Yelp History

Yelp was launched in San Francisco, California in 2004 by former Paypal software engineers Russel Simmons and current CEO Jeremy Stoppelman.  The site focuses on reviews of local businesses with an emphasis on dining and nightlife.

In 2008, the company expanded to the east coast by opening an office in Manhatten.  A Canadian version of the site was also launched that same year.

In 2009, Yelp expanded to the UK market and later to France, Spain and Austria.

In 2012, the company went public and also acquired one of their main competitors, Qype.

Yelp current provides reviews for consumers in 13 countries.

I have been a yelper since May of 2008, when Yelp first expanded to the East Coast. I have submitted many reviews, each of them legitimate and reflecting my first-hand experience with the business in question.

I posted a review on August 10, 2012, two and a half years ago, of a Brookline optician (Arcade Optical). Very recently, the yelp robot decided that my review was fake, and moved to the “not recommended” section.

This is rude and insulting. Worse, Yelp offers NO mechanism for addressing this. They offered no notice, notification, warning, no mechanism for me to confirm that it was real or to even know that my review had been set aside this way.

The brick wall that Yelp has erected around itself is as revolting as the arrogant behavior of its robot. It’s clear to me, from my experience, that yelp has ZERO interest in user loyalty. That, in turn, makes each and every review suspect.

Dear Yelp,

By reading through all of these reviews I guess I’m not alone in saying that this company doesn’t give two craps about their business clients. Just like a majority of the business owners have said here, you guys love to remove legitimate reviews while allowing nasty, rude, disrespectful people to keep their false reviews on. I have had a handful of REAL customers come to me and ask me why you deleted their comments, I have tried to email you but NO ONE gets back to me! I’ve tried adding my profile picture so that I can actually try to respond back to these losers but instead constantly tell me my picture isn’t good enough? What kind of picture are you looking for? I’ve sent over 10 different face pictures and still nothing. This is such a shame. You guys are pathetic.
