!

High Hopes !

I’m taking yelp out for a test run to see exactly what it is it’s all about. After going with the nurse said other companies that use leads and customer service as their expertise to bring you more work more opportunity and more people to you through via Internet and paying through the nose for leads that 1 million other people get to first that may not even get looked at by me or have already been accomplished and them not doing their part by clicking hired somebody. We’ve all been there if we use apps like this. So far very happy with the YELP and have only been using them for a week as of November 13 but I spoke with customer service about a few things that I had on my mind and they were excellent with the help and it looks like the system that I’ve got in place will tell you just how your doing. I love how they have a budget to set up and they don’t call you and bother you with all these promises to give you. It looks like everything that sit out there mathematically they will show you through graphs or other means to keep you informed at what it is exactly that your business is doing. So far so good thank you yelp

A Different POV

Let me start by saying Yelp is good platform when it’s from a customers point of view, the user interface is great but when you’re the business side, it’s a whole ‘nother story. I personally have the Nearby Jobs feature active. This means when there’s a request for my line of work, I’ll get notified, not hired, just notified. So it’s ok, there’s multiple businesses trying to earn the customers bid. We as businesses don’t get charged to quote, we get charged if customers respond back. Now normally it’s ok if the customer wants to ask a few questions before hiring or going elsewhere. Customers here respond with 2 letters on average, NO, and that is all it takes for Yelp to charge you, a small business $20 to $50 for the ‘conversation’. That’s not fair, it’s like going to a retail store, going to the cashier, I don’t want it, and somehow the property owner charges the cashier for interacting with the customer. The cashier didn’t do any business, all they did was informed of their pricing and the customer says no, that’s good enough to charge the cashier. Same here, Yelp will charge as long as the customer responds back, they offer refunds but you have to explain why, and at their discretion they will approve or decline the refund. Imagine 5 customers reaching out to you and then not choosing your service, you just lost $100 without even making a dollar.
