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.

This company is a farce crooked organization and a conduit for defamation and false information through unchecked and unverified so called “customer reviews”. When a company becomes a conduit for libel they should be made legally accountable. Instead they hide behind a computer system that supposedly chooses the reviews and posts them, which bears the question, is there a bunch of inept idiots managing the site, unable to make sure that damaging unfounded, non-factual, smearing “reviews” get posted unchecked?
Our research on how this company functions is scary enough to urge the consumer not to rely on their so called reviews. It is guaranteed that the majority of their reports are false. This company should be investigated by the SEC and the FCC.

We were all shocked to see the unprofessionalism of management who don’t even have graduate degrees or are PhDs in business and are locked up in their offices collecting bonuses and perks besides their salaries. As for the folks out here, Yelp is no longer regarded as a resource to rely on. Many get blocked without legitimate reasons and others who can barely write decently get posted. Honest reviews, you say? Well, we know of many who counteract a negative review with a positive. Sorry to say that your phony software that checks up on reviewers is a farce! Since there is no way to contact or give you feedback on your website, we will ALL vote with our feet and go elsewhere. Keep up the non-transparency and you will soon be history. It is what it is, you are what you are, and what goes around comes around!!!

To whom it may concern:

There is a fraudulent listing for Attorneys:

Norman and Patricia Francis at

My current location is not in the state of NJ and I AM NOT an attorney. I am an Engineer and my business number is 888-67-STEMM.

Please remove that fraudulent listing.

I cannot see the reviews I posted on the businesses. I want to see them to update the information. You claim businesses can’t pay you to get bad reviews removed. I want to talk to someone at Yelp. My phone number is 951-536-****. Ruth

I would like to complain about your support staff especially the pos named Bruce! He is absolutely positively the WORST SOB on your Support team.
This is my case number.

He gave me the weakest excuse ever for why my reviews were not showing up!!! We don’t support the iPhone iOS at this time!!! Liar, liar, another business near me shows up on my iPhone so what’s your excuse now!!!! It will probably be my model of iPhone 6plus is not supported right!!!!

For your reference this is Case #: 3468334

Dear Sir/Madam;
I have a customer who did a yelp review and appears to have the wrong address for our business. We use to be at the address listed at 5151 post rd, Dublin oh under Complete Chiropractic There is now a new Chiropractic business that took that location and has no affiliation with us. I have multiple patients that are yelp users that want to post a review and are waiting to make certain the address is correct. My request is to have us listed on yelp as Complete Chiropractic llc 6740A Avery Muirfield dr, Dublin , oH 43017 for both Dr. Chuck Markulis and Dr. Brian Briggs. Office phone#(614)798-**** If possible could we have current reviews listed with updated information. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer. Sincerely, Brian Briggs

It is a shame that companies like Yelp insist on FORCING people with religious beliefs to do things the way YELP thinks they should do it. that is the way the north korean government works. I thought that in America there was religious freedom to do as their religion tells them. I thought that was what america was founded on.
I think in a few years this country will be worse than north korea thanks to people like the Yelp CEO.

What religious beliefs are they enforcing? I’m interested to know. None of my business reviews show up!

Regarding the open letter by CEO Jeremy Stoppelman to states considering laws that allow discrimination:
Not a very educated or informed person for being a CEO, but very willing to parrot the ignorant knee-jerk blather from interest group ‘alerts’ that mischaracterize and promote a false narrative. Before you start writing open letters, Jeremy, understand what the subject matter is and what the facts are – otherwise you expose yourself as the unreasonable and irrational person that only contributes to bullying, intellectual dishonesty, and mob rule.

This is in regards to the recent decision by the CEO to boycott Indiana for passing a religious freedoms bill. Newsflash idiot, this is America, being gay is a choice, choosing to not tolerate it is a choice as well. Nobody has the right to force anyone to do something against their beliefs. Not even the wanna be king obama. Hopefully you will boycott Indiana and remove all association with the state as well as any other state you are associated with. Not a single state that has true AMERICANS in it need you or your company pushing the socialist/communist agenda of this current UNAMERICAN administration. I am in Louisiana and we have a very similar bill, please feel free to take your communist agenda out of here as well.

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.
