    I simply do not see the value in Yelp

    If I know and area well enough - then I can navigate on my own. If I am on travel and visitig a city for the first time, my auto has GPS and I can easily navigate to wherever I need to go. Yelp does not seem to be a disruptive technology nut more of feature that can be performed by a lot of other products too.

      Strong Increase of Unique Visitors of the flagshipsite of Local Corp in December: 22,738,205 Unique Visitors after 18,745,842 in November are very excellent (Source: Siteanalytics). That is a monthly increase of 21.3%. And this is a year-over-year growth of 32.15% from 17,206,4114 MUV's to 22,738,205 MUV's.

      Yelp has only 21,017,453 Monthly Unigue Visiitors against the 22,738,205 Unique Visitors of Local Corp, but Yelp has the 38-fold market-cap of Local Corp with 1,350 million against the idiotic low 36 million of Local Corp.

    • It's not a map. It's a way to find a good business wherever you are. Any time I go somewhere new, I use the "search nearby" function to find highly rated restaurants close by. It does everything Angie's List does but with far more reviews to get a better sense of a business. Plus it sometimes has Groupon-like discounts right on my phone.
