Filtering does not work. I just spoke with YELP and asked to talk to their Legal Department. I was told "There is no phone number." Search Google: "YELP Complaints." That's shocking to see 1 star rating our of 5.
Tons of complaints about this company! The filtering does not work. For instance I know a company that has two negative, fake comments from former employees who stole money and material from the owner. They were not filtered, but the 5 star ratings from loyal customers were all filtered. What does that tell about YELP?
It's a fake company that make money on uneducated consumers and owners. They talk about advertising, but there are no benefits of advertising since the business model is fake. Stay away from this stock.
Someone should investigate YELP.
